Hart, Wilshere miss out as England announce squad for 2018 World Cup

I should have been in England’s World Cup squad says Wilshere

Trent Alexander-Arnold is 19, still lives with his mother, and was playing in Liverpool's reserve team this time previous year.

Was Leon Bailey *really* "trolling" England fans shortly before the announcement of their World Cup squad? No.

Back in August the midfield playmaker was coming off his best season for Liverpool - eight goals and a crucial part of Jurgen Klopp's attacking system.

England have announced their final 23-man squad for the 2018 World Cup.

Following early speculation, Joe Hart and Jack Wilshere will not be taking the flight to Russian Federation this summer.

Rashford's United teammate Ashley Young (32) is also celebrating his first World Cup call-up, albeit at a very different stage of his career.

Southgate has been strong-willed in his 18 months in charge - he virtually brought Wayne Rooney's long England career to a close - and he hasn't buckled under pressure. When we pick young players, it's not just because they are young, it's because their performances deserve it.

But the most striking inclusion is uncapped teenager Alexander-Arnold. Alexander-Arnold enjoyed a stunning breakthrough season with Liverpool and is in line to start when Jürgen Klopp's men face Real Madrid in next weekend's Champions League final.

Hart, now aged 31 and with 75 England caps to his name, has one year remaining on his contract at City.

Today, Gareth Southgate named Rashford as one of the four strikers he'll bring to Russian Federation in June. "Today that dream came true".

"Mum we're off to the World Cup!".

Danny Rose who has also had an injury plagued season was given the nod by Southgate and Ruben Loftus-Cheek will also fly England's flag in Russian Federation.

Nevertheless, Guardiola recognises the important role Hart played at a club he has taken to new heights this term.

Jordan Henderson, Raheem Sterling, Eric Dier, Ashley Young, Dele Alli, Jesse Lingard, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Fabian Delph.

Unsurprisingly, there were many that missed the call, including favourite Jack Wilshere and West Ham goalkeeper Joe Hart, who has been England's number one for the last three major tournaments.

Everton's Jordan Pickford, Stoke City's Jack Butland and Burnley's Nick Pope are the chosen stoppers who will be vying to start in Russian Federation.
