Wed 02 June 2021 | 19:04

Gareth Southgate has announced England’s squad for Euro 2020.

England

head coach has named his 25 men for the Euro 2020 tournament, and

Alan Smith

has commented on the important parts of the squad ahead of the Euro 2020 kick-off.

Mason Greenwood, Ben Godfrey, Jesse Lingard, Aaron Ramsdale, James Ward-Prowse, Ollie Watkins, Ben White are the names missing on the

Southgate’s

list, and Bukayo Saka, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Harry Maguire, and Jordan Henderson are the ones making it to the national team squad despite the doubts.

Here is the full list of the England players:

Goalkeepers: Dean Henderson (Manchester United), Sam Johnstone (West Brom), Jordan Pickford (Everton).

Defenders: Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Ben Chilwell (Chelsea), Conor Coady (Wolves), Reece James (Chelsea), Harry Maguire (Manchester United), Tyrone Mings (Aston Villa), Luke Shaw (Manchester United), John Stones (Manchester City), Kieran Trippier (Atletico Madrid), Kyle Walker (Manchester City).

Midfielders: Jude Bellingham (Borussia Dortmund), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Mason Mount (Chelsea), Kalvin Phillips (Leeds), Declan Rice (West Ham).

Forwards: Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton), Phil Foden (Man City), Jack Grealish (Aston Villa), Harry Kane (Tottenham), Marcus Rashford (Manchester United), Bukayo Saka (Arsenal), Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund), Raheem Sterling (Man City).

Allan Smith insists that Saka was a good choice because of his impressive performances for the out-of-form Arsenal, helping them to gain points in some games but thinks that Lingard\s absence had a part in collecting him.

The former England star has also commented on some other choices Southgate has made, but in general, it seems like the England squad is accepted by the well-known pundit.
