Gareth Southgate is expected to omit Joe Hart from his 23-man World Cup squad and take inexperienced keepers Jack Butland, Jordan Pickford and Tom Pope to Russia.

Jack Wilshere is reported to be another high profile omission but there is likely to be better news for Fabian Delph, whose versatility may earn him a seat on plane.

The battle for the goalkeeper's jersey looks set to be between Pickford and Butland.

Pickford is the 1-4 favourite with Sky Bet to start England's first game against Tunisia, while Butland is a 10-3 chance.
