And Hart, 31, blames Moyes, who dropped him from West Ham’s team at the end of the season.

On loan from Manchester City, Hart suffered a poor season and was once again dropped after the 4-1 loss to Arsenal on April 22.

Spanish keeper Adrian played West Ham’s remaining three games and England coach Southgate has decided to give him the boot.

This is despite the fact Southgate claimed in December that Hart was his first choice keeper and in March said: “Joe’s professionalism has been brilliant with us. He’s always performed well.

“We had the best defensive record in Europe in qualifying.

“He’s a good leader to have around. He is everything you would hope a senior player would be.”

Pickford has only played twice for England but is likely to be No 1 at the World Cup, with England’s first game against Tunisia on June 18.

And former England defender Rio Ferdinand believes axing Hart is the “right decision”.

He said: “It’s pointless taking someone of that age over a young keeper.

“Why not take a younger keeper who is going to gain experience?

“What is Joe going to learn from going to this World Cup?

“In my eyes it’s the right decision.”
