Chelsea players at World Cup 2022: Who has been CONFIRMED for Qatar and who is staying at home?

    It was likely to have been more if Reece James and Ben Chilwell had been fit. But the pair’s injuries have ruled them out of Southgate’s plans.

    N’golo Kante would almost definitely have played for France too, but he will remain in London as he recovers from a hamstring injury.

    SunSport have taken a look at all the Chelsea players who will feature in Qatar.


    Mason Mount and Raheem Sterling became stalwarts of England’s starting eleven during the Euro’s, and have been called up again this year.

    They will be joined by the less experienced Conor Gallagher who has just four international appearances under his belt.

    Chelsea star Kai Havertz has become one of the first names on Germany’s team sheet, competing in the last seven consecutive tournaments for his country.
