Hart has endured a miserable campaign in the Premier League. He's played 19 league games for The Hammers since joining them on loan from Manchester City.
Everton's Jordan Pickford remains the favourite to be England's No.1 in Russia.
Hart's expected exclusion from the England team sent social media into overdrive. Here's some reaction from Twitter:

Nice to see Gareth Southgate has a set of balls and has binned Joe Hart. Correct decision- Andrew Murphy (@smurf_01) May 15, 2018
Fantastic news that Joe Hart isn't going to the World Cup.- Gav. (@Gav1879) May 15, 2018
One of the best things Southgate has done since taking the England job is bomb out hasbeens that don't deserve to be in the squad. Hopefully Gary Cahill is next.
Southgate has got backbone. Fantastic to see Joe Hart isn't going to the World Cup :clap:- Charlie Palethorpe (@ChazPalethorpe) May 15, 2018
