Younger players has less experience so it might be hard for a team with young player to rule the tournament. But in the view of Gary Lineker that England must be giving the youngsters to have experience and showcase their talents throughout the tournament.

According to Gary “If I was Gareth Southgate I would sell this on youngsters,” he said. “I’d say, ‘This is an experience’ I would totally take the pressure off them.

“I would say, ‘This is all about experience, we are not going to do particularly well, we are not going to win this World Cup’. I would play lots of these talented young players.

“Bring Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Ryan Sessegnon, bring the youngsters and give them that little bit of experience.”

The squad will be formally be announced at some point today once that Southgate is settled to his feels of the team he will be pursuing with, it might take a place and viewers will finally find out who will be playing for England but there are some rumors that it is greatly influenced by Linenker’s opinion about the teaming and his suggestion.

About the leakage of news that one of their old player Joe Hart’s omission was a sign that Southgate made the decision based on the opinion of Lineker of putting faith to the youth who are talented but with less experience.

Also, Southgate has been a huge fan of Ruben Loftus-Cheek and his return for the final eight had a huge impact on matches of Crystal Palace’s season will be a big help to prove that he must have a spot on the team. Officially announced teams will be part of World Cup highlights.


Personifying the England pretenders Alexander-Arnold has also been part as flag-bearer of Southgate because he wants players who are fearless, mature and unflappable. Experiencing a training with seniors was a big help for him to be able part of the senior team despite being under-21s.

According to Alan Shearer “What’s the point of leaving out a guy having a magnificent season, someone who could have a Champions League winner’s medal in two weeks’ time, who has been brought up through the system, he’s now doing extremely well – why wouldn’t you take him?”

“I think it’s a great opportunity to send a message out: ‘If you do it right, here’s the opportunity. It has worked for him, it can work for you’.

“We talk so much about the England youth teams, who have been hugely successful. What a carrot that would send out to the rest of them.” he added.

Adam Lallana have just made it to join the party because of being part for Loverpool’s final game of the season together with as injury rules our Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

“Let’s write this summer off, because we haven’t realistically got what it takes,” stated dismissively.

But added “You never known in a knockout competition – you can get lucky, get through a few things and have a bit of belief.”

“But we have not, at present, got the world-class players that you need. And you need half your team to be world class to be serious favourites in a competition like this.”

“We have not got that at the moment but we will have that in four or six years’ time. We have got so many young players who have been successful. In four years’ time we are going to be a serious force in world football – no question.” As his last statement incurring that he has faith on younger generation.
