England squad announced, with Arsenal and Liverpool fans shocked by key Gareth Southgate calls

The latest England squad has been released.

Gareth Southgate has named his latest England squad, with Arsenal and Liverpool fans taking to Twitter to express their rage at some high-profile omissions.

Reds duo Daniel Sturridge and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have been overlooked by Southgate due to not playing regularly for Jurgen Klopp’s side, and the England boss admitted Arsenal star Wilshere is out of the reckoning for the same reason.

Still, Wilshere remains a squad player at Arsenal, and Southgate said: ‘I don’t know how you get in an England squad if you’re not in the Arsenal team.’

The 25-year-old Gunners midfielder has had some decent cameos in Arsene Wenger’s side of late, but still seemingly not enough regular football to be considered for an international recall.

Usual suspects such as Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling are in, while surprise call-ups come to Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Tammy Abraham and a return after a four-year absence for Ashley Young.

Still, with club loyalties so strong these days, fans of Liverpool and Arsenal have been beside themselves with anger at seeing their heroes snubbed for England’s upcoming friendlies against Germany and Brazil.
