Gareth Southgate will name his England squad for this summer’s World Cup on Wednesday, with Manchester City expected to have four members of its double-winning squad included.
The four City-owned players tipped to go to the World Cup had been John Stones, Kyle Walker, Raheem Sterling and Joe Hart – but news broke today that Hart is being left out after an indifferent loan spell at West Ham, with Burnley’s Nick Pope in.
Further news then followed of Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere being left out. And his replacement is now widely expected to be Fabian Delph, who had enjoyed a fine season as a makeshift left-back under Pep Guardiola and will be able to cover both that position and central midfield for Southgate.
Gabriel Jesus, Fernandinho, Ederson and Danilo have already made Brazil’s 23-man squad, while Leroy Sané and İlkay Gündoğan are on Germany’s longlist and expected to make the final 23, as is Bernardo Silva, who is on Portugal’s extended squad list which will be whittled down shortly.
