ENGLAND SQUAD: Gareth Southgate names a provisional England squad
Gareth Southgate has named a provisional England squad for the European Championships this summer, opting to name a longer list than planned.
Euro 2020 is nearly here (just a year late) and there is a huge amount of anticipation around England after their successful World Cup in 2018 where they reached the semi-finals.
With so many English players impressing in the Premier League season which finished on Sunday as well as across Europe, there has been a fair amount of debate on who Southgate should include in his 26 man squad he is required to submit to UEFA by the 1st June.
Initially, Southgate was going to name the full 26 man squad on the 25th May but has opted to name a longer list due to injury worries around the likes of Harry Maguire, Jordan Henderson and Kalvin Phillips.
There is also English team involvement in both the Europa League final on 26th May as Manchester United take on Villarreal and the Champions League final on the 29th May between Manchester City and Chelsea
