OFFICIAL: Rice IN But Bowen Misses Out As England’s World Cup Squad Is Announced

West Ham captain Declan Rice has been included in England’s squad for the World Cup. The 23-year-old was always likely to be selected by manager Gareth Southgate, who has started him regularly in recent internationals.

There is no place for Jarrod Bowen, though, which won’t come as a surprise to many Hammers fans, with the winger having struggled for form in recent months.

In terms of the rest of the 26-man squad, Arsenal’s Ben White, Leicester’s James Maddison and Newcastle’s Callum Wilson have been rewarded after their strong starts to the season, but Southampton’s James Ward-Prowse, AC Milan’s Fikayo Tomori, Roma’s Tammy Abraham, Brentford’s Toney and Crystal Palace’s Marc Guehi have all missed the plane.



Here is the squad in full:

Goalkeepers: Jordan Pickford (Everton), Nick Pope (Newcastle), Aaron Ramsdale (Arsenal)

Defenders: Kieran Trippier (Newcastle), Kyle Walker (Manchester City), Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Harry Maguire (Manchester United), Ben White (Arsenal), John Stones (Manchester City), Conor Coady (Everton), Eric Dier (Tottenham), Luke Shaw (Manchester United)

Midfielders: Declan Rice (West Ham), Jude Bellingham (Borussia Dortmund), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Mason Mount (Chelsea), Kalvin Phillips (Manchester City), Conor Gallagher (Chelsea)

Forwards: Harry Kane (Tottenham), Marcus Rashford (Manchester United), Bukayo Saka (Arsenal), Phil Foden (Manchester City), Raheem Sterling (Chelsea), Jack Grealish (Manchester City), Callum Wilson (Newcastle), James Maddison (Leicester)
