Over To Southgate As Premier League Season Ends

Last updated : 23 May 2021 By Three Lions

Gareth Southgate will name his England squad for Euro 2020 on Tuesday after taking in the final round of Premier League matches on Sunday.

The Three Lions boss was in attendance at Villa Park to see Jack Grealish and Ollie Watkins in action as the home side defeated Chelsea while his scouts would have been out and about across the country as the final make-up of the tournament party looms ever closer.

Southgate can name a 26-man squad (although he has said that the increased size could cause managers a problem in keeping all of their players happy) and the options at his disposal are a far cry from Russia 2018 when the only headlines he made with his selections were the omissions of Joe Hart and Jack Wilshere.

He will have been pleased to see Harry Kane on the scoresheet on Sunday, will be awaiting the latest on Harry Maguire's fitness and crossing fingers that the England contingent playing in the Europa and Champions League Finals come through the big games unscathed.

Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope is a doubt after missing his side's run-in and will undergo what has been described as a 'minor' operation on his knee this week.

"It's nothing too serious, we don't think, but it still needed doing," Burnley manager Sean Dyche told BT Sport.
