 VITAL EXPERIENCE Ashley Young

Southgate does not have to formally submit his squad list to World Cup organisers Federation Internationale de Football Association until June 4.

"I believe this is a squad which we can be excited about", Southgate said.

GARETH SOUTHGATE, England manager, when asked what he would define as a successful World Cup.

He will be given little time to celebrate, with England set to take on Nigeria (June 2) and Costa Rica (June 7) before their World Cup opener against Tunisia (June 18) in Volgograd.

The squad will meet up on Monday at St. George's Park although players from FA Cup finalists Manchester United and Chelsea, and Champions League finalists Liverpool will not be present.

Southampton left back Bertrand, who has 19 caps, was one of his club's most consistent performers this season and has done little wrong when regularly selected by Southgate.

Manchester City, who became the first Premier League team to hit a century of points has four players, as do their cross-town rivals Manchester United.

Here are the best reactions from the players who made the cut - and one who didn't....

Few Surprises in Gareth Southgate's England World Cup Squad
Lineker says England should 'write off' World Cup

Not everyone is convinced that Lascelles is Three Lions quality, and he can prove his doubters wrong next season.

Midfielders: Eric Dier, Dele Alli (both Tottenham), Jesse Lingard (Man United), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Fabian Delph (Man City), Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Chelsea).

ENGLAND SQUAD: Goalkeepers: Jack Butland (Stoke), Jordan Pickford (Everton), Nick Pope (Burnley).

"Everyone who has played a part, I just want to say thanks to them because without them, I wouldn't be where I am or who I am today".

Southgate is an avowed fan of the versatile midfielder but left him among the five standby players after he was confined to a solitary Premier League start all season.

"It's just a wonderful little piece more which makes this season special, even before the last game [against Real Madrid]".

"Maybe this picture said I was gonna live my dream and go to a World Cup... dreams do come true", he wrote.

England will play two friendlies against Nigeria (June 2) and Costa Rica (June 7) before flying to Russian Federation for the tournament on June 12.
