7 players axed by England – Final 26-man squad now clear ahead of Euro 2024

Gareth Southgate looks set to cut Jack Grealish, Harry Maguire, James Maddison, Jarrad Branthwaite, James Trafford, Curtis Jones and Jarrell Quansah from his England squad, meaning Anthony Gordon and Kieran Trippier will make the final 26 for Euro 2024.

After selecting a provisional 33-man squad last month, seven players were always going to be axed ahead of tomorrow’s UEFA deadline. Here’s the final 26-man squad based on the seven expected to miss out:

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

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

Midfielders: Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Jude Bellingham (Real Madrid), Eberechi Eze (Crystal Palace), Phil Foden (Manchester City), Conor Gallagher (Chelsea), Kobbie Mainoo (Manchester United), Declan Rice (Arsenal), Adam Wharton (Crystal Palace),

Forwards: Jarrod Bowen (West Ham), Anthony Gordon (Newcastle), Harry Kane (Bayern Munich), Cole Palmer (Chelsea), Bukayo Saka (Arsenal), Ivan Toney (Brentford), Ollie Watkins (Aston Villa).

It’s bad news for Newcastle-linked Trafford and Branthwaite, who will be gutted to miss out after Maguire’s injury, but brilliant news for Gordon; who is back in training today after overcoming an ankle issue.

Maddison is a surprise to some, but the former Toon target ended the season poorly, allowing in-form Palace star Ebere Eze to make it instead.
