GOOD MORNING EUROS FANS,
Gareth Southgate has shelved plans to name his final Euros squad today.
The England boss will instead reveal a provisional group at lunchtime before finalising his 26-man tournament picks next Tuesday.
Southgate delayed his final choices because of the number of Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United players involved in the two European club finals.
It will also give Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson extra time to work on his fitness after his long lay-off following groin surgery.
But his Reds team-mate Trent Alexander-Arnold is still sweating over his place.
The 22-year-old was not selected for the three World Cup qualifiers in March due to his loss of form.
Despite an improved end to the season, he has struggled to convince Southgate despite his offensive strengths.
Now the Three Lions boss must make big decisions on his right-backs with Chelsea’s Reece James also at risk.
West Brom keeper Sam Johnstone is set to replace injured Burnley star Nick Pope.
The Dortmund duo of Jude Bellingham and Jadon Sancho are likely to be included.
Meanwhile, Jordan Henderson expects to be fit to lead England at next month’s European Championships.
He said: “I was itching to get on. But I have only trained a few times with the team so it wasn’t the wisest thing to do!
“I feel good. I have been training the last few weeks on my own
“Now I need team training and hopefully I can be fit for the Euros. Fingers crossed. That is my target.
“I have been working hard in the background. I feel good but I have to go and train with England and be ready for the Euros.”
And finally, John Barnes claims Jack Grealish is a huge doubt to make England’s Euro squad after his recent injury woes.
He told BonusCodeBets: “Grealish hasn’t played for a few months so it’s going to be difficult for him to really say he’s done enough to get picked for the Euros squad.
“Particularly if you are talking about his position whereby you have James Maddison, Mason Mount and other attacking midfielders who can play in that position.
“If England were struggling for other players in that position, then maybe we could take a chance on him.
“But with so many players already playing in that position, you shouldn’t have to drop other players into different positions to accommodate Grealish.”
