Southgate Names Provisional England Squad For Euro 2024, Omits Rashford And Henderson

England manager Gareth Southgate has announced his provisional 33-man squad for Euro 2024, featuring notable inclusions and exclusions. Crystal Palace’s Eberechi Eze, Manchester United’s Kobbie Mainoo, and Crystal Palace’s Marc Guehi are among the new faces, while Marcus Rashford and Jordan Henderson are conspicuously absent.

Southgate has opted for a blend of youth and experience, including five uncapped players: Liverpool’s Curtis Jones and Jarell Quansah, Everton’s Jarrad Branthwaite, Crystal Palace midfielder Adam Wharton, and Burnley goalkeeper James Trafford.

Several players have been rewarded for their impressive club performances this season. Cole Palmer of Chelsea, Anthony Gordon of Newcastle, and Ollie Watkins of Aston Villa have all earned spots, along with Brentford’s Ivan Toney, who makes the squad despite returning from an eight-month suspension for breaching Football Association betting rules.

Jack Grealish is included despite limited playing time in Manchester City’s title-winning campaign, and Kobbie Mainoo’s rise continues after making his full league debut for Manchester United in November. Meanwhile, Luke Shaw is named despite being out since February with a muscle injury.

With UEFA’s deadline for final squad submissions on June 7, Southgate will need to trim the list to 26 players. Rashford, who has been part of England’s last four major tournament squads, misses out after a lackluster season where he scored just seven goals in 33 league appearances for Manchester United.

Henderson, who faced criticism for his move to Saudi Arabian club Al Ettifaq, also misses the cut. Southgate faced backlash for continuing to select Henderson after his move from Liverpool last summer. Kalvin Phillips, who joined West Ham on loan from Manchester City in January, also misses out.

England’s preparations include friendlies against Bosnia and Herzegovina in Newcastle on June 3 and Iceland at Wembley on June 7.
