West Bromwich Albion

Livermore given standby role by Southgate

16th May 2018, 19:56 by Tom Hill

England boss Gareth Southgate has placed West Brom midfielder Jake Livermore on standby for his World Cup squad this summer.

The Albion star has been in impressive form this season, with coach Darren Moore describing him as "incredible" last weekend.

Livermore's form was enough to impress Southgate as he continually selected him in his squad this season.

However, he has failed to make the 23-man squad but Southgate still wants him on the fringe of things.

Livermore earned a Premier League player of the month nomination for April, after his performances against Liverpool and Tottenham and he could be selected if any of the squad become unavailable.

He joins Tom Heaton, James Tarkowski, Lewis Cook and Adam Lallana in being placed on the back-up list. They will train with the squad ahead of the tournament before they travel to Russia in June.
