Nigerian fans mock Abraham after England's World Cup snub

Few Surprises in Gareth Southgate's England World Cup Squad

Only England's most optimistic fans will believe Gareth Southgate can lead his side to World Cup glory in Russian Federation this summer but by sticking to his beliefs and selecting a young squad, he will head east with the nation behind him.

Uncapped Liverpool right-back Alexander-Arnold, 19, has made just three appearances for England's U21s with this his first senior call-up.

The 31-year-old Hart struggled to keep his place at West Ham United this season where he is on loan from Manchester City.

That is for the future though and his first priority will be to make sure there is tangible progress in Russian Federation where England should progress into the knockout stages from a group comprising Tunisia, outsiders Panama and Belgium.

"He said to me, 'OK, good - you're in the squad!' On England's behalf, it was nice of them to let the manager tell me".

The English squad is dominated by players from the Premier League's top three - Tottenham (5), Manchester City (4), Manchester United (4).

"The first call up for Trent Alexander-Arnold is well deserved".

"Maybe there are other players a bit older... but we don't think we could win a World Cup with them in the future and would rather invest time and show belief in young players".

Malaysian politician Anwar Ibrahim released from prison after royal pardon
But Mr Anwar said he trusted the prime minister to pursue their shared reform agenda and had forgiven him for past transgressions. Anwar was released from prison following the consent of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to grant a pardon to him.

But he has only played in one of the past five games under Southgate.

"Ryan and Joe have played a lot over the last two years so they're not decisions we took lightly", said Southgate.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek caught the eye on his global debut against Germany in November and could emerge as a midfield force in Russian Federation, while the versatile Fabian Delph has proved a class act for Manchester City this season.

Wilshere fought his way back into the Arsenal first team this season after recovering from a leg fracture he sustained during his loan spell at Bournemouth in the 2016-17 campaign.

Liverpool teenager Trent Alexander-Arnold has continued a dream breakthrough season with a maiden global call-up ahead of next weekend's Champions League final against Real Madrid. Abraham was demoted to the England U-21 team, for the Three Lions last friendlies against Netherlands and Italy and his dip in form cause him his World Cup place.

Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy, Marcus Rashford, Sterling and Welbeck are England's attacking options.
