England manager Gareth Southgate has declared his 26-man squad for the Qatar World Cup. Captain Harry Kane will lead the Three Lions. Again, the selections of Raheem Sterling, Declan Rice, and Jordan Pickford were all prominent picks after England’s race to the Euro 2020 final last summer.
Qatar World Cup squad for England: Who is missing out?
Many regular players like Kyle Walker and Kalvin Philips have come out of fitness issues to be a part of the World Cup squad. However, Reece James and Ben Chilwell couldn’t be included due to injury. The in-form trio of Ben White, James Maddison, and Callum Wilson have all got the calls to the national team just right on time.
That indicates some major omissions from the World Cup final squad at the last moment. Here’s the list of the major exclusions in the upcoming event.
Tammy Abraham: Abraham could have been a must-name in the squad. He seemed to be a decent pick until the start of the season but Wilson hasn’t considered him owing to his Premier League form. Last season, he was brilliant scoring 27 goals but in the current campaign, it’s just 4. A lack of minutes for England in 2022, wasn’t of great help as well.
Tomori: Tomori, Serie A title winner with AC Milan last year, would be disappointed in not securing a place in the final squad. He got his first call in 2019 but hasn’t been able to make a place in the squad and was excluded from June’s Nations League matches. In the Champions League group stages his performance for AC Milan against Chelsea was poor.
Marc Guehi misses out too with Eric Dier and Conor Coady getting the call.
