England Manager Gareth Southgate Cuts Two Players from His European Championship Squad

Gareth Southgate began narrowing down his final England squad ahead of the European Championship on Thursday by cutting James Maddison and Curtis Jones from his provisional 33-man selection.

The Three Lions have one more game before the Euros begin in Germany on June 14 and Southgate must name his final lineup of up to 26 players by Saturday.

Maddison and Curtis have departed England’s pre-tournament training camp before Friday’s final warmup game against Iceland at Wembley Stadium.

“We thank them for being an important part of our pre-tournament preparation,” the English Football Association said in a statement Thursday.

Tottenham playmaker Maddison was part of England’s squad at the 2022 World Cup, while Jones has impressed for Liverpool this season.

Southgate must make calls on the fitness of defenders Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw and Lewis Dunk following injuries.

All three were undergoing individual training programs on Thursday, the FA said.
