Thirty-goal striker Harry Kane, full-back Danny Rose and Dele Alli are among those to secure a place from Mauricio Pochettino's side, while Anfield provides Jordan Henderson and uncapped 19-year-old right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold.

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

Manchester City's Kyle Walker, John Stones, Fabien Delph and Raheem Sterling and, Manchester United's Phil Jones, Ashley Young, Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford have all been named in Gareth Southgate's squad of 23 for the World Cup Finals in Russian Federation next month. This is essentially Gareth Southgate and the Philosopher's Stone.

Meanwhile, England's three keepers for Russian Federation 2018 - Jack Butland, Jordan Pickford and the uncapped Nick Pope - have won just nine caps between them, while midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has made just two Three Lions appearances.

■ 2 - England World Cup squads have been younger than Southgate's, which has an average age of 26 years and 18 days.

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.

Burnley's James Tarkowski had to make do with a stand-by spot despite an impressive season where the Clarets qualified for the Europa League.

Political sources told AFP that two meetings have been held under Iranian guidance to bring together several political blocs. The final vote count is yet to be completed before confirming the final make-up of Iraq's new 329-seat parliament.


Rashford was named in the squad along with Manchester United teammates Phil Jones, Jesse Lingard and Ashley Young. The Football Association released a video of youngsters from all over the country announcing each player in the squad.

"I'm not sure Joe would have been expecting to be picked but he would have thought if he could have forced his way back into the West Ham team he would have had a better chance". As of last night, that comment had 1,500 likes and counting.

It is a group full of promise rather than experience, with plenty of big-name players overlooked. "On England's behalf, it was nice of them to let the manager tell me".

GARETH SOUTHGATE, England manager, when asked what he would define as a successful World Cup.

"History tells us that one of those standby players may end up in the squad, as it's very unusual for us to get through the end of the season and our two preparation games without any issues", Southgate added. "They're both good guys and have contributed a lot throughout qualification, so it wasn't an enjoyable part of the job and I feel it's important to acknowledge their contribution in getting us to Russian Federation".

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.
