Lingard cut from England Euro squad

West Ham United loanee Jesse Lingard has been cut from Gareth Southgate’s 26-man squad selected ahead of the Euro 2020 tournament starting this month.

Lingard ran into a rich vein of form after arriving at the London Stadium in February from Manchester United – the 29-year-old netting nine times in sixteen appearances for David Moyes’ charges.

The Warrington-born players’ form earned him a recall from England in March and Southgate pencilled him into the Three Lions provisional 33-squad. However, despite England’s lack of firepower, Lingard will miss out on the tournament, although he will play in Wednesday’s friendly with Austria at Middlesbrough’s Riverside Stadium,

England’s 26-man Euro 2020 squad in full is as follows;

Goalkeepers: Dean Henderson (Manchester United), Sam Johnstone (West Bromwich Albion), Jordan Pickford (Everton)

Defenders: John Stones (Manchester City), Luke Shaw (Manchester United), Harry Maguire (Manchester United), Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Kyle Walker (Manchester City), Tyrone Mings (Aston Villa), Reece James (Chelsea), Conor Coady (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Ben Chilwell (Chelsea), Kieran Trippier (Atletico Madrid)

Midfielders: Mason Mount (Chelsea), Declan Rice (West Ham United), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Jude Bellingham (Borussia Dortmund), Kalvin Phillips (Leeds United)

Forwards: Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur), Marcus Rashford (Manchester United), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City), Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton), Phil Foden (Manchester City), Jack Grealish (Aston Villa), Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund), Bukayo Saka (Arsenal)
