  • When the England World Cup squad will be announced and odds on players making it to Russia

Notable omissions include midfielder Jack Wilshere and goalkeeper Joe Hart.

He is the only Chelsea player in the travelling party to Russian Federation besides Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who has enjoyed an impressive season on loan at Crystal Palace, with Southgate opting for a strong Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur contingent.

This is a young and pretty inexperienced squad, but one with plenty of pace and if Gareth Southgate can keep things simple (signs suggest he will) and play to the team's strengths this team could reach the quarter finals and give something for the England supporters to cheer about.

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

Writing for the Daily Mirror, Jack Rathborn says Southgate had some "controversial decisions" to make: "Southgate made a number of tough calls this week and notified experienced duo Joe Hart and Jack Wilshere, who have 109 caps between them, that they had missed out".

England manager Gareth Southgate on his England squad: "I believe this is a squad which we can be excited about", he said.

Liverpool and Chelsea youngsters Trent Alexander-Arnold and Ruben Loftus-Cheek were perhaps the most surprising admissions, while Blues defender Gary Cahill and Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck were fortunate to get call-ups following their inconsistent performances in the Premier League.

The tablets will probably be about 20 percent lighter than the high-end models, but will have four hours fewer of battery life. Hopefully, the tech giant will be able to introduce some product diversification if the latest rumor turns out to be true.

"We've also had a couple of injuries with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Joe Gomez, which is a huge blow for them personally and disappointing for us".

World Champions-1966 1990-beyond the quarterfinals at broke.

Central midfield seems light on experience and cover - Jordan Henderson and Eric Dier are the only real mainstays - but Southgate is confident the likes of Loftus-Cheek and Jesse Lingard can fill in.

It is expected that Everton's Jordan Pickford will be England's main goalkeeper, although Jack Butland from Stoke City will provide strong competition.

Goalkeepers, Butland, Pickford and Pope have combined 9 caps between them.

"The selection process has been over months really, it's not just been the last few weeks". The squad face warm-up matches with Nigeria (a match to be covered by the Yellow Advertiser) and Costa Rica at Wembley Stadium and Elland Road ahead of the tournament, with their first match at the finals against Tunisia to be staged in the Volgograd Arena on June 18.

Tom Heaton, James Tarkowski, Lewis Cook, Jake Livermore and Adam Lallana have been named on Southgate's standby list.
