Tue 01 June 2021 | 10:04

The Red Devils starlet won’t play for England in the upcoming competition due to ‘underlying injury’.

Mason Greenwood

was named in

England

’s provisional 33-man squad ahead of the Euros.

Gareth Southgate

will announce his final 26-player list on Tuesday, but Greenwood will be absent in the Three Lions squad. The decision has been made to allow the 19-year-old to recover from ‘an underlying injury’.

Manchester United

published a

statement

about the player’s situation on Tuesday:

“Manchester United striker Mason Greenwood has withdrawn from the provisional England Euro 2020 squad, in order to recover fully from an underlying injury that also kept him out of the Under-21 European Championship in March.

“Mason’s club appearances were managed carefully to maintain his availability through the intensive 2020-21 Premier League and Europa League schedules.

“But a further spell of tournament football would not be beneficial and Mason will remain at Manchester United to recuperate and prepare for pre-season training.”

Greenwood was called up to the national team in September, but he was sent home from Iceland after breaking COVID-19 protocols. With the teenager’s withdrawal, Southgate has to exclude six other players from the provisional list.
