Joe Hart to be left out of England's World Cup squad

Joe Hart to be left out of England's World Cup squad

Gary Neville thinks England manager Gareth Southgate should be concerned about the form of the goalkeepers he has to choose from for the World Cup in Russian Federation.

England manager Gareth Southgate has told ESPN FC that the continued development of his team is more important than reaching a certain round of the World Cup.

His spell in Turin was defined by just five clean sheets in 37 appearances which included a nineteen-game streak of being unable to keep one, whereas this season he has managed just four for the Hammers.

His contract is set to run out this summer, with Serie A side AC Milan reportedly interested.

Everton's Jordan Pickford remains the favourite to be England's No.1 in Russian Federation.

The 31-year-old, who has won 75 caps, has had a poor season at club level, conceding 39 goals in 19 Premier League games for West Ham. Hart has no future at the Etihad Stadium and will meet City's hierarchy to ascertain his next move.

Meanwhile, Fabian Delph, Ashley Young, Phil Jones and Harry Maguire are expected to make the cut.

While the inclusion of Chelsea's Ruben Loftus-Cheek, so impressive on loan at Crystal Palace this season and on senior global debut against Germany last November, will not constitute a surprise, Delph's recall had been unanticipated despite his claiming he was "quietly confident" of selection. Delph's inclusion follows a season in which he has been successfully remodelled as a left-back at City by Pep Guardiola.

"If I was Gareth Southgate I would sell this on youngsters", Lineker said.

"Taking a young kid to go there and experience that I think is a much better way to go".
