England Name Liverpool, Chelsea Youngsters In World Cup Squad; Drop Wilshere, Hart

England coach Gareth Southgate has announced his 23-man final squad for the Russia 2018 World Cup.

Former England centre-back Southgate made the announcement via the official England Twitter handle on Wednesday.
As expected, the likes of Harry Kane, who scored 30 Premier League goals for Tottenham Hotspur this season, Dele Alli, Jamie Vardy, Reheem Sterling, Gary Cahill and Kyle Walker are all included.

However, there is no room for Manchester United defender Chris Smalling, Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere and Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart in the squad.

The surprise inclusions is Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who spent the just ended season on loan at Crystal Palace, and Liverpool youngster Trent Alexander-Arnold.

England will face the Super Eagles of Nigeria in a friendly in London on June 2 before playing Tunisia, Belgium and Panama in the group phase in Russia.

England’s official World Cup 2018 squad:

– Butland, Pickford, Pope

– Stones, Jones, Walker, Cahill, Rose, Maguire, Alexander-Arnold, Young, Trippier

– Henderson, Dier, Alli, Lingard, Sterling, Delph, Loftus-Cheek

– Kane, Vardy, Rashford, Welbeck

    That guy doesn’t know what’s good for him… He would have been a sure bet with Nigeria going to the world cup. That would have improved his market value but he chose to remain in the doldrum.

  • He is still eligible to play for Nigeria cos he hs nt been involved in a competitive match for england senior team that’s if Nigeria is still interested!

    If you wish cry, we all want you so early but you turn your destined portion of being a part of the glorious Eagles down, by now experience is now your teacher – you a shame in your own shadow. Your greatest regret will be Nigeria reaching the height you never imaging, I won’t mention your name but my country brethren knows who am referring to. I went to his Twitter handle to solicit for Nigeria that he may join the eagles but shame as fallen upon you. You will never make that English squad again and no body will welcome you to this Great Super Eagle’s team. One nation together will stand we dnt need you. You lucky sha. Did we still need him here(NIGERIA) my country people?

  • The truth is that he would not have made the SE team either.

  • Emmy-Baz 3 months ago

    @cj……. you’re right brother.. he wouldn’t have make the eagles squad either because his form has dropped tremendously…. I think the guy is over-hyped. he should stick with his English team, very soon he will learn lesson even Agbonlahon that is better than him never made it to a major tournament with the English team…

    DID YOU KNOW:
    Tammy Abraham was left out of the list going to Russia 2018 World Cup!
    ..A good lesson for Lookman Ademola.

    • We should always respect other people decision. If one player does not play for Nigeria, others will. There is no need to mock or abuse Abraham

  • Edoman of New Jersey, USA. 3 months ago

    Abraham is not worthy or ripe or ready for any National call up. He is a below average player.

  • Bomboy 3 months ago

    They quickly called him to their national team just to prevent him from playing for Nigeria. He should have known that they weren’t really interested in him but he foolishly fell for the bait. Poor boy. No good adviser.

  • England team are made of local player.  Of course local players cannot win World Cup.
