Anger as Gareth Southgate names provisional England Euro 2020 squad

There has been anger from fans on social media as Gareth Southgate names the much anticipated provisional England Euro 2020 squad.

He has revealed the initial 33-man team ahead of games against which will see the Three Lions take on Austria and Romania before this summer’s tournament.

The boss was expected to name his final 26-man squad for the Euros on Tuesday, but the Football Association confirmed on Monday that it will be a provisional squad of 30, which will be trimmed down to 26 next Tuesday.

This is because a couple of Premier League players still have injury concerns and several of those set to be picked still have another game to play with their clubs, with the Europa League and Champions League finals taking place over the next few days.


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

Defenders: Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Ben Chilwell (Chelsea), Conor Coady (Wolves), Ben Godfrey (Everton), 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), Ben White (Brighton)

Midfielders: Jude Bellingham (Borussia Dortmund), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Jesse Lingard (West Ham), Mason Mount (Chelsea), Kalvin Phillips (Leeds), Declan Rice (West Ham), James Ward-Prowse (Southampton)

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

Fans reacted with, some with anger and others not so as Gareth Southgate names the provisional England Euro 2020 squad…

@89_Benjii: Should be Dunk if anyone from Brighton

@ExpectedChelsea: Ben Godfrey, Ben White, Tyrone Mings and Conor Coady making the provisional squad over Fikayo Tomori is a farce to say the least. Tarkowski and a few others unlucky to miss out too. The CB selections are very weird.

@LukeKing_: How isn’t Konsa there ffs

@MaxGarfield2003: Konsa might as well declare for Portugal now. Happy for Godfrey, but gutted for Tomori and Konsa

@George_Avfc_: Should of been konsa what a joke

@samjtonks7: A 33 man squad just screams, bottling decisions a bit longer, just get the 26 done a couple friendlies shouldn’t decide a place in a tournament when you’ve had a whole season to choose #ThreeLions

@samjackson23: 4 right backs is a joke. Bamford could have scored 30 and Southgate would have still picked his favorites. Only positive is hes left Dier at home

@ChildishAlbeeno: How does the second-highest English goalscorer of the Premier League season get overlooked for the provisional (provisional!) England squad? @Patrick_Bamford has been hugely disrespected and I’m gutted for him. #lufc

@GC_NFFC: I’m happy with that squad apart from the defence Tomori and Konsa should be in the squad Imo instead of someone like Coady and Mings that’s just my opinion tho #EURO2020 #ThreeLions

@LeeScott321: For Bamford to not even make the provisional squad just shows how clueless Southgate is , 2nd highest English goal scorer & 7 assists #lufc #threelions

@UtdDyl: Konsa, Tomori and AWB might as well change nations.

@Dan_Walls_: I think Ben White is a great player. But how is Tomori being over looked? Had a superb season at AC Milan.

@jamiescott251: Should of picked @Patrick_Bamford

@bally2002: Southgate does not deserve this squad 🤦‍♂️ tomori should be involved in this provisional, whether he would go or not is different but should definitely be included

@LFCMaxs: How the fuck do you still employ Southgate with that centre back selection 😭

@Culturecams: I told people James Maddison had 0% chance of making the euros from early

@mufc_jord: What about tomori oh I forgot he’s not playing in England so he can’t be good

@markgoldbridge: No issues with that expanded England squad. AWB was never getting in and Maddison isn’t above Grealish, Mount, Foden or Lingard
