Gareth Southgate has announced his 26-man England squad for World Cup in Qatar.
Big names missed out, surprised ones got in
As usual, Harry Kane will lead the Three Lions, with the goals to better their previous competitions at Euro 2021 and World Cup 2018.
Meanwhile, James Maddison finally got the call despite not winning an international cap since 2019. Chelsea’s midfielder Conor Gallagher also in.
The likes of Ward-Prowse, Fikayo Tomori and Marc Guehi have all been overlooked and the fans are not happy.
Tomori played an important role in AC Milan’s Serie A 21-22 trophy and has been on form since. England fans disagree with Manchester United’s Harry Maguire picked over the Rossoneri’s man.
Manchester City’s Kyle Walker got the call despite being in recovering period since his groin surgery few months ago, while Reece James did not make the list.
The full-back cases
Chelsea’s Reece James tried his best in the race against time before the squad announcement, which he failed eventually.
James was left “devastated” after getting a call from Southgate on Wednesday explaining why he had missed out on a place in his 26-man squad, the recovery from a recent knee injury meaning there was no room for him in Qatar.
