Gareth Southgate will further withdraw more players before the tournament starts.

The stars of Liverpool, Curtis Jones and Jarell Quansah, were left out of Gareth Southgate’s England team for the 2024 European Championship. Southgate still needs to trim down the squad to a 26-man roster.

The two are going to be eliminated from the England squad before the event, along with seven other participants. Southgate notified Jones in the last few days and Quansah is also anticipated to be sidelined.

James Maddison, a star for Tottenham, was the first player left out of the roster on Wednesday. The 27-year-old has departed from the camp already. Tomorrow night, England will play Iceland and then Southgate will make his final selections.

Ollie Watkins is the favourite player for Monday’s match against Bosnia and Herzegovina while Brentford striker Ivan Toney is presently squirming over his starting spot.

In 17 Premier League games after his return from a gambling ban in January, Toney managed just four goals. Furthermore, Harry Kane, the all-time best goal scorer for England, is expected to start against Iceland, meaning he will probably play a few minutes.

Next weekend marks the start of the Three Lions’ Euro 2024 quest against Serbia. In the group stages, they will be joined by Slovenia and Denmark.

Following their 3-0 victory over Bosnia on Monday, Southgate stated:

“We understand the significance for all of the players so we’re giving it the respect and attention it deserves to make fair, right decisions. Of course, it’s always going to be subjective.

“It’s not just getting the best individuals in, there’s a positional element to that as well. We’ve got really good options and I think we’ve come through tonight without any physical issues, which is really important.”

The England manager continued: “Some players needed the game, they needed the minutes and they need the minutes again on Friday. That’s why we brought Harry Kane on. He needed some match time today and then to back that up.

“We’re spinning a lot of plates trying to get individuals into things, manage minutes, perform well and everything else, but I think it was a good night for us.”
