Jordan Henderson and Marcus Rashford are among the notable absentees not included in Gareth Southgate’s provisional 33-man England squad for Euro 2024.

Southgate has picked a 33-man provisional squad for this summer’s European Championships.

Henderson and Rashford out, Wharton and Grealish in…

The England squad is expected to whittle down his squad to 26 players after friendlies against Bosnia (June 3) and Iceland (June 7). Their first Euro 2024 group match is against Serbia on June 16.

The England boss has opted to leave out several players who have consistently been called upon during his time in charge, with Henderson and Rashford not making the cut.

Henderson has slipped down the pecking order following last summer’s move to Saudi Pro League side Al-Ettifaq. His January switch to Ajax and subsequent underwhelming form has resulted in the 33-year-old missing out.

Rashford will also not be heading to Germany after he declined massively during the 2023/24 campaign. Chelsea duo Reece James and Ben Chilwill miss out after being blighted by injuries, while teammate Raheem Sterling also failed to make the squad.

Uncapped Liverpool pair Jarell Quansah and Curtis Jones are also in, but there isn’t a place for Harvey Elliott.

Other notable inclusions are Ivan Toney, James Maddison, Jack Grealish, Kobbie Mainoo, Luke Shaw and Aaron Ramsdale.
