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.

Also, the yen strengthened against other major currencies on safe-haven buying, clouding the prospects for Japanese exporters . Private consumption was flat on a quarterly basis, in line with expectations after adding 0.2% in the three months prior.

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.

Cano suffered a fractured fifth metacarpal in his right hand when he was struck by a pitch from Detroit's Blaine Hardy on Sunday. He is making $24 million this season, so the expected almost 50 percent of his 2018 pay is now going away with the suspension.

"Depends on what you consider a surprise I suppose", he said to Sky Sports News.

Hart is also furious at Southgate's decision and blames West Ham manager David Moyes for his failure to earn a place in the squad for Russian Federation.

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.
