    Notable players were left off the roster as England manager Gareth Southgate revealed the preliminary team for the European Championship (UEFA EURO 2024) on Tuesday.

    England’s initial lineup for the summer’s EURO 2024, which starts in June in Germany, was revealed on Instagram.

    Southgate did not choose Chelsea winger Raheem Sterling, Ajax midfielder Jordan Henderson, or Manchester United attacker Marcus Rashford.

    Furthermore, the Three Lions’ original squad did not feature striker Jadon Sancho of Borussia Dortmund.

    Anthony Gordon of Newcastle United appears to have benefited from Rashford and Sterling’s absence, as he might win his third cap for England.

    In addition, at 33 years old, it may be Henderson’s final opportunity to don the national team uniform.

    Adam Wharton, a teenage midfielder for Crystal Palace, may have made his first international debut as a result of his drop-off.

    The other uncapped players in the preliminary team are Burnley goalkeeper James Trafford, Everton’s Jarrad Branthwaite, and Liverpool’s Curtis Jones and Jarell Quansah.

    The runners-up for EURO 2020, England, announced that on June 8 they will unveil their final 26-man team for EURO 2024.

    The tentative England team is as follows:

    Goalkeepers: James Trafford (Burnley), Aaron Ramsdale (Arsenal), Jordan Pickford (Everton), and Dean Henderson (Crystal Palace).

    Midfielders: Adam Wharton (Crystal Palace), Declan Rice (Arsenal), Kobbie Mainoo (Manchester United), Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Conor Gallagher (Chelsea), and Curtis Jones (Liverpool).
