England’s Euro 2024 Squad List

England’s squad for Euro 2024 is set! Manager Gareth Southgate has narrowed his initial group of 33 players down to the final 26. The Three Lions will head to Germany next week with this 26-man team ready for the tournament.

England’s Euro 2024 squad list:

Goalkeepers:

Jordan Pickford (Everton), Aaron Ramsdale (Arsenal), Dean Henderson (Crystal Palace)

Defenders:

Lewis Dunk (Brighton & Hove Albion), Joe Gomez (Liverpool), Marc Guehi (Crystal Palace), Ezri Konsa (Aston Villa), Luke Shaw (Manchester United), John Stones (Manchester City), Kieran Trippier (Newcastle United), Kyle Walker (Manchester City)

Midfielders:

Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Jude Bellingham (Real Madrid), Conor Gallagher (Chelsea), Kobbie Mainoo (Manchester United), Declan Rice (Arsenal), Adam Wharton (Crystal Palace)

Forwards:

Jarrod Bowen (West Ham United), Eberechi Eze (Crystal Palace), Phil Foden (Manchester City), Anthony Gordon (Newcastle United), Harry Kane (Bayern Munich), Cole Palmer (Chelsea), Bukayo Saka (Arsenal), Ivan Toney (Brentford), Ollie Watkins (Aston Villa)

Goalkeepers:

Jordan Pickford

Jordan Pickford has been England’s top goalkeeper since 2016 under Gareth Southgate. Despite Everton’s struggles, he remains the No. 1, thanks to his outstanding performances and numerous clean sheets.

Aaron Ramsdale

Although the goalkeeper lost his starting spot at Arsenal to David Raya, he is still heading to the Euros as Jordan Pickford’s backup.

Dean Henderson

Dean Henderson stepped in for the injured Sam Johnstone at Crystal Palace and helped them finish the season unbeaten. Now, he will be England’s third-choice goalkeeper for the Euros.

 

Defenders:

John Stones

The Manchester City defender has been vital for Southgate, especially in previous World Cups and Euros. With few alternatives in the center-back position, his place in the squad is even more secure.

Kyle Walker

The Manchester City captain is essential for Southgate, bringing experience, pace, and versatility. He’s earned 61 caps since 2016.

Kieran Trippier

Trippier, a favorite of Southgate, will likely be in the squad for his experience, versatility, and set-piece skills. Despite a dip in form and recent injuries, he will join the team in Germany, possibly playing at left-back.

Luke Shaw

When fit, Shaw is England’s preferred left-back for his attacking threat. He’s been sidelined mostly this season due to a leg injury and ended his campaign early with a hamstring strain. Despite this, Southgate included him in the final squad, but the focus now is on getting fully fit for Germany.

Lewis Dunk

Brighton’s captain waited five years for his second international cap but has seen more chances under Southgate in the past year. His aerial dominance and ball-playing ability, honed at Brighton under Roberto De Zerbi, make him valuable in defense, an area of uncertainty for England.

Ezri Konsa

Konsa plays a key role in the strong Aston Villa team led by Unai Emery. He featured in England’s friendly against Brazil in March and will go to Germany as a backup center-back. He’s versatile enough to also play as a right-back.

Marc Guehi

At 23 Crystal Palace defender, he’s seen as a potential future star in defense. With the center-back spot still up for grabs at Euro 2024, Guehi has a good chance, especially after starting in qualifying matches.

 

Midfielders:

Jude Bellingham

The 20-year-old has become essential for England and Real Madrid, delivering strong performances with goals and assists from midfield. Southgate usually plays him as a No. 10, supporting Kane, a role he’ll likely have at the Euros.

Trent Alexander-Arnold

Alexander-Arnold struggled for game time as a right-back for England but found more involvement after moving into midfield. As Liverpool’s vice-captain, he offers creativity and precise set-piece delivery. He might be an option alongside Rice in a deeper midfield role.

Declan Rice

Rice has been exceptional for Arsenal this season and has become crucial for England too. He’s vital to their style of play, almost as important as Kane.

Conor Gallagher

Gallagher’s energetic performances for England and regular starts at Chelsea earned him a spot for the Euros, addressing England’s depth issue in his position.

Kobbie Mainoo

Mainoo had a fantastic year at Manchester United after moving up from the academy. His impressive debut for England against Belgium earned him a spot in the Euros squad, and he might even start in the XI.

Eberechi Eze

Another Crystal Palace player, Eze, ended the season strongly as the team’s main attacker. He performed well against Bosnia and secured his spot in the squad.

Adam Wharton

The Crystal Palace midfielder has earned a spot in England’s training squad. Wharton’s debut against Bosnia caught Southgate’s eye, addressing England’s need for competition in the box-to-box midfield position.

 

Forwards:

Harry Kane

England’s captain, a talisman on the pitch, had a record-breaking debut season at Bayern Munich despite no trophies. Concerns arose about his fitness due to a back injury, but he managed to come off the bench and score against Bosnia.

Phil Foden

Foden had a stellar season at Manchester City and is increasingly important for both club and country. His unique ball control sets him apart in the national squad, posing a challenge for Southgate in fitting him alongside other attacking talents like Bellingham and Saka.

Bukayo Saka

Saka, at just 22, is becoming a key player for England and will have an important role at Euro 2024. He had a great season for Arsenal, scoring 20 goals and providing 14 assists in 47 games. Saka will be the top choice for England’s right wing in Germany.

Cole Palmer

Chelsea’s top player won the Premier League’s Young Player of the Year award after scoring 26 goals and providing 15 assists. Palmer has two England caps, scoring against Bosnia, and his four goals against Everton in April showcased his talent.

Ollie Watkins

Watkins has been great for Aston Villa since Unai Emery became the manager. He’ll be Kane’s backup at the Euros, ending the Premier League season with the most assists and joint-fourth most goals.

Anthony Gordon

The Newcastle winger had a strong season, making his senior debut against Brazil. The increase in the squad size for the tournament from 23 to 26 players benefited him, especially in a competitive position on the pitch.

Ivan Toney

The Brentford striker is probably the third-choice striker behind Kane and Watkins. He returned from a betting ban with four goals and earned an immediate recall to the squad for March’s friendlies, where he scored against Belgium.

Jarrod Bowen

Bowen had a great season at West Ham and has shown promising attacking skills in his England appearances so far. He’ll provide valuable backup for Saka on the right wing.
