Hart, Wilshere left out of England's World Cup squad

Hart, Wilshere left out of England's World Cup squad

The former England striker has urged Gareth Southgate, the national team manager, to include the likes of Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Ryan Sessegnon when he names his 23-man squad tomorrow.

There is also no place for Chelsea defender Gary Cahill, with Burnley centre-back James Tarkowski on standby for a spot in Russian Federation.

England boss Southgate is reported to have called the 75-cap goalkeeper on Monday to tell him he would not be in the squad, with uncapped Burnley shot-stopper Nick Pope getting the nod alongside Jordan Pickford and Jack Butland.

But sources have told ESPN FC that Southgate has chosen to make the selection on recent form rather than Hart's experience of major tournaments, leaving the keeper, capped 75 times, facing up to the end of his worldwide career.

Hart has been England's first-choice goalkeeper for the last three major tournaments - Euro 2012, the 2014 World Cup and Euro 2016, as well as the qualifiers for this summer's event - but he has only played in one of the past five games under Southgate.

However, Wilshere has started just 12 Premier League games this season at Arsenal and was not named in Arsene Wenger final two matches with of the campaign due to the birth of his child.

When asked about Hart and Wilshere last night, Southgate refused to be drawn on whether they have made a squad which will also reportedly be missing experienced defender Gary Cahill.
