The Biggest Omissions From England's 2022 World Cup Squad

The Biggest Omissions From England's 2022 World Cup Squad

FR Stories

Gareth Southgate announced the 26 players he is taking to Qatar for the 2022 World Cup - the squad who will battle it out on the biggest stage of all for their country.

England boss raised a few eyebrows with some of his choices, such as the inclusions of Conor Coady and Conor Gallagher.

Fikayo Tomori

Southgate's latest omission of Tomori from the Three Lions camp was infuriating rather than surprising.

Marc Guehi

The Crystal Palace skipper was an unutilised member of the September camp and, with Coady's inclusion in the World Cup squad, has been left at home.

James Ward-Prowse

The ever-so-slightly questionable inclusions of Kalvin Phillips and Jack Wilshere left no room for the Southampton skipper who would have been a surprise omission.

Jarrod Bowen

After not playing a minute during the September internationals, Bowen has been left out altogether this time around.

Tammy Abraham

Southgate highlighted that drop off and has elected to take just one out-and-out striker to deputise for Harry Kane.

Ivan Toney

Will not be going to Qatar due to injury.

Other notable omissions

James Tarkowski might feel hard-done-by to not be going to the World Cup.

Luke Shaw represents England's only left-sided defensive option after Ben Chilwell was sadly ruled out by injury prior to the tournament.

Ward-Prowse is certainly the biggest absentee from the midfield contingent in the Three Lions squad.
