Manchester United fans confused by England World Cup squad omission

Manchester United supporters have been left feeling disappointed after Chris Smalling was left out of the England squad for this summer's World Cup.

Gareth Southgate named four Reds in his 23-man squad for the tournament in Russia with Jesse Lingard, Phil Jones, Ashley Young and Marcus Rashford making the cut.

However, there was no place in the team for Smalling, despite a solid season which has seen him at the heart of a Premier League defence which only conceded 28 goals.

Smalling made bizarre headlines last month after he nullified the attacking threat of Harry Kane during the Reds comeback win over Tottenham in the FA Cup semi-finals.

Despite his recent solid displays, Southgate made it clear earlier in the season the United defender was not in his immediate plans.

And while Reds understand Smalling might not be the first-choice defensive option for his country, they believe he has been unfairly overlooked ahead of the major tournament.

No question

Strange that Southgate exiled Smalling so early. He couldn't really backtrack from that and include him, so not surprising he's been omitted from the #EnglandSquad. He's played a lot of football this season and has been generally good. Better than Cahill without question.

I really don’t get how jones gets the nod over smalling. If Southgate is picking one out of then two it has to be smalling. Can’t stand jones.....

By no means a Smalling fan whatsoever but if Cahill gets in ahead of him, he’s been very unlucky! Played nearly every game for united in last few months & done reasonably well whereas Cahill.... #mufc #cfc https://twitter.com/telefootball/status/996711485828198405 …
