Joe Hart: 'I'm gutted to miss World Cup with England'

Joe Hart: 'I'm gutted to miss World Cup'

Goalkeeper Joe Hart admits that he is "gutted" to have been left out of England's squad for the World Cup.

Goalkeeper Joe Hart has expressed his disappointment at missing out on England's World Cup squad, saying that he 'knows what he brings to the team'.

Despite an inconsistent campaign on loan at West Ham United, Hart had been expected to travel to Russia as Gareth Southgate's third-choice stopper to add experience to the goalkeeping ranks.

However, Southgate has opted to select Burnley stopper Nick Pope - who is yet to make his international debut - in his place, and the Manchester City man has acknowledged that he is "gutted".

On Instagram, the 31-year-old said: "Not going to lie, I'm gutted. After 2 years of trying to make the most of a really tough situation, this is hard to take.

"I'm proud to have put in the graft and play every minute to qualify with the 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 won't be there, I will have my England shirt on as a fan this time and supporting all the way."

Southgate has said that Hart was "very unfortunate" to miss out on the 23-man squad.
