Fans spot what Ben White was doing while England's Euro 2024 squad was being announced

Fans spot what Ben White was doing while England's Euro 2024 squad was being announced

The Arsenal star was again not selected by England.

Fans spotted what Arsenal star Ben White did while England's final 26-man squad for Euro 2024 was announced on Thursday.

White - who would be a guaranteed pick based solely on form for his club side - was not named in England's provisional squad for the tournament.

The defender hasn't played for the Three Lions since 2022, with The Telegraph reporting that this stems from an exchange between White and England assistant Steve Holland in which Holland questioned the defender's passion for football.

Manager Gareth Southgate revealed before March's international fixtures that he had taken a call from Arsenal sporting director Edu, who confirmed that White was not available for selection for that particular squad.

A similar approach appears to have been taken this time around, with the Arsenal right-back not named or even mentioned as part of England's Euro 2024 squad - except for a brief comment from Southgate during his press conference last month.

When asked about White, Southgate replied: "No [he's not selected]. As far as I am aware, he's not available to us."

White's non-inclusion has come further under the microscope given England's defensive injury issues, with the former Brighton academy graduate able to play at right-back, centre-back and even at defensive midfield if required.

But as a result of his non-selection, White was on holiday while Southgate named his final squad - with his wife uploading a photo of the pair to her Instagram account.

The 25-year-old recently signed a new long-term Arsenal contract which will keep him at the club until at least 2029.

After signing the deal, he told the club's official YouTube channel: "It's been a long journey, and amazing to sign again and be here for more years.

"Yeah of course [it was an easy decision]. I said before, I don't want to be anywhere else - it's perfect. I feel really proud, and it's a really good achievement.

"It's the first time I've been back-to-back [seasons at one club] and stayed there, so it was probably then when I realised that I'm here to stay, and to play."
