Gareth Southgate: 'Gary Cahill needs to be playing'

Jack Wilshere is in line for an England recall and a chance to revive his World Cup dream as Gareth Southgate prepares to name his squad on Thursday.

And Southgate earmarked Wilshere as a player that can be crucial to the kind of football he wants the Three Lions to play.

"Jack is a player that has unquestionable talent", said Southgate.

"We want to learn things from the [friendly] games about individual players and also get back reconnected with how we train, how we work and how we play because we're only 90 days away from the first game of a World Cup", Southgate said.

"We don't know how the next eight to ten weeks will pan out for all of our goalkeepers but there is good competition for places and I think they're all looking forward to that". "His technical ability in the middle of the park will be very useful".

Pope is one of the goalkeepers that will hope to make their mark in England's upcoming friendlies against Netherlands and Italy, with long-term number one Hart retained in the squad despite his limited playing time and indifferent form for West Ham.

Goldman Sachs names David Solomon as CEO Lloyd Blankfein's replacement
In the years ahead, a priority for Solomon, if he indeed succeeds Blankfein as CEO, will be the rivalry between the US and China. Solomon has also taken on a leading role in the firm's diversity push, including presenting ideas to the board last June.

Gareth Southgate has branded the relationship between the United Kingdom and Russian Federation as a "serious matter" but the England manager insists he is still preparing for the World Cup as normal.

Southgate added on the battle to line up between the sticks: "Clearly the number one jersey is up for grabs".

"Joe has had a hard period for his club".

"With Nick Pope his form has been excellent".

The squad which features three United players, including 33-year old Ashley Young.

"Always part of what I'm working on is to strengthen the squad and that people are able to come in because we've been to previous tournaments and lost important players and the focus is always on that rather than the collective". "The key for me is that he's playing in the games that matter for Arsenal and he's been playing well".

Cahill has struggled to earn a regular spot in the Chelsea team in recent weeks, and Southgate has conceded that he will find it hard to pick the 32-year-old if he is not playing on a consistent basis at club level.
