World Cup 2018 Betting

England manager Gareth Southgate has gone with a youthful look for his World Cup squad which he announced on Wednesday. Southgate has put his trust in youngsters like Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold and Ruben Loftus-Cheek who has been out on loan at Crystal Palace from Chelsea this season.

The big notable omission from the squad is goalkeeper Joe Hart who has been left behind and not even included in the standby list. Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere who has had more injury problems this season, has been overlooked as well.

There appears to be plenty of useful energy and pace in the squad with the likes of Marcus Rashford, Raheem Sterling and Jesse Lingard.
