Sir Trevor Brooking insists that Fabio Capello's successor will inherit a fully focused squad when the European Championships kick off in July.
England will have a new manager in place for Euro 2012, following Capello's departure on Wednesday.
Brooking, the FA's director of football development, has been confirmed as one of the four men, along with David Bernstein, Alex Horne and Adrian Bevington, who will select the new England manager.
And Brooking has no qualms that whoever takes charge will have no issues settling quickly into management.
"Whatever squad is selected, players of that level will adapt really quickly," said Brooking.
"You don't want to go to a tournament divided, you want the spirit, quality and atmosphere to make results.
"The atmosphere with the group of lads I have seen for the last 18 months is really positive. Hopefully what has happened this week will be turned around quickly."
As Brooking acknowledges, there is still a lot of ground to be made up after the dreadful performances at the last World Cup.
"We had a really poor tournament last time," he said.
"I'm sure Fabio will be disappointed he does not have the opportunity to rectify it. We want to emerge from this summer with something much more positive."
