Euro 2020 - Gareth Southgate to name squad for 2021 finals on Tuesday, Trent Alexander-Arnold 'set to be included'
England national team manager Gareth Southgate will announce a 30-strong provisional squad for this year's rearranged 2020 European Championships tournament.

The former Middlesbrough manager has concerns over Harry Maguire, the Manchester United captain, as he is still suffering from an ankle ligament injury that could keep him out of his club’s Europa League final with Villarreal on Wednesday night in Gdansk.
Next weekend will see Manchester City face Chelsea in Porto in the Champions League final, meaning there is scope for fresh injuries to change Southgate’s plans.
Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope is to undergo minor knee surgery, according to his club manager Sean Dyche, and Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has a minor problem. Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips suffered a shoulder injury against West Brom in the final game of the season.
