Alexander-Arnold Makes England Euro2020 Squad, Jesse Lingard Misses Out
Liverpool’s right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold has been called up in England’s 26man squad for the European Championships while there’s no place for Jesse Lingard.
Arnold was dropped for the international break in March with reports from the British media suggesting Gareth Southgate doesn’t fancy the Liverpool man, but he has now been called up for the tournament.
Resurgent Manchester United forward Jesse Lingard misses out despite enjoying a stellar second half of the season on loan at West Ham United, helping the hammers qualify for the Europa League.
James Ward-Prowse, Ollie Watkins, Mason Greenwood, Ben Godfrey, Ben White and Aaron Ramsdale are all other dropped ones from the 3man squad.
England are drawn in Group D against Croatia who eliminated them in the 2018 FIFA World Cup semifinal, Scotland and Czech Republic.
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 (Man City).
