Ashley Young followed suit shortly after, proving that donning an England strip at a World Cup is a dream he's been harbouring for a fair old while... Their respective scores blow England's out of the water, though it is worth taking into account the number of players representing the respective nations in England's top tier. He scored twice and provided an assist in a 3-2 win over the Arsenal at Old Trafford.

The 23-man England squad was announced by video on Wednesday afternoon, with five other players also named on a standby list.

Trent Alexander-Arnold's "unbelievable journey" Can Southgate uncover England's creative edge?

Alexander-Arnold has impressed for Liverpool this season, particularly in the Reds' surge to the Champions League final.

Premier League champions Manchester City and runners-up Manchester United both have four representatives.

Manager Southgate has not set any concrete expectations for his team, telling ESPN: "I could sit here and say this round or that round - but it doesn't mean anything, really, because we have to keep improving as a team".

Facebook Removed 2.5 MILLION Pieces of 'Hate Speech' in Just Three Months
Hate speech: In Q1, the company took action on 2.5 million pieces of such content, up about 56% from 1.6 million during Q4. The report, released Tuesday, revealed how much content has been removed for violating standards.

Southgate named his 23-man squad on Wednesday and chose to omit Wilshere, who was also left off the five-man standby list for the upcoming tournament in Russian Federation.

When asked by BBC Sport which omitted player should have been in the squad, former Newcastle striker Shearer replied: "The only one I would have included myself is Jonjo Shelvey just to add something a bit different".

This is his first call up to the senior squad in global football's biggest competition.

"We're trying to change the style of play, we have our young players developing with better technical ability with the ball".

'The selection process has been over months really, it's not just been the last few weeks. This Belgian team, now ranked as the world's 3rd best side, remain in the midst of their "Golden Generation" as a seemingly never-ending conveyor belt of outrageously talented players continues whirring along. England's first match is against Tunisia on Monday June, 18, before group games against Panama and Belgium.

Southgate does not have to formally submit his squad list to Federation Internationale de Football Association until June 4.
