With the World Cup less than a month away the England squad will be announced tomorrow!
Many people will have their different thoughts and opinions but if I was Southgate, this would be my 23 man squad for this summer:
Goalkeepers – Pickford, Butland, Pope
Defenders – Walker, Trippier, Alexander-Arnold, Stones, Jones, Cahill, Maguire, Young, Delph
Midfielders – Dier, Henderson, Wilshere, Lingard, Alli, Lallana, Sterling
Forwards – Kane, Vardy, Rashford, Welbeck
This wasn’t an easy choice at all and I wouldn’t be surprised if Southgate’s team was far from this. Welbeck will be an unpopular choice I know and he probably won’t make it but I think he would be a good squad player (no Arsenal bias I promise!)
I know players such as Shelvey and Loftus-Cheek are popular with many fans but they don’t get in for me. Will Southgate take a chance on them though?
Will Milner return from retirement after such a good season with Liverpool? If so then he would probably make my team instead of someone.
The Ox would have made my team if he wasn’t injured and there could be more injuries to come so who knows what the team will look like in the end.
I reckon Southgate will go for youth more than experience, for example Pope instead of Hart and this should help us in tournaments to come.
So who will Southgate pick? Do you agree with my team? What changes would you make?
