Hart out of in England's World Cup squad for Russian Federation 2018

Gary Lineker has said England should "write off" this summer's World Cup and instead treat the tournament as an opportunity to provide worldwide experience for the country's talented youngsters.

Joe Hart has reportedly been left out of Gareth Southgate's 23-man squad that the England manager will take to the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer.

Southgate is understood to believe that Pope's form and ability outweigh Hart's experience, with the England manager placing little value on a player's involvement in major tournaments.

But sources have told ESPN FC that Southgate has chosen to make the selection on recent form rather than Hart's experience of major tournaments, leaving the keeper, capped 75 times, facing up to the end of his global career. To get the latest soccer news, text "SPORTS" to 22840.

Burnley's Nick Pope is expected to be the third-choice goalkeeper, with Stoke City's Jack Butland and Everton's Jordan Pickford battling to be number one.

With England manager Gareth Southgate set to announce his squad on Wednesday, Skysports reported that Hart who was England number one in the Euro 2016 Nations Cup was said not to be among the list of players for the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup as a third choice goalkeeper.
