England announce final 23-man squad for 2018 World Cup

England announce final 23-man squad for 2018 World Cup

Both players will be missing from the England plane to the tournament in Russian Federation next month, but Liverpool right-back Alexander-Arnold will be on the flight as Southgate opted for a youthful selection.

Now he's preparing to mark Cristiano Ronaldo in next week's Champions League final and is the emblematic figure of a youthful and boldly assembled England squad heading to the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Liverpool's 19-year-old Trent Alexander-Arnold is the headline inclusion among the youth and he will line up in Russian Federation alongside the likes of Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Marcus Rashford.

But the most striking inclusion is uncapped teenager Alexander-Arnold.

ENGLAND have announced their 23-man squad for the World Cup - but who are the best players to have missed out?

Joe Hart is reportedly incensed with West Ham manager David Moyes for omitting him in the club's final three games of the season, as his lack of playing time has resulted in his axe from England's World Cup squad. Or give the three guys who have basically had a better season a chance?

"If I was Gareth Southgate I would sell this on youngsters", he said at the BBC's launch of their coverage of the tournament.

"The first call-up for Trent Alexander-Arnold is well deserved". He often takes free kicks and has played in midfield in recent Premier League matches. "Today that dream came true".

'After years of you standing on the touchline in the cold and rain, Mum we're off to the World Cup, ' the tweet read. He'll be 34 at the next World Cup so this was probably his last opportunity. We have got some great young players.

Midfielders: Eric Dier (Tottenham Hotspur), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Dele Alli (Tottenham Hotspur), Jesse Lingard (Manchester United), Fabian Delph (Manchester City), Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Chelsea).

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

Southgate has made 12 changes to the squad that floundered at Euro 2016, underlining his desire to build a group capable of providing long-term success - even if that means more experienced players missing out.

Southgate has two more warm-up friendlies, against Nigeria on June 2 at Wembley and Costa Rica in Leeds five days later, to fine tune his preparations before England's World Cup begins against Tunisia on June 18.
