9 Premier League footballers who could break into the England squad ahead of the 2022 World Cup
The 2022 FIFA World Cup is in Qatar and starts in November, giving players plenty of time to prove their worth to England manager Gareth Southgate.
With England’s first international friendlies in nine months approaching, Gareth Southgate is preparing to use the time with the national team to test out the youth players who have broken onto the scene in recent seasons.
Kyle Walker-Peters, Tyrick Mitchell, Marc Guehi and Conor Gallagher will all be handed the opportunity to impress the England boss as they look to make their way into his plans for the 2022 World Cup.
However, missing out on the current squad doesn’t mean you won’t be on the plane to Qatar in eight months.
There are a large number of young prospects who have shone for their clubs this season and will be hoping to continue it for the remainder of the year, while Southgate prepares to pick the squad that will look to bring home the World Cup.
Here are nine English youngsters that could break into the senior team ahead of November’s tournament.
