Whilst around 18 players can be fairly confident of making the trip to Qatar, there is still potential for certain players to make a late run and book their ticket. With the event not happening until November, anybody who makes a storming start to the 2022/23 season could force their way into Gareth Southgate’s thinking. Here are two players who could be worth a wager to make the final 23 man squad:

James Ward Prowse

Currently valued to 2/1 with most bookies, Ward Prowse is perhaps not the most dynamic midfielder available to Southgate, but he is comfortably the best free kick taker in the Premier League. The Southampton midfielder has scored 14 direct free kicks in the top flight, only David Beckham has scored more in Premier League history. Given the likelihood of close games in Qatar, Southgate may see Ward Prowse’s dead ball prowess as being a potential game changing attribute.

Fikayo Tomori

The AC Milan centre back has enjoyed an excellent season in Serie A and despite being largely overlooked by Southgate, he must surely be very close to selection.

For all their strengths, England do look slightly light in the middle of their backline. John Stones and Harry Maguire are certainties, although the latter’s club form is a big cause for concern, but after that, the picture is less clear. Connor Coady is a regular squad member, but has yet to prove he is international class. Arsenal’s Ben White is an option, as he can also play full back, whilst Tyrone Mings and Marc Guehi are also in the reckoning, but do not exactly scream out as strong options

All of which leaves Tomori in an excellent position to force his way into contention, so it is surprising that he is as long as 5/1 with many bookmakers, a price you can take advantage of by joining Bet365 using our fantastic welcome offer.
