FORMER Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has named his England team for their opening World Cup game against Iran.
Gareth Southgate’s side kick off their campaign on November 21, before two more group games against USA and Wales.
There has been much debate about whether Southgate will line up with a back three or four.
One of the most eye-catching calls from the ex-England star sees him go with Aaron Ramsdale ahead of regular No1 Jordan Pickford.
Wilshere opts instead to pair White with Tottenham man Eric Dier.
And he continues the somewhat left-field defence with Trent Alexander-Arnold at right-back.
The only uncontroversial choice in the defence is Luke Shaw at left-back.
Wilshere has gone with a 4-2-3-1 formation, picking Declan Rice and Jude Bellingham to sit in front of the defence.
Phil Foden has been chosen as the No10, with Bukayo Saka and Raheem Sterling either side of him.
And England captain Harry Kane is obviously leading the line in attack.
Wilshere earned 34 caps for England and played at the 2014 World Cup – which saw the Three Lions exit in the group stage.
Injuries hampered the end of his career and he was forced to retire in July at the age of just 30.
