ROY KEANE, Gary Neville and Ian Wright couldn't find room for any England players in their World Cup Team of the Tournament.

The Three Lions were knocked out in the quarters by losing finalists France, who had three players in the combined XI.



There were no surprises to see champions Argentina have the most representatives in ITV's Team of the Tournament with five.

In total eight players from Sunday's incredible World Cup final, which Argentina won on penalties, made the team.

While overall there were just a combined four nations represented in the XI.

Wright made a case for Jude Bellingham in midfield, but the England man was edged out by France's Aurelien Tchouameni and Morocco's Sofyan Amrabat.

The Aston Villa keeper denied Randal Kolo Muani with a stunning last-gasp save in the dying stages of extra-time, before saving from Kingsley Coman in the shootout.

Morocco talisman Achraf Hakimi was picked at right-back after helping his nation to the semi-finals, with 20-year-old Croatian sensation Josko Gvardiol in the heart of defence.

Marcos Acuna was selected at left-back despite not starting the semi-final or final, and Cristian Romero made up the back four.

The likes of Bellingham, Marcus Rashford, Harry Kane and Harry Maguire were all excellent for the Three Lions, but were ultimately edged out by players who went further in the tournament.
