Gareth Southgate has named England’s 26-man squad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
The squad was announced on Thursday afternoon, prior to the players’ arrival in camp on Monday morning, following this weekend’s domestic club matches.
Included are Jordan Henderson and Raheem Sterling, who will join the distinguished list of England players who have participated in three World Cups.
Southgate has selected a group with a mix of youth and experience, with 13 players set for their first World Cup and another three heading to their maiden senior major tournament, in Conor Gallagher, James Maddison and Callum Wilson – although Gallagher does have an Under-17 World Cup winner’s medal from 2017, when Phil Foden was also named the tournament’s best player.
England’s squad at the 2018 World Cup was the second-youngest in terms of average age, at 26 years old, and the Three Lions have named another young squad, with an average age of 26,4.
The manager of the Three Lions has named three goalkeepers, eight defenders, six midfielders, and eight forwards to his squad. However, it should be noted that players in each outfield section are capable of playing in multiple positions.
The England coaching staff will arrive at St. George’s Park on the weekend, followed by the players on Monday.
They will then fly to Qatar on Tuesday in advance of the Three Lions’ Group B opener against Iran at the Khalifa International Stadium on November 21. (kick-off 1pm GMT).
On Friday, November 25 at 7 p.m., England will face the United States at the Al Bayt Stadium, followed by a match against Wales on Tuesday, November 29 at the Ahmad bin Ali Stadium (kick-off 7pm).
The tournament begins on November 20 when hosts Qatar face Ecuador and concludes on December 18 with the championship match.
