Rashford and White ‘set to be named in England’s 26-man World Cup squad but Southgate to snub Sancho and Maddison’

GARETH SOUTHGATE is reportedly set to include Marcus Rashford and Ben White in his 26-man England squad.

But it’s claimed both James Maddison and Jadon Sancho are both set for World Cup heartbreak.

Three Lions gaffer Southgate will announce his squad for Qatar on Thursday, with England’s first game less than two weeks away.

And Manchester United star Rashford will be IN, according to the Guardian.

The 25-year-old has not featured for Southgate since the Euros, but a stunning start to life under Erik ten Hag has seen the forward force himself back into international contention.

Elsewhere the Guardian say Arsenal defender Ben White is set to replace the devastated Reece James, who has confirmed he will be missing the tournament, in the squad.

White has excelled at right-back for the Gunners this season, helping Mikel Arteta’s side to the top of the Premier League.

Maddison on the other hand is set for heartbreak.

The Leicester playmaker has scored six goals and provided four assists in 12 Prem games this season, but is not reportedly deemed worthy of a seat on the plane.

The same can be said for Sancho, although the United man has not reached the same heights as Maddison this term.


While James is set to miss out through injury, the Guardian claim Kyle Walker will be included.

The Manchester City defender is expected to be on the plane, despite not playing since undergoing groin surgery last month.

His City team-mate, Kalvin Phillips, had shoulder surgery in September and has been sidelined ever since, but is also likely to be in the squad.

Up front, the understudy to Harry Kane has been a hot topic of debate.

Brentford striker Ivan Toney and Roma ace Tammy Abraham are waiting nervously on their inclusion, according to the Telegraph.

Newcastle striker Callum Wilson, who has scored six goals in 10 Prem games this season, could be called up instead.

At the back, White’s inclusion could make it a shootout between Fikayo Tomori and Marc Guehi for the final defender spot.

While in the middle, Chelsea pair Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Conor Gallagher are both reportedly set to miss out.
