3:00pm

What a day it's been for Saints on the back of this incredible announcement.

That's the end of our live coverage but keep checking onto the website and tomorrow's paper for all the reaction.

Basingstoke Gazette:

2:43pm

2:41pm

Hodgson's comments which might well apply to Lallana and Shaw after their stellar seasons pushed them into the England squad: ''You can't ignore what people are doing on a week-to-week basis in their club sides; you select on what is happening.''

2:39pm

Here's what Hodgson is facing today...

Basingstoke Gazette:

2:38pm

Former England interim manager Peter Taylor has backed the decision to take Luke Shaw to the World Cup in Brazil ahead of the far more experienced Ashley Cole.

Taylor, who led England between the permanent reigns of Kevin Keegan and Sven-Goran Eriksson, believes Shaw will be included mainly to garner experience of a tournament before establishing himself as first-choice.

"I think it is a great decision," he said.

"It is obvious that Roy is thinking of Baines being number one and he will take Shaw with him because he might not be needed but it will be a good experience and get him ready for the Euros.

"I know that is a little bit of a gamble but it is obvious Baines is number one so it is a good decision for a very good young player."

2:36pm

Hodgson on choosing Lambert over Carroll: "The fact he played for Southampton didn't have any effect. Rickie Lambert has been with us throughout the campaign. It wasn't an easy decision to make but in the end I plumped for Rickie Lambert."

2:29pm

Hodgson: "Of course I believe the squad can win the World Cup."

2:28pm

Hodgson when asked if you can't win anything win kids: "Southampton might have proved it wrong...Southampton have had a very good season."

2:27pm

2:24pm Mon 12 May 14

Norwegian Saint says

2 Man city
2 Arsenal
3 Saints!!!

2:24pm

Only six of the players named today were in the World Cup squad in 2010

2:22pm

Hodgson: "Luke Shaw has had a wonderful season and has captured the headlines with his form and his ability. But it was an incredibly hard decision... Circumstances will prove if it was the right one."

Basingstoke Gazette:

2:20pm

Hodgson: "It was a very hard decision because Ashley is a player that I and the rest of my staff really appreicate. He is a magnificent player and what he has done for England is second to none.

"Then of course the emerging Luke Shaw who has had a wonderful season."

He added: "At the end if the day it was a decision I had to take and it was a hard job to call Ashley and explain that to him."

2:16pm

2:07pm

2:06pm

Roy Hodgson will be addressing the media to explain his selections in about ten minutes. We will bring you the relevant bits.

Hodgson will have a much more indepth briefing with the written journalists for tomorrow's paper afterwards and we will bring you that in tomorrow's Daily Echo

2:05pm

Saints legend Matt Le Tissier has spoken to the Daily Echo's Gordon Simpson.

Here is his instant reaction...

“It’s absolutely brilliant for the football club. It’s a very proud day for everyone associated with the club, not just the three boys.

“The fact the team has had such a terrific season has helped the lads individually to get in.

“Also, we should still spare a thought on a day like this for Jay, who very well could have been included too."

Basingstoke Gazette: Matt le Tissier

Basingstoke Gazette:

1:20pm

Stat alert...

Rickie Lambert would be the third oldest striker England have taken to a World Cup.

The older ones were Teddy Sheringham and Emile Heskey.

You can stun your friends with that one down the pub later.

SPIKEISLANDTRADER says

Think its JOB done for our boys and their bags are packed ready for Brazil . All have earned the right to wear the 3 lions , and these boys have the bite to get us through . Shame Jay cant join in the party , but his time will come

1:07pm

Time for a quick half hour poll. Get your votes in quick...

 

1:04pm

The media are starting to gather at Vauxhall HQ with just under an hour until the announcment

12:23pm

As per usual we pretty much know the England squad before the announcement is made.

Sky Sports have this gem of good news

12:10pm

The Guardian have reported that they have details of the stand-by list. If it's correct no room for Nathaniel Clyne but Andy Carroll is in it which means Rickie Lambert would be in the 23 along with Lallana and Shaw.

They say it is:

Andy Carroll (West Ham)
John Stones (Everton)
John Ruddy (Norwich)
Jermain Defoe (Toronto)
Tom Cleverley (Man Utd)
John Flanaghan (Liverpool)

12:08pm

Luke Shaw would be the third youngest player to be named in an England World Cup squad behind Michael Owen and Theo Walcott.

Basingstoke Gazette: LUKE SHAW: Has he played his way into World Cup contention?

11:58am

Here is the Japan squad in full in case you were interested.

