Gareth Southgate could axe England stars over Covid jab as unvaxxed players will miss Iran tie

Gareth Southgate could reportedly leave out several players from his England World Cup squad due to their refusal to be vaccinated.The England manager is allowed to take a squad of 26 players to the Qatar 2022 World Cup, but a number of players in the regular England camp are yet to take their Covid-19 jabs. That could spell trouble due to current regulations meaning they will have to self-isolate for five days upon arrival in the Middle-Eastern country.England's first World Cup clash will be against Iran on November 21, which The Daily Mail reports is just six days after their arrival in Qatar.

That means any self-isolating player will likely miss the crucial game as a result of having barely trained with the rest of the squad.READ MORE: World Cup of Pundits: Vote for ultimate footy expert as Roy Keane aims to defend titleThe Mail claims Southgate will therefore have to leave some players out of his squad entirely, giving the manager an unneeded dilemma as he looks to win England their first World Cup since 1966.It would be a continuation of what some English clubs have already had to do for their pre-season tours. Chelsea and Crystal Palace, for example, had to leave several players behind as they took to the USA and Australia respectively.Do you think England will win the World Cup?
