Southgate To Choose 26-Player Euro Squad

Last updated : 27 April 2021 By Three Lions

Uefa will allow teams at Euro 2020 to select bigger than usual tournament squads, allowing Gareth Southgate and his fellow managers to choose 26 players instead of the usual 23.

The move has been made to take into account what has been a congested season at club and international level and to allow countries more scope to make changes during the competition itself.

Five substitions will be allowed during matches.
