England Euro 2020 squad: Gareth Southgate names provisional squad for tournament


Gareth Southgate has selected his provisional England squad for Euro 2020.

Southgate was set to announce his 26-man squad but, due to injuries and the fact the Champions League final and Europa League final will feature plenty of England players, has delayed his final decision until June 1.

Instead, the Three Lions boss has selected a 33-man squad, with the aim of trimming it down on Monday when availability becomes a bit clearer.
