Gareth Southgate Confirms Joe Hart Will Be Dropped For England

Plenty of people were surprised to see Joe Hart's name on the England team sheet to face Slovenia on Thursday evening.

West Ham's number one didn't concede in the World Cup qualifier, but England manager Gareth Southgate has decided to drop the 30-year-old ahead of tomorrow's clash against Lithuania, opting to select another Premier League goalkeeper in between the sticks.

It is likely that a starting spot is there for the taking if Pickford can replicate his form last season for Everton in both domestic competitions and the Europa League.
