Euro 2024 squads latest news

Out with the old and in with the new for England

Gareth Southgate named his final 26-man England squad on Thursday evening, with seven cut from the original 33. Among those to not have made it are Jack Grealish and James Maddison, part of the old guard but not in good enough form to take on the plane, while Harry Maguire is injured and will not be risked.

Among the new names in the squad is Adam Wharton, who was playing in the Championship in the first half of the season and only earned his first senior England cap against Bosnia and Herzegovina on Monday night. Perhaps Southgate is going in a different direction as a final hurrah with his contract up at the end of the year, as the Three Lions look to go one better as they agonisingly lost in the final on penalties to Italy at Euro 2020.

Spalletti wields axe with a new-look Italy

Speaking of Italy, Luciano Spalletti had a few surprises in store when he announced his preliminary 30-man Italy squad, with the big talking point was the omission of frequent international fixtures, including Leonardo Spinazzola, Manuel Locatelli, Domenico Berardi, Ciro Immobile and Matteo Politano. Indeed, his initial shortlist included a trio of uncapped players: Ivan Provedel, Riccardo Calafiori and Michael Folorunsho.

The reigning Euros champions announced their final 26-man squad on Thursday, with uncapped Provedel one of the unlucky ones to get cut. Francesco Acerbi and Giorgio Scalvini had already pulled out through injury, but Riccardo Orsolini and Samuele Ricci also made way, with Juventus defender Federico Gatti being a late addition.

Nagelsmann makes U-turn on Germany goalkeeper decision

Julian Nagelsmann had previously announced in advance that he would like to take four goalkeepers to the Euros, but has now gone back on that after cutting Alexander Nubel from his provisional 27-man squad on Friday. This means that the Germany head coach will take only three goalkeepers to the tournament.

It is a tough one for Nubel to take, given that he enjoyed an impressive season with VfB Stuttgart, as they finished second in the Bundesliga ahead of traditional heavyweights Bayern Munich. Manuel Neuer should continue to be Germany's number one and Marc-Andre ter Stegen is an excellent deputy, but perhaps there was still a place for Nubel ahead of Oliver Baumann.

Spain axe three in final squad shake-up

Luis de la Fuente also announced his final 26-man squad on Friday, with three players on the chopping block for Spain. The unlucky trio to miss out are Pau Cubarsi, Aleix Garcia and Marcos Llorente.

Cubarsi is perhaps the biggest surprise omission as he impressed in Spain's recent 5-0 friendly win against Andorra, grabbing himself an assist on his senior international debut. Nonetheless, Spain will be hoping to win their first Euros in 12 years, where their golden generation famously won three consecutive major tournaments between 2008-12 (Euro 2008, 2010 FIFA World Cup and Euro 2012).
