Gareth Southgate is set to announce his 23-man England squad for the World Cup tomorrow, and there will be a few big omissions.

Among those apparently left off the England roster are Joe Hart and Jack Wilshere. Both Hart and Wilshere were notified by the manager ahead of Wednesday's official squad announcement.

Without Hart, who was England's most experienced player, it appears Gareth Southgate will opt for a three-man unit of Jack Butland, Jordan Pickford, and newcomer Nick Pope in goal. As of recently, the 31-year-old Hart has witnessed his career take a step back after successive underwhelming loans to Torino and West Ham.

This season, the Manchester City product appeared in 19 Premier League matches, splitting the duties with Spaniard Adrian, and with a return to the Etihad Stadium unlikely, Hart's career is in footballing limbo.

At one point it was expected that Hart would travel to the World Cup to be the third choice, but due to his struggles at the club level it appears Southgate will go with Pope.

For Wilshere, injury concerns continue to plague a once-blossoming career. The Arsenal midfielder was on the outside looking in after a broken leg ended a shock season-long loan with Bournemouth, and since then, the 26-year-old has started just a dozen league matches. He hasn't played for England since Euro 2016.

Southgate expressed hesitation in recalling Wilshere to the England fold as a result of recurring injuries before the Stevenage-born Gunner was called up for a pair of friendlies, both of which he missed with an ankle knock. Taking Wilshere’s spot will be Manchester City’s Fabian Delph, according to multiple reports.

Swansea's Alfie Mawson will also not be included in Southgate's squad for the World Cup after he underwent successful knee surgery on Monday which will keep him out for between six weeks and two months.
