There are four goalkeepers all hoping for a place in the England World Cup squad. Joe Hart, Jordan Pickford, Jack Butland and Nick Pope are on the shortlist. But there is space for just three keepers on the plane to Russia. Joe Hart has featured heavily in the England squad for the last 6 years, the are many comments that Joe Hart should not go to Russia as he fumbles with the ball, but he has a lot of experience in the big stage.
Jack Butland 1/25
Jordan Pickford 1/33
Joe Hart 4/9
Nick Pope 7/4
James Tarkowski is a new addition to the squad. The 25-year-old has helped Burnley keep one of the best defensive records in the Premier League this season. According to the Sky Sports Power Rankings, he is the second-best performing English defender in the division after Walker.

Southgate has plenty of options to choose from in the forward areas, with Raheem Sterling’s renaissance at Manchester City guaranteeing him a place as the Three Lions cling to the hope that his standards can be maintained through to the summer. Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford will also make the trip as a versatile option who possesses the pace to trouble the very best in the business, while Tottenham’s Harry Kane is arguably the finest striker on the planet and should skipper the team in Russia.
