Tottenham’s Kyle Walker has reportedly joined Chelsea’s Ashley Cole in the ‘not going to Brazil’ club.
The Spurs full back has been out injured recently, hampering his chances of making Roy Hodgson’s England squad even further.
There were mixed feelings on Twitter as the news broke.
Liverpool’s Glen Johnson could well be the only traditional right back, with one or both of Smalling and Jones likely to provide back-up.
If Kyle Walker isn't going then surely Jenkinson could be getting called up? And I really hope Gibbs gets called up. So under rated.

Gutted for Walker, who was having a very good season before injury struck. On the plus side, at least he'll be well rested for next season.

If Kyle walker has been left out the squad Nathaniel Clyne is a must to replace him, not having any of this shit that Smalling is a fullback

Walker has had a poor second half of the season! Don't blame Roy leaving him out

"Sorry about the mix-up Kyle, you're on the plane. Seamus Coleman isn't English apparently." – Roy Hodgson to Kyle Walker tomorrow evening.
