Gareth Southgate on picking Jordan Pickford: “There is great competition for places, he has outstanding distribution which is a great asset in the way we want to play.”

England’s squad for the friendly in the Netherlands on Friday has an experimental look – but preparations for Russia 2018 are now entering the critical stage, with less than 90 days to the World Cup.

Who will play in goal?

As Joe Hart is no longer England’s first-choice goalkeeper, it is hardly the ideal situation that such a key position in Southgate’s team is still up for grabs.

And confusion over the goalkeeper at a major tournament rarely ends well, as Fabio Capello found out when he started with Robert Green in South Africa in 2010.

So with the World Cup now only weeks away, Southgate will surely be desperate for someone to make the concrete case to be number one.
