Jack Wilshere 'confirms' England World Cup snub by accepting holiday offer


"Just write it off, we haven't realistically got a chance, you never know what might happen in tournament football, but we haven't now enough world-class players".

Southgate called Wilshere up to his squad for the recent friendlies against the Netherlands and Italy, but injury forced him to pull out. [Southgate should] choose his squad, have back-up and let those players go on holiday and know whether they're in or they're out.

Manchester City's versatile Fabian Delph is said to have been included by Southgate, along with Tottenham defender Danny Rose and Manchester United wing-back Ashley Young, while Burnley centre-back James Tarkowski could be part of the group on standby.

Hart was expected to travel to Russian Federation as Jordan Pickford and Jack Butland's back-up, but his absence will mean Burnley keeper Nick Pope will have his chance to shine on the biggest of all stages.

It is claimed Wilshere, who spent the majority of last season on loan at Bournemouth, has struggled to keep pace in some of Southgate's training sessions.

But word has already got out of two big name omissions: Joe Hart and Jack Wilshere.

Newcastle midfielder Jonjo Shelvey is also expected to miss out on selection, with doubts over his temperament and concerns over his disciplinary record.

The squad will be drawn from the privately submitted long list of 35 handed to Federation Internationale de Football Association.

Liverpool's players will get similar respite after the Champions League final against Real Madrid.

Despite all the clamour around who might be on the plane to Russia, Southgate is relishing the opportunity to test his coaching abilities on the grandest stage of all.
