Gareth Southgate has named England's 23-man squad for the World Cup and English fans are ambivalent about the team. While most of the selections are justified and are based on their current form, a few of them are just bemusing.

Here's the 23-man squad named by the England boss: Jack Butland, Pickford, Pope, Stones, Jones, Walker, Cahill, Rose, Maguire, Alexander-Arnold, Young, Trippier, Henderson, Dier, Alli, Lingard, Sterling, Delph, Loftus-Cheek, Kane, Vardy, Rashford, Welbeck.

Here are the 3 players who should have been selected:

#3 Gary Cahill

Gary Cahill is not the same as he was 2-3 years ago. He was rock solid at the back and was one of the main reasons why Chelsea won the Premier League title under Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte.

This season has been one of his worst ever and Chelsea fans have been asking their club to sell him off this summer. The Blues faithful are livid with their club captain for his mistakes at the back.

James Tarkowski should have been on the plane instead of him as he's been in terrific form. Chris Smalling has been bang average this season but is easily a better defender than Cahill in current form.
