The 2018 World Cup starts on June 14th. And England under Gareth Southgate’s management, qualified comfortably.
The question on most fans lips is, who will Southgate pick in his squad?
Here I have compiled a list of potential ‘surprise’ additions to the squad.
1) Glenn Murray (Brighton)
The 34-year-old has scored 14 goals in all competitions for The Seagulls this season, and though he is ageing, his ability to find the net still remains.
Will Murray feature in Southgate’s squad come June?
2) Marc Albrighton (Leicester)
The 28-year-old has assisted his teammates on seven occasions this season, as well as scoring twice himself. The former Premier League Champion will be looking to add a few more assists & goals to his tally in The Foxes remaining four game.

3) Aaron Cresswell (West Ham)
The 28-year-old has assisted his teammates on seven occasion so far. The left-back position in Southgate’s squad is definitely one that has several contenders. Cresswell is doing his up most in order to be in contention for a place.

4) Ben Foster (West Brom)
Another potential ‘surprise’ is the experienced Ben Foster. The 35-year-old may be sitting bottom of the league with The Baggies, but he has eight clean-sheets to his name, that is double the amount of ‘England’s number one’ Joe Hart. The number one shirt is another position that is definitely up for debate between fans.
Will Foster feature in Southgate’s squad come June?
5) Ryan Sessegnon (Fulham)
What a season this lad is having. At only 17, the versatile Cottager has scored 15 goals & assisted his teammates 6 times this season. A player linked with several ‘top’ Premier League clubs, Sessegnon’s performances this season can surely not go unmissed?
Will Sessegnon feature in Southgate’s squad come June?
These are just five names that could ‘surprise’ fans when Southgate picks his squad. Who do you think will feature in his squad? And do you think we the fans are in for some surprise additions?
