Goalkeeper Joe Hart and midfielder Jack Wilshere have been left out of England’s World Cup squad by Gareth Southgate, BBC Sport has learned.

Hart, 31, who has won 75 caps, has had a poor season, conceding 39 goals in 19 Premier League games for West Ham – on loan from Manchester City.

Arsenal’s 26-year-old Wilshere, who has had an injury-plagued career, managed 38 appearances this season. Southgate reveals his 23-man squad for the tournament in Russia on Wednesday.

Hart has been England’s first-choice goalkeeper for the last three major tournaments – Euro 2012, the 2014 World Cup and Euro 2016, as well as the qualifiers for this summer’s event – but he has only played in one of the past five games under Southgate.

Everton’s Jordan Pickford is likely to be England’s number one this summer, with Stoke City’s Jack Butland also a contender.
