The excitement for England’s World Cup campaign will increase as manager Gareth Southgate finalizes his roster to go to Qatar.

Southgate has less than half a Premier League season to review his players before making decisions, but are familiar with his options after six years on the job.

England reached their first semi-final since 1996 at the 2018 World Cup, before reaching their first final since 1966 when they lost to Italy on penalties at the European Championship last summer.

With a group that includes Wales, Iran and the United States waiting for them, many are tipping England to do even better.

Here’s everything you need to know about Southgate’s roster.

When will it be announced?

According to current plans, a preliminary roster will be designated on Friday, October 21. That is a month before the World Cup starts, although there is nothing stopping Southgate from naming his roster earlier. England will then hope and pray that players make it through the last few rounds of the Premier League unscathed.

The TSWT for final rosters is November 13, as confirmed by FIFA.

Who will be on the squad?

Goalkeepers Jordan Pickford, Aaron Ramsdale and Nick Pope are well established in the squad and will continue to do so with any dips in form or surprise package elsewhere. Pope will play Premier League football after moving to Newcastle.

On the defensive line, Southgate is likely to select if the condition allows: Kyle Walker, Kieran Trippier, John Stones, Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw.

England are blessed with right-back talent, and there may be room for both Trent-Alexander Arnold and Reece James, but you could be missing out if Luke Chilwell is chosen as a second specialist left-back. James Justin and Tyrick Mitchell are both capped and are more defensive profiles.
