Joe Hart dropped from England’s World Cup squad


England coach Gareth Southgate has dropped goalkeeper Joe Hart from the squad going to Russia for the 2018 World Cup.

Southgate gave the news to the 31-year-old West Ham goalkeeper on Monday.

Reports say Hart, who has 75 caps for the Three Lions, was hoping to mKe the team as a third choice behind Jordan Pickford and Jack Butland. But Burnley’s Nick Pope was chosen as the team’s third keeper.

Southgate had previously decided to make Hart part of his 23-man World Cup squad but the goalkeeper lost his place at West Ham at the end of the season, forcing the coach to review his decision.
