England World Cup squad named

Published

ENGLAND omitted Joe Hart and Jack Wilshere from its World Cup squad on Wednesday and called up Trent Alexander-Arnold to cap a remarkable breakthrough season for the 19-year-old right back.

England coach Gareth Southgate stuck to his principles and selected a young, energetic and flexible group of 23 players who can fit a variety of formations but will be short of experience at major tournaments.

Hart was England’s first-choice goalkeeper at the last World Cup and the two most recent European Championships, and was Southgate’s No. 1 only five months ago.

However, he has fallen behind Jordan Pickford, Jack Butland and Nick Pope after making errors and losing his place during a loan spell at West Ham from Manchester City.

FORMER UEFA president Michel Platini called on FIFA to lift his ban over a $1.8million (AU$2.8 million) payment after Swiss prosecutors said on Saturday they had found no evidence so far to bring charges against him.

Platini’s lawyer Vincent Solari claimed the former head of European football was now in the clear.

“There are no charges, he will not be prosecuted,” said Solari.

Platini said he had been vindicated after having “a lot thrown at me”, and called on FIFA to now end his exile from football.

“I hope that FIFA will have the courage and the decency to lift my suspension,” said the former France midfielder.
