Jordan Pickford will most likely fill the role of number one at the World Cup. The Everton goalkeeper was in the 2018 World Cup, when England lost to Croatia in the semi-finals, and in the 2021 European Championship for the Three Lions.
There are some prominent names in defense in the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Harry Maguire and Kyle Walker, but it’s not 100% with Ben Chilwell and Reece James absent through injury.
The midfield, on the other hand, is brimming with talent. Phil Foden, Mason Mount, Jude Bellingham, Declan Rice – coach Gareth Southgate is spoiled for choice. Incidentally, Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund is the only Englishman who does not play in the domestic Premier League.
As far as the attack and the wing positions are concerned, the coach also has a large selection with a lot of quality with Raheem Sterling, Marcus Rashford, Jack Grealish, James Maddison and Co. Captain Harry Kane is definitely seeded though.
