Southgate Closes World Cup Gate On Wilshere

Southgate Closes World Cup Gate On Wilshere

He has endured an indifferent spell with West Ham this season, losing his place towards the end of November to Adrián and starting only 19 league games in total.

Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer believes that taking Jonjo Shelvey to the World Cup is less of a risk than selecting Jack Wilshere.

Burnley's Nick Pope, who was called up for the games against the Netherlands and Italy but remains uncapped, is the likeliest to replace Hart in the 23-man squad, which Southgate will reveal on Wednesday.

"In my eyes it's the right decision", former England defender Ferdinand told Press Association Sport at the BBC's launch of their World Cup coverage.

Gary Lineker has said England should "write off" this summer's World Cup and instead treat the tournament as an opportunity to provide global experience for the country's talented youngsters.

"It was always my wish and I think it will happen, yes". He has been to a World Cup before, he has played tournament football before.

Despite the 75-cap goalkeeper's struggles for form and game-time, Southgate spoke glowingly about his professionalism and leadership when third-fiddle to Jordan Pickford and Jack Butland in March's worldwide meet-up.

It is now being reported by the Guardian that Jack Wilshere is set to miss out too.
