The 2022 FIFA World Cup is just around the corner with the first match to be played on November 20.
Before the players take the pitch, however, all eyes will be on the managers as they select their squads for the tournament in Qatar.
Who to take and who to leave behind is never an easy decision with players around the world currently trying to impress at club level.
With the World Cup creeping closer, time is running out for any potential bolters, with teams close to being locked in.
When are World Cup squads announced?
Most national teams are expected to announce their initial World Cup squad a month before the tournament.
This means squads for most teams should start being released from October 20 onwards.
It’s been reported by The Telegraph that Gareth Southgate will name the England squad on October 21.
