England’s squad for Euro 2020 delayed for a week
Gareth Southgate was supposed to announce today the list with the call-ups for the final tournament.
Today it was the day that everyone was very anxious for, to find out who will be in England team for the Euro 2020 that will start on 11th of June but today will only be announed a provisional squad.
Gareth Southgate‘s decision is based on the fact that there are still left to play the two finals that involve three Premier League clubs and therefore he will make his final decision on next Tuesday, June 1.
Any room for surprises?
Injured Nick Pope (Burnley) will most likely be replaced by Sam Johnstone from West Bromwich while the call-up of Liverpool captain, Jordan Henderson is still questionable as he still lack the fitness after his long lay-off following groin surgery.
On the right back position it is probably the biggest competition with five players that Southgate has to choose from, Kieran Trippier (Atletico Madrid) , Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Kyle Walker (Man City), Reece James (Chelsea) and Aaron Wan-Bissaka (Man Utd).
The Dortmund couple of Jude Bellingham and Jadon Sancho are likely to be included.
Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips will be fit after treatment on his damaged right shoulder.
