England secured qualification for the 2018 World Cup with an unbeaten record in qualifying seeing them top their group.

However, performances towards the end of the campaign weren't convincing despite the wins, and there will still be a number of places up for grabs in Gareth Southgate's squad.

There are a number of players who may deserve a chance ahead of the World Cup in Russia, and we single out five players in particular who may be in with a shot at gatecrashing the eventual 23-man squad.

These players include a former favourite of Southgate's in the England under-21 set up, a midfielder who was named the best player in the 2016 Toulon Tournament, a striker who hasn't played for England since 2012, a left field defensive suggestion, and a striker plying his trade outside of England.

Will these choices get a chance in the final selection, or are there others who could also get the call for the trip east?
