England announce 23-man World Cup squad; 5 Liverpool, 4 Man United players, 3 Saints & 2 from Arsenal & Chelsea
- May 12, 2014
Roy Hodgson has announced his 23-man England squad for the World Cup, and there were few surprises in the party heading to Brazil.
The biggest omissions from the squad were arguably Chelsea’s retired international defenders John Terry and Ashley Cole; two players whom many believe should still be in the starting XI.
Manchester United’s Michael Carrick and Tom Cleverley were other noticeable Three Lions omissions.
In total there are four players from Liverpool, four Manchester United players, three from Southampton, two from Arsenal, champions Man City, Everton and Chelsea, and a player apiece from Celtic and West Brom.
England face Uruguay, Costa Rica and Italy in their World Cup group.
Without further ado, the England World Cup squad is as follows:
Goalkeepers: Joe Hart, Fraser Forster, Ben Foster.
Defenders: Glen Johnson, Phil Jones, Gary Cahill, Phil Jagielka, Chris Smalling, Leighton Baines, Luke Shaw.
Midfielders: Steven Gerrard, Jack Wilshere, Jordan Henderson, Frank Lampard, James Milner, Ross Barkley, Adam Lallana, Raheem Sterling, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Forwards: Wayne Rooney, Daniel Sturridge, Danny Welbeck, Rickie Lambert.
