The highest scorers of the Fantasy Premier League missing from the England squad
Will their presence be missed?
Gareth Southgate has announced England’s 23-man World Cup squad, but if you’re a fantasy football manager you might have a few questions about the selection.
Here are the top scoring English players in the Fantasy Premier League this season who didn’t make it on the plane – will Southgate regret leaving some of them behind?
Chris Smalling, 123 points
With 11 clean sheets and nine bonus points – awarded based on a player’s performance – the 28-year-old centre back has excelled this season despite missing nine fixtures.
Ben Foster, 123 points
The Baggies’ relegation could have played against the 35-year-old, who has eight England caps, but the selected Jack Butland, who scored 125 points, also went down with Stoke.
Andros Townsend, 121 points
He was once a star for Palace manager Roy Hodgson’s England team, with spectacular strikes against Italy and Montenegro, but he spent this season in the shadow of teammate Wilfried Zaha.
Aaron Cresswell, 118 points
He has surpassed this total points score twice before, but has been overlooked regularly and at 28 has just three England caps.
Jamaal Lascelles, 116 points
At 24 he has years of top football ahead of him, but has yet to be given a senior England call up, having played at youth level.
Wayne Rooney, 113 points
Rooney, 32, scored 10 goals and made three assists, but most significantly he earned a whopping 20 bonus points for his performances despite missing several games.
Alfie Mawson, 112 points
After playing every minute this season, Mawson’s hopes of making the England squad were ended after his club announced he had surgery for a knee problem he has been carrying.
Jay Rodriguez, 109 points
It’s the 28-year-old’s second most successful season in the Fantasy Premier League, after his score of 152 for Southampton in the 2013/14 season.
Marc Albrighton, 107 points
The 28-year-old also got 12 bonus points, but still doesn’t have a single England cap.
