TIM SHERWOOD has picked his dream England World Cup line up… with Raheem Sterling one of three regulars AXED from the XI.
The former Tottenham boss would have the 19-goal Three Lions forward on his bench.
Appearing on Arsenal stopper Aaron Ramsdale in his team ahead of Pickford.
Ramsdale has impressed between the sticks this season, helping the Gunners top the Premier League with nine wins from 10 games.
But Pickford is still likely to be Gareth Southgate’s first choice stopper.
That’s despite Grealish starting just three games in the Prem this campaign.
Sterling on the other hand has been a regular for Chelsea, and is one of the most experienced Three Lions in the squad.
Another shock omission is Arsenal starlet Bukayo Saka.

Sherwood doesn’t have the winger in his XI, despite the 21-year-old scoring four goals and providing four assists in just 10 Prem games this season.
Instead the Ex-Spurs gaffer would play Phil Foden off the right hand side, to fit in Grealish on the left.
Kieran Trippier is in at right-back, but Sherwood revealed he would pick Reece James if fit.
He also picked Luke Shaw over Ben Chilwell at left-back, and put Manchester City pair John Stones and Kyle Walker together in the heart of defence.
