Five players who England should consider for the World Cup

Five players who England should consider for the World Cup

Southgate named his squad for the forthcoming global double header against Holland and Italy and, understandably, it will be the main topic of conversation when the players report for duty on Monday.

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has grown frustrated at how contract talks with the Gunners have stalled in recent months but there remains optimism on the side of the club that a new deal can be agreed by the end of the season.

Harry Kane is sidelined with an ankle injury that will keep him out until next month.

"(Leaving Cahill out was) a very hard call because Gary has played a lot of our qualifying matches and is a great guy", Southgate said.

Stoke City's Jack Butland and Jordan Pickford of Everton are also options between the posts, and Southgate conceded that Hart's position is no longer secure as he runs the rule over his squad with the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation on the horizon.

Nick Pope, Burnley's twenty-five-year-old goalkeeper, joins Joe Hart, Jack Butland and Jordan Pickford as the goalkeepers called up to the squad.

"We want to learn things from the (friendly) games about individual players and also get back reconnected with how we train, how we work and how we play because we're only 90 days away from the first game of a World Cup", Southgate said.

"The reality is in the bigger matches Ashley Young gets the nod and I saw him against Liverpool, against [Mohamed] Salah, the other day [and] he was fantastic". "It's always a huge boost for us as a team when we've got our travelling support with us", he added.

"Always part of what I'm working on is to strengthen the squad and that people are able to come in because we've been to previous tournaments and lost important players and the focus is always on that rather than the collective".

"I think it's a matter that's completely out of my control really".

"Clearly the number one jersey is up for grabs".

"Well, we're all human beings and we're all effected by events around us and things that might distract us from our job", said Southgate. "I've done that and now it's down to me to repay him".
