Gareth Southgate today confirmed the 23 players that would be jetting off to Russia in June, and neither Lascelles or Shelvey will form a part of his squad.

Neither player features on the Three Lions' standby list either, as Southgate named an additional five players who will form part of England's preparations for the tournament.

Both Newcastle players were considered outside bets for a call-up after impressive seasons at club level, but have been overlooked in a squad which contains very few surprises.

A call-up would have seen a first senior opportunity for Lascelles who has previously impressed at Under-21 level, while Shelvey could have added to his previous six caps.

England take on Belgium, Tunisia and Panama in the group stage of the competition, which kicks-off on June 14.
