sports: Adrian Durham names the 23-man squad to lead England to World Cup glory
England's friendlies against the Netherlands and Italy were Gareth Southgate's final opportunities to experiment before he names his World Cup squad.
Everton's Jordan Pickford and Stoke City's Jack Butland were both given chances to impress in goal, while Burnley defender James Tarkowski and Bournemouth midfielder Lewis Cook were handed their debuts.
All four of those players did their chances of selection no harm, but plenty of others will feel they didn't enhance their prospects.
Southgate must submit his 30-man preliminary squad by May 14 and will then have until June 4 to name his final 23-man party for the tournament in Russia.
He is likely to still be debating who to pick over the next few months but Adrian Durham has already chosen the group he believes will represent our best chance of World Cup glory.
Here is the 23-man squad talkSPORT's Drivetime presenter reckons Southgate should select:
Goalkeepers: Jack Butland (Stoke City), Freddie Woodman (Newcastle United, on loan at Aberdeen), Jordan Pickford (Everton).
Defenders: Ashley Young (Manchester United), Danny Rose (Tottenham), Harry Maguire (Leicester City), James Tarkowski (Burnley), Joe Gomez (Liverpool), John Stones (Manchester City), Kyle Walker (Manchester City), Kieran Trippier (Tottenham), Ryan Bertrand (Southampton).
Midfielders: Adam Lallana (Liverpool), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Liverpool), Dele Alli (Tottenham), Eric Dier (Tottenham), Jesse Lingard (Manchester United), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Lewis Cook (Bournemouth), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City).
Strikers: Harry Kane (Tottenham), Marcus Rashford (Manchester United), Jamie Vardy (Leicester City).
Adrian has made a few controversial calls. While Joe Hart has struggled at West Ham, it would be a major shock to see England Under-21 international Freddie Woodman given the nod ahead of one of the most experienced shot-stoppers around. There's also no place for Arsenal duo Danny Welbeck and Jack Wilshere, while Manchester United's central defensive pair Chris Smalling and Phil Jones also miss out. There are no Chelsea stars in the squad, either. Who do you think Gareth Southgate should select for his World Cup squad this summer? Let us know below...
