Joe Hart admits he has been left gutted by Gareth Southgates decision to leave him out of Englands World Cup squad.

The 31-year-old has spent the last two seasons on-loan at Torino and West Ham but struggled to recapture the form which saw him play pivotal roles in two Manchester City title-winning campaigns.

Hart started all but one of Englands World Cup qualifiers but has been omitted from the Three Lions 23-man squad with Jordan Pickford, Jack Butland and Nick Pope set to contest the No.1 spot, while Tom Heaton has been placed on standby.

After 2 years of trying to make the most of a really tough situation, this is hard to take.

Im proud to have put in the graft and play every minute to qualify with team and have a really important input in that outcome.

I know what I bring to the team, but it is what it is .

Good luck to the team out there, the players know that even though I wont be there I will have my England shirt on as a fan this time and supporting all the way. No fear, go and smash it.
