The time has finally arrived for Roy Hodgson to name his England squad for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. There has been much debate surrounding a number of decisions that Hodgson faced, and the Shaw-Cole debate was one of the selections that had sparked off the biggest debate.

When the news broke last night that Hodgson was set to axe Chelsea full-back, Ashley Cole, in favour of Southampton’s Luke Shaw, there was an explosion of discontent on Twitter.

The 107-capped international has since announced his retirement, with his acceptance of being omitted from Hodgson’s squad being far more graceful than Rio Ferdinand’s two years ago.

Here is just some of the outcry from the Twittersphere.
