Homepage - Entertainment

Three Lions stars will be joined by the biggest-ever army of WAGs as they fly to Qatar ahead of the 2022 World Cup kick-off.

England is expected to be among the most promising contenders for this year's World Cup in Qatar, which will help the country put an end to the 56-year international trophy drought. To materialize that dream, England manager Gareth Southgate has chosen his best players who are expected to shine in Qatar.

On Thursday, Southgate confirmed the official squad for the tournament, which consists of 26 players, reports The Sun. James Maddison and Conor Gallagher were the two latest additions, while England will definitely be missing its arguably best wing-backs, Reece James and Ben Chilwell.

And according to the Mirror, the majority of England's players will be accompanied by their WAGs in Qatar, making Gareth Southgate's team apparently have the largest traveling team of WAGs in the history of the Three Lions.

As they go to the gulf country next week, several members of the team intend to bring their families to Qatar for the big kickoff on November 20. Eight of Harry Maguire's closest friends and family will stand by him. The Man United player will have support from his 28-year-old wife Fern, their two children, his parents, two brothers, and sister.

Together with their three-year-old son Arlo, Megan Davison, Jordan Pickford's wife, and Sasha Attwood, Jack Grealish's girlfriend, ‘Team Maguire’ will travel the 6,500 miles round trip. An insider reveals:

‘A group of the WAGs became very close at Fern and Megan’s weddings in the summer. They are going to stay together in close-knit groups to avoid any problems when they go out’.

Katie Goodland, who recently travelled to Doha to look at hotels, would likely accompany Captain Harry Kane and their two kids earlier this year. Charlotte Trippier, wife of Newcastle United player Kieran Trippier, will also be traveling.

According to the BBC, the traveling party will reportedly include Luke Shaw's partner Anouska Santos, who is rumored to be bringing their 2 kids, a babysitter, a hairdresser, and a beautician, as well as Jack Grealish's partner Sasha Attwood, 25.

Where will the WAGs be staying?

The majority of the families will board the £1 billion luxury cruise ship MSC World Europa, where five-star accommodations may cost up to £6,000 per night during the competition. They will be among the nearly 7,000 guests on board the cruise ship, which is described as an 'ultra modern metropolis'.

The luxury facility features 2,633 cabins, with the majority of the basic rooms having a bed, wardrobe, bathroom and TV. Entertainment facilities include six swimming pools, 14 ocean-view whirlpools and a 643 foot promenade.

Who will pay for the accommodation cost?

Although the FA is rumored to have assisted with certain expenditures for the players' families, the Three Lions stars are still responsible for covering the majority of them, which includes private medical insurance.

‘Despite Covid, around 80 per cent of the players expect to take their wives and girlfriends. Some will be on a cruise liner, some in luxury hotels in Doha. But many are staying in Dubai’.

The England team will be housed in a tight Covid bubble at their lodging, the Souq Al Wakra hotel in Doha, so even though the WAGs will be nearby, they'll need to keep their distance.
