Southgate named a provisional 33-man squad last week but had to cut that down to 26 before the tournament which starts on Friday, June 11.

Aaron Ramsdale, Ben Godfrey, Ben White, James Ward-Prowse, Jesse Lingard, Ollie Watkins and the injured Mason Greenwood are the seven who have been left out.

Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold has been included despite being left out of the squad for March’s internationals.
