England squad for EURO 2024

Jack Grealish and Harry Maguire have been left out of England’s final squad for Euro 2024.

Maguire misses out due to a calf injury that has kept him out of action since mid-April, while his Manchester United team-mate Luke Shaw makes the cut despite not having played since February due to a hamstring problem.

James Maddison and Curtis Jones have also been culled with Crystal Palace duo Adam Wharton, uncapped until Monday’s win over Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Eberechi Eze preferred, making the Eagles the most-represented club in the squad with four players.

Southgate has picked Marc Guehi, Lewis Dunk, Joe Gomez, and Ezri Konsa as potential center-back partners for John Stones, leaving out Jarrad Branthwaite and Jarell Quansah. However, the young Liverpool defender has remained on standby.

Meanwhile, Luke Shaw has made the final 26-player squad with England manager Gareth Southgate confirming that the left-back could be fit for the Three Lions’ second group game with Denmark on June 20.

Manchester United teenager Kobbie Mainoo, who made his international debut against Brazil in March, has also been selected, while Southgate has opted to take Ivan Toney and Ollie Watkins as deputies to Harry Kane.

England can make late replacements to their squad until their first game at the Euros on June 16 against Serbia if a player has been injured or falls sick, while goalkeepers can be changed throughout the tournament.
