Trent Alexander-Arnold has been included in England’s 26-man squad for the summer European Championships. Liverpool defender Alexander-Arnold, 22, is one of four right backs, while the injured Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson are included in the deal. Coach Gareth Southgate has had to withdraw seven players from his provisional squad. Mason Greenwood is out with an injury and Jesse Lingard, Aaron Ramsdale, Ben White, Ben Godfrey, James Ward-Prowse and Ollie Watkins are still out. The final selection means that there will be no debutants in the tournament, which starts next week. Southgate said: I think any selection is difficult because we have a lot of talented players in this country. The hardest thing [this time] is that we can’t bring in players who have played in previous games and are such good professionals. So I know what a disappointment it is for them to not go to a major championship. Alexander-Arnold adds to the list of 12 games played, including the last one against Belgium in the Nations League last October. Alexander-Arnold missed the last seven international games but will be competing for a place in the starting line-up with Champions League winner Reece James for Chelsea, Kieran Trippier, who won La Liga with Atletico Madrid, and Premier League winner Kyle Walker for Manchester City. Liverpool captain Henderson has been out since February with a groin injury, while United captain Maguire has missed the last four league games of the season and the Europa League final with an ankle ligament injury. Southgate added: The hardest thing was those injuries and whether we should take risks – players like Jordan Henderson and Harry Maguire were out of place. With the experience they have, we think we can get them to compete in the tournament and be worth competing against – especially as we have a wide selection of 26 players. If I could pick five or six right backs, I would – Southgate

Who will England play this month?

The tournament has been postponed for a year due to the coronavirus pandemic and will be held on the 11th. The final will be held on June 11. July at Wembley Stadium. Southgate will get the chance to test his squad in two friendly matches – against Austria on Wednesday and Romania on Sunday. Both matches will be played at the Riverside Stadium in Middlesbrough. Southgate said Lingard, Ward-Prowse and Watkins had the option to go home without being in the final selection, but chose to stay for this week’s friendlies. He added that White, Godfrey and Ramsdale knew in advance that they were in the provisional team to gain experience. The Three Lions begin their Euro campaign on June 13 against Croatia, then play an important match against rivals Scotland on June 18, before exiting Group D on June 22 with a match against the Czech Republic. All of England’s group matches will be played at Wembley Stadium. If they win their group, they will also get the chance to play their opponents at home in the round of 16, with the semi-final and final taking place at Wembley.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is in the England squad?

It’s been a tough couple of years for England’s footballers. The World Cup was a disappointment, and the recent exit from the Euros has led to many players leaving the national team. However, the football prognosticators at FIFA have a round of matches coming up, and England’s star players are set for a busy summer. England made the long journey to Russia after losing to Iceland in the 2018 World Cup semi-finals. It was a miserable campaign, but the national team can be proud of the way they bounced back. The squad selected for Euro 2020 was much stronger than last years, with captain Harry Kane coming back from injury to lead the attack. With England in the mix at the tournament, the nation can look forward to a great tournament too.
