Euro 2020: England squad announced

England boss Gareth Southgate has named his 26-man England squad for Euro 2020.

The big talking point was the omission of Jesse Lingard who has been in outstanding form for West Ham United.

Overall, Southgate has gone for youth over experience.

Young talents like Jude Bellingham, Bukayo Saka and Phil Foden have been included while relatively older players like Ollie Watkins and James Ward-Prowse have been axed.

The other talking point is the profusion of right backs.

Trent Alexander-Arnold, Reece James, Kyle Walker and Trippier have all been included.

While Arnold and Trippier are known for their creativity and ability to deliver pinpoint crosses, James and Walker provide pace, solidity and defensive cover.

Man United’s Mason Greenwood pulled out with injury.

The seven players to miss out after being named in the provisional 33-man squad are: Aaron Ramsdale (Sheffield United), Ben Godfrey (Everton), Ben White (Brighton), Jesse Lingard (West Ham), James Ward-Prowse (Southampton), Mason Greenwood (Manchester United), Ollie Watkins (Aston Villa).

This squad also has fitness concerns.

Harry Maguire, Jordan Henderson and Kalvin Phillips have been picked, despite struggling with knocks.

Final EURO 2020 squad

Goalkeepers: Dean Henderson (Manchester United), Sam Johnstone (West Brom), Jordan Pickford (Everton),

Defenders: Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Ben Chilwell (Chelsea), Conor Coady (Wolves), Reece James (Chelsea), Harry Maguire (Manchester United), Tyrone Mings (Aston Villa), Luke Shaw (Manchester United), John Stones (Manchester City), Kieran Trippier (Atletico Madrid), Kyle Walker (Manchester City)

Midfielders: Jude Bellingham (Borussia Dortmund), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Mason Mount (Chelsea), Kalvin Phillips (Leeds), Declan Rice (West Ham)

Forwards: Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton), Phil Foden (Man City), Jack Grealish (Aston Villa), Harry Kane (Tottenham), Marcus Rashford (Manchester United), Bukayo Saka (Arsenal), Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City)
