Manchester City outcast Joe Hart has been told he will not be part of England's squad to the World Cup in Russian Federation, according to Sky Sports. Such is the case of England where every position has more than four good players.
The 31 year-old's probable omission from the England squad is not altogether surprising, but certainly welcome, with Southgate seemingly choosing players in form, rather than by name and previous pedigree.
England last year won both the under-20 and under-17 versions of the World Cup, and Lineker said there is "no question" that the national team will be challenging for senior titles in the coming years.
Doubts over his possible selection have also intensified due to the impressive performances of Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope, Everton's Jordan Pickford and Stoke's Jack Butland, and it now appears that Hart himself has had the news confirmed to him.
Pope has been sensational since making his Premier League debut after Tom Heaton picked up an injury.
