England names 26 players for Euro 2020

LONDON, June 1 (Xinhua) -- England manager Gareth Southgate announced on Tuesday the Three Lions' 26-man squad for this summer's European Football Championship.

A few hours before the announcement, Manchester United revealed that their 19-year-old striker Mason Greenwood has withdrawn from the 33-man provisional squad due to an underlying injury.

Harry Maguire from Manchester United and Liverpool's Jordan Henderson are both included despite injury concerns.

Southgate has selected 10 defenders but only five midfield players. Manchester City duo Phil Foden and Raheem Sterling are among the eight forwards.

England's EURO 2020 campaign will start on June 13 with a match against Croatia at Wembley in London. Then the Three Lions will face Scotland and Czech at the same stadium.
