The ups and downs of an England squad announcement

The ups and downs of an England squad announcement

Manchester's City's goalkeeper Joe Hart reacts after their Champions League soccer match against CSKA Moscow at the Etihad stadium in Manchester, northern England November 5, 2014.

Southgate broke with convention by declining to name a provisional 30-man squad, opting instead to select his preferred 23 well before Fifa's June 4 deadline. Only two players are over the age of 30, and only one player has more than 38 caps.

Alexander-Arnold has all that, and more.

Goalkeepers: Jack Butland (Stoke City), Jordan Pickford (Everton), Nick Pope (Burnley).

Here are five things we learned from Southgate's squad selection.

Nigerian fans have mocked Tammy Abraham after the Chelsea wonderkid snubbed from England's 23-man squad for the upcoming FIFA World Cup squad announced on Wednesday.

However, a knee problem ruled him out of England's March friendlies against Holland and Italy and a final chance to impress Southgate, who plumped for Ruben Loftus-Cheek alongside his regular midfielders after the Chelsea youngster impressed on loan at Crystal Palace.

It had nothing to do with 'Roseanne " that we were interested in the show in the first place. "Oh, shit, I said 'ass'". This strategy would work best with a non-serialized show that doesn't have much of a barrier to entry for new viewers.

Trent Alexander-Arnold makes the team, but will likely be the third choice right-back behind Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier.

Joe Hart is reportedly incensed with West Ham manager David Moyes for omitting him in the club's final three games of the season, as his lack of playing time has resulted in his axe from England's World Cup squad. Harry Kane, Sterling, Rashford, Welbeck and Vardy will be competing for spots to lead the English forward line.

"We have a lot of energy and athleticism in the team but also players equally comfortable in possession".

Ruben Loftus-Cheek caught the eye on his global debut against Germany in November and could emerge as a midfield force in Russian Federation, while the versatile Fabian Delph has proved a class act for Manchester City this season.

The attacking midfielder is a favourite of Southgate yet managing just one Premier League start in an injury-disrupted season means the 30-year-old had to settle with a stand-by place alongside former Hull City midfielder Jake Livermore, Burnley pair Tom Heaton and James Tarkowski, and ex-Leeds United midfielder Lewis Cook.

Manchester United's Ashley Young and Manchester City's Fabian Delph - who can both play a number of positions in defence and midfield - also get the call.

England kick-off their group stage campaign against Tunisia in Volgograd on at 7pm on 18 June, before facing Panama on 24 June and Belgium on 28 June.
