Joe Hart to be left out of England's World Cup squad

Joe Hart to be left out of England's World Cup squad

It is always the hope of every professional footballer to represent his or her country at the World highest stages such as the World Cup. Such is the case of England where every position has more than four good players.

Joe Hart has reportedly been told that he will not be included in Gareth Southgate's England squad for the summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

With 75 caps, Hart was expected to be the most experienced member of Southgate's travelling party, but his omission could leave England without a player boasting over 40 caps.

Doubts over his possible selection have also intensified due to the impressive performances of Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope, Everton's Jordan Pickford and Stoke's Jack Butland, and it now appears that Hart himself has had the news confirmed to him.

Pope has yet to be capped by England, having only made his Premier League debut last September following an injury to Burnley teammate and England global Tom Heaton.

With England manager Gareth Southgate set to announce his squad on Wednesday, Skysports reported that Hart who was England number one in the Euro 2016 Nations Cup was said not to be among the list of players for the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup as a third choice goalkeeper.
