Official: England Euro Squad Announced

 

Gareth Southgate has named an expanded provisional England squad ahead of the Euro 2020 tournament.

With plenty of his players involved in European finals this week and a number of regulars facing a race against time to fit for the campaign, the Three Lions boss has opted to pick more than 30 players.

Trent Alexander-Arnold and Jesse Lingard are both in, while Aaron Ramsdale has been drafted in as a replacement for the injured Nick Pope.

With England sweating over the fitness of Manchester United skipper Harry Maguire, Brighton defender Ben White and Everton’s Ben Godfrey has been handed a first call-up.

White had an impressive first season in the Premier League in 2020/21, playing 36 games and showing a level of versatility that has caught Southgate’s eye.

The Three Lions have two pre-tournament friendly dates against Austria and Romania fast approaching, with a 26-man party needing to be settled on prior to those outings.

A final selection call will be made on June 1, ahead of a Euros opener against Croatia on the 13th of that month, with a number of hopefuls currently on the fringes of the fold set to be given an opportunity in training to prove their worth.
