Gareth Southgate gave his list of the 23 players he will take with him to Russia for the next World Cup, leaving out some great players with whom we have tried to form a very competitive team.
West Ham goalkeeper, loaned by Manchester City, has completely disappeared from the radar of the national team despite its 75 international meetings to his credit.
The versatile defenseman, Newcastle captain, is a key player in his team’s play pattern. His very good year under the orders of Benitez will not be enough to attract the eye of the coach.
The strong Manchester United defender will also not travel to Russia to represent his country. After a rather good season, during which he played 45 matches, Smalling will have to watch the World Cup in front of his television.
Leader of the defense of the surprise team of Premier League. As a result, he was elected in the eleven of the season in the Premier League. He managed to take his team to a qualification to Europe. He is not in the 23, however he is one of the reservists in case of injuries or absences at his post.
He made many rallies with the young English selections, but his bad relationship with Mourinho and the injuries did not allow him to accumulate a lot of minutes this season.
The Southampton southpaw is an undisputed tenor for Mark Hughes, playing 40 games this season and scoring four goals. However, his performance was not enough to convince Southgate.
The Newcastle player has the qualities and the ability to animate the midfield. His bad reputation may have left him off the list.
Probably the most important absence. The midfielder was all of a globalist, but his injury with Liverpool in the Champions League destroyed his dream of Mondial.
Nobody doubts the quality of Jack Wilshere, probably the most classy player in the Premier League. Mias his long wounds played against him. He hardly returned as holder with Arsenal that the list arrived, insufficient.
Another player marked by the injuries and who should have been present if he had not been injured. Unfortunately, he did not return on time.
The fast forward Everton had already been left out at the 2010 World Cup, but also that of 2014. In Everton he has returned to the front of the stage but has not detached enough to claim a place in the 23 .
