Trent Alexander-Arnold, Danny Rose and Ashley Young are all expected to be included in Gareth Southgate's 23-man England squad for the World Cup, according to Sky sources.

Southgate will name his squad for the upcoming tournament on Wednesday afternoon, which is live across all Sky Sports News platforms.

Fabian Delph is also understood to be in there while West Brom's Jake Livermore will be on the standby list to cover for Jordan Henderson and Eric Dier in midfield.

Sky Sports News expects Jordan Pickford, Jack Butland and Nick Pope to be named as the three goalkeepers, while Kieran Trippier, Kyle Walker and John Stones are certain to among the defenders.

Raheem Sterling, Dele Alli and Jesse Lingard are expected to be among the forwards, with Harry Kane a shoe-in as first-choice striker.

Jack Wilshere and Joe Hart are not in the squad for June and July and there is uncertainty that they would be willing to be named as standby players under these circumstances/

A source has told Sky Sports News that Fulham wonder-kid Ryan Sessegnon has not had a call about the senior squad but it is not out of the realms of possibility that he is named as a standby, alongside youngsters such as Ben Chilwell and Jadon Sancho.
