What are your thoughts on the England Euros squad?

It's like Southgate is deliberately trolling all those people who think that he just picks his favourites.

No Henderson, no Maguire or Grealish. He's gone for young players and players on form for their clubs.

I agree with all of those decisions. My one disagreement is that Luke Shaw is the only specialist left back and he has just recovered from injury. Trippier is not the answer at left back because he's 33 and right footed.

This is a pretty strong squad, though France and Germany are favourites.
I think it's fair. Maguire is injured, Grealish and Rashford didn't have good seasons, Henderson is a little in the wilderness. I like the idea of bedding in young players in major tournaments as part of future building too, plus form always has to be a factor. We've turned up to tournaments in the past with a host of our star names and have gone precisely nowhere. The golden generation won nothing. Just going on reputation and same old is not the answer.
Southgate, in general, gets his squad right. A World Cup semi final, a first international final since 1966, and a quarter-final exit to a superior team, all in less than a decade, are not to be sniffed at!

He said his decision was based on current form; the end of a long season and potential injury carrying going into the tournament.

Which I suppose is either Southgate personally wanting the freshest legs available.
Or was under pressure from the big clubs/Premier league/FA/Players Union....not to select the players desperately required for the start of the new season until the players themselves had signed contracts agreeing to stay post tournament.

Either way, watch out for our likely second round exit.

I don't care about the England squad. I like Spain, and some of the German football players play well and are very hot

I would also support my country if they had not been banned from this and other tournaments.

I don’t think it’s a strong squad. So weak defensively. I think they’ll do well to get out of the group.
