Southgate has turned to the next generation in his bid to build a squad that can mount a serious challenge in future major tournaments, with Joe Hart omitted from the squad.

Gareth Southgate's 23-man England squad for the 2018 Fifa World Cup was announced today with Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold and Chelsea's Ruben Loftus-Cheek selected for a seat on the plane to Russian Federation.

Widespread reports on Tuesday revealed that Gareth Southgate had chose to leave West Ham goalkeeper Hart and Arsenal midfielder Wilshere at home, and there is indeed no place for either despite the pair having amassed more than 100 caps between them.

Burnley's Nick Pope joins Jordan Pickford of Everton and Stoke City's Jack Butland among Southgate's goalkeeping options.

"If I was Gareth Southgate I would sell this on youngsters", he said at the BBC's launch of their coverage of the tournament. We have got some great young players. Subscribe to our SMS sports service by texting "SPORTS" to 22840.

The English squad is dominated by players from the Premier League's top three - Tottenham (5), Manchester City (4), Manchester United (4).

"The first call up for Trent Alexander-Arnold is well deserved", Southgate said.

Leicester City defender Harry Maguire could be the subject of a summer bidding war, after returning from the World Cup in Russian Federation according to reports.

Wilshere fought his way back into the Arsenal first team this season after recovering from a leg fracture he sustained during his loan spell at Bournemouth in the 2016-17 campaign.

Notably, the uncapped Trent Alexander-Arnold, 19, and 22-year-old Ruben Loftus-Cheek (two caps) are included.

Manager Gareth Southgate says he will measure the success of England's World Cup campaign in Russian Federation by the development of younger players within his squad.

Manchester United's Ashley Young and Manchester City's Fabian Delph - who can both play a number of positions in defence and midfield - also get the call.

"We have a lot of energy and athleticism in the team but also players equally comfortable in possession".

Southgate's squad was always going to divide opinion.

With Hart's global days now apparently over after being his country's senior goalkeeper for the past three tournaments, Everton's Jordan Pickford is expected to start in goal in England's opening match against Tunisia on June 18.
