England have named their 26-man squad for this summer’s European Championship. They are one of the leading contenders with a strong squad assembled.

Gareth Southgate’s team will play a number of matches on home soil at Wembley, and the one-year postponement of the tournament due to Covid has given England’s young talent extra time to develop.

When are the semi-final and final? 

The semi-finals and final are at Wembley. The semis will be on July 6 and 7 while the final will be on Sunday July 11. 

Who is in the England squad?

Gareth Southgate has surprisingly included Ben White in his final squad for the Euros as a replacement for the injured Trent Alexander-Arnold.

The news comes as a blow to James Ward-Prowse and Jesse Lingard who are the two senior players to miss out. The England manager has also decided against Ben Godfrey and Ollie Watkins who were also on his stand-by list along with goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale.

White’s inclusion followed the Brighton defender, who made his debut against Austria last Wednesday, playing the full 90 minutes in England’s last warm-up match against Romania on Sunday.

The 23-year-old played at centre-half but his versatility means he can also play in midfield – which is where he featured when he came on against Austria.

It was in that fixture that Alexander-Arnold suffered the thigh injury that rules him out of the tournament.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson made his injury return against Romania but Harry Maguire is still stepping up his return to fitness following the ankle ligament injury which ended his season with Manchester United early.

United teammate Mason Greenwood earlier withdrew from England contention “in order to recover fully from an underlying injury.”
