Hart, Wilshere miss out as England announce squad for 2018 World Cup

Trent Alexander Arnold was the surprise selection for England's World Cup squad

Defender Gary Cahill has been recalled and there are also places on the plane to Russian Federation for Chelsea team-mate Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope.

"Ryan is also very unfortunate in that it's probably one of the strongest positions we have", said Southgate, who selected Tottenham left-back Danny Rose.

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.

Not that it was ever in doubt, but Manchester City full-back Walker missed the news of his call-up when the England manager first tried to reach him. "Thank you for all your kind messages!" It elevates your skill factor. Can't wait to get going!

"It's an honour to be named in the England squad for the World Cup".

At the opposite end of the pitch England have exciting options with Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy having scored 50 league goals between them this season while Rashford offers blistering pace and power that can unsettle the best defences.

The World Cup starts on June 14. Reports suggested that Jonjo Shelvey might make the cut for the squad.

His central defenders consists of John Stones, Gary Cahill, Harry Maguire and Phil Jones, while leaving out Newcastle's in-form captain.

In midfield Wilshere's lack of a spot is the major surprise, with Southgate supposedly concerned by the Arsenal's proneness to injury, while the versatile Delph is given a berth as well as 22-year-old Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who impressed Southgate in a friendly against Germany last year. It's a dream come true!

"It's an honour", says Dele Alli. Can't wait for my first World Cup and to meet up with the lads. Can not wait to get out there and do the fans proud!

Trent, you're off to the World Cup.

While the England stars celebrate their call-up for the World Cup in Russian Federation, some fans were not happy with some of the players left out of the squad. Should Lascelles and Shelvey be on the plane to Russian Federation?

Trent Alexander-Arnold is 19, still lives with his mother, and was playing in Liverpool's reserve team this time a year ago.

Not a Danny Welbeck fan then?