Goalkeepers: Eiji Kawashima (Standard Liege), Shusaku Nishikawa (Urawa Reds), Shuichi Gonda (FC Tokyo)

Defenders: Masahiko Inoha (Jubilo Iwata), Yasuyuki Konno (Gamba Osaka), Yuto Nagatomo (Inter Milan), Masato Morishige (FC Tokyo), Atsuto Uchida (Schalke), Maya Yoshida (Southampton), Hiroki Sakai (Hannover), Gotoku Sakai (Stuttgart)

Midfielders: Yasuhito Endo (Gamba Osaka), Makoto Hasebe (Nuremberg), Toshihiro Aoyama (Sanfrecce Hiroshima), Hotaru Yamaguchi (Cerezo Osaka)

Forwards: Keisuke Honda (AC Milan), Yoshito Okubo (Kawasaki Frontale), Shinji Okazaki (Mainz), Shinji Kagawa (Manchester United), Hiroshi Kiyotake (Nuremberg), Yoichiro Kakitani (Cerezo Osaka), Manabu Saito (Yokohama F Marinos), Yuya Osako (1860 Munich)

11:57am

First bit of genuine news for the day.

It has been confirmed that Maya Yoshida has been included in Japan's 23 man squad for the World Cup.

Basingstoke Gazette: Maya Yoshida

11:52am

Former pro turned pundit Robbie Savage not only has Adam Lallana in his England squad but in his team for the first game...

 

11:45am

Of course, Saints fans will also this morning be concerned as to whether Adam Lallana and Luke Shaw will still be Saints players at the time of the World Cup.

Unconfirmed reports suggest that Saints have already had big money offers for both of their stars from Liverpool and Manchester United respectively

11:32am

As well as the big three we know about, don't rule out Nathaniel Clyne.

He is unlikely to make the 23 man squad but has a chance of making it into the seven man stand-by list.

He can cover both full back positions and could be the winner of Kyle Walker's injury problems.

Basingstoke Gazette: Nathaniel Clyne

11:26am

It's worth noting what a momentous day this could be for Saints.

Only four serving players have ever gone to a World Cup with England.

They are Terry Paine, Kevin Keegan, Peter Shilton and Wayne Bridge.

Basingstoke Gazette: REDLANDS VISIT: Peter Shilton

11:14am

Saints president and 1966 legend Terry Paine has made his feelings quite clear.

He believes that all three Saints players have to go to Brazil

Basingstoke Gazette: Terry Paine today

11:11am

On top of that it is widely reported that Milner, Barkley and Lampard are all in

11:11am

As is normal in these circumstances, the England squad has been leaking out.

We also hear that John Ruddy has missed out meaning the three keepers will be Joe Hart, Ben Foster and Fraser Forster

11:05am

He then all but confirmed that Shaw was in the squad...

11:05am

Luke Shaw's hopes have been boosted by the news that Ashley Cole has retired from international football after being overlooked by Hodgson.

The England manager phoned all the players concerned last night.

Here is how that news broke...

11:03am

Hello and welcome to the Daily Echo's live coverage of the naming of the England World Cup squad.

Roy Hodgson will name his 23 man party for the trip to Brazil at the Vauxhall HQ in Luton at 2pm, along with seven players on stand-by in case of injuries.

Saints have plenty of interest with Adam Lallana, Luke Shaw and Rickie Lambert all tipped to get into the 23.

My Uncle Hua was institutionalised four years ago when he said Rambert, Rarrana AND a 14 year old in the academy would all make the World Cup squad in 2014. I think they will let him out with full compensation at 2.00pm.

Strasbourg Saint says...

Can't argue with too much of that.

Although predictable, the respective inclusions of Smalling and Cleverley are my only gripes. Simply not good enough!

Huddlestone might have got the nod if he played for a bigger club and I think that Jack and Nat might have inched their way into the extended squad had they played the whole season.

Well done Luke, Adam and Rickie - so happy for all three of you and, really, really chuffed for Rickie who has done it the hard way.

Charlie Miller - a man from Southampton took footy to Brazil, now The Saints are off to enjoy the samba. Brilliant!

Brilliant for all three and for Saints profile.
Now Les & Ralph convince Adam & Luke to stay one more season to see if we can get into a Champions league spot next season, they are still under contract anyway.
But if you fail then DO NOT SELL UNTIL AFTER THE WORD CUP they will be worth more after it and transfer targets are more likely to come while they are here.

If you look at the youth development behind the Engand squad - Saints academy leads the way with three... Lallana, Shaw and Oxlade-Chamberlain. Walcott would have been number four had he been fit.

It will be interesting to see how many more make the step up for the Euro's
