One year after the date they were originally scheduled to take place, the European Championships will finally take place in June.
England will kick off their Euro 2021 campaign with a 2018 World Cup semi-final rematch against Croatia at Wembley on June 13.
There is a lot of football to be played by the end of the season, with injuries likely to still play a part in the final selection.
When will the England squad be announced?
Gareth Southgate is expected to name his 23-man squad on May 24, the Monday following the end of the Premier League season.
What is the deadline for the team announcement?
England don’t have to name their squad so soon, however. The deadline for the UEFA team is 10 days before the start of the tournament on 1 June.
Who is likely to be chosen by Gareth Southgate?
Southgate has a huge range of options at its disposal. Mike McGrath chose his team on a weekly basis. In form, Jesse Lingard has now made his way into the 23, here’s why:
Another weekend where he made an irresistible bargain to go to the Euros. His first goal against Leicester showed just how confident he is at the moment. He wouldn’t have taken the first end a few months ago. Jude Bellingham, who really should have gone to the Under-21 Euro in Slovenia rather than playing a half-game against San Marino in the last break, could be the one missing.
Bukayo Saka also gets the nod:
Hit in the thigh after a decent performance at Sheffield United. England players felt it was important for him to join the squad for a few days before returning to Arsenal for treatment. It showed he was part of Southgate’s plans and wanted in team meetings when he had no chance to play. His versatility will be important because he can play from the back to the attacker. At Bramall Lane, he played No.10.
