Much as expected really. Anyone you'd have left out/brought in if you were picking the squad?

Goalkeepers: Jack Butland (Stoke), Jordan Pickford (Everton), Nick Pope (Burnley).

Defenders: Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Gary Cahill (Chelsea), Kyle Walker, John Stones (Manchester City), Harry Maguire (Leicester), Kieran Trippier, Danny Rose (Tottenham Hotspur), Phil Jones, Ashley Young (Manchester United), Fabian Delph (Manchester City).

Midfielders: Eric Dier, Dele Alli (both Tottenham Hotspur), Jesse Lingard (Manchester United), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Chelsea).

Forwards: Jamie Vardy (Leicester), Marcus Rashford (Manchester United), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City), Danny Welbeck (Arsenal) Harry Kane (Tottenham).

Standby: Tom Heaton, James Tarkowski (Burnley), Lewis Cook (Bournemouth), Jake Livermore (West Brom) and Adam Lallana (Liverpool).

Good to see Alexander-Arnold and Loftus-Cheek in there. I'd replace Welbeck with JJ Hooper though.

Also, I know he's only a standby, but Livermore?!

I expect to see us being beaten by a James Rodriguez strike in the last 16.

Looks heavy on defenders to me? Suppose Delph can play in midfield if needed, but that midfield looks threadbare to me. Loftus-Cheek doesn't have much experience of playing, never mind playing in the world's biggest tournament. Think i would have taken Shelvey and ditched a defender.

When i look at crucial areas of the squad, it doesn't look good enough to me. Central defence and central midfield looks vulnerable, but i'm not sure there are any better out there. If we get to the Belgium game needing something, i would be worried about our chances of progressing.

I’d have taken Wilshere, played 38 times this season which is the most for a long time and more than Ruben Loftus-Cheek has managed, and he’s played well in a struggling Arsenal side.


"Falls to Arnold... Arnold! That's it! Thats it! He's sealed it! Grimsby Town are back in the football league!!! Just a minute to go and Nathan Arnold makes it 3-1! Look at the scenes behind the goal! Look at the relief! The agony is finally over!!!"

I would have taken lallana , I know he has been injured this season but he is supposed to be fit now . Gives you extra movement and he was player of the tournament for England last time out
