England's final 23-man squad for Euro 2024 predicted by bookmakers as key players left out

England's final 23-man squad for Euro 2024 predicted by bookmakers as key players left out

England will head into Euro 2024 as one of the favourites to win the tournament

The bookmakers have predicted England’s Euro 2024 squad as Gareth Southgate’s men aim for glory in Germany next summer.

Last time out, Southgate’s Three Lions were agonisingly beaten by Italy on penalties in the Euro 2020 final in front of a packed crowd inside Wembley Stadium.

Ahead of next year’s tournament, England secured their place in Euro 2024 after beating Italy 3-1 last month.

With qualification now secured, the attention will naturally switch to what players Southgate will pick for his 23-man squad.

We have decided to look on the betting website Sky Bet to see which players are tipped to be included in the squad.

Having gone over every position on the pitch, the players tipped to be picked by Southgate are:

Goalkeepers -

Jordan Pickford, Aaron Ramsdale, Sam Johnstone.

Defenders -

John Stones, Kyle Walker, Luke Shaw, Harry Maguire, Kieran Trippier, Ben Chilwell, Levi Colwill, Marc Guehi.

Midfielders -

Declan Rice, Jude Bellingham, Kalvin Phillips, James Maddison, Mason Mount, Eberechi Eze.

Forwards -

Bukayo Saka, Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford, Jack Grealish, Phil Foden, Callum Wilson.

There are some noticeable absentees in the above squad, for example, Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold, Chelsea’s Reece James and West Ham forward Jarrod Bowen.

Despite having better odds to be included than the likes of Colwill and Guehi, Alexander-Arnold and James are left out due to the fact that if they were included, England would have six full-backs and only two centre-backs.


However, in recent squads, Alexander-Arnold has been named as a midfielder and could sneak in ahead of Eze.

England boss Southgate named his latest squad on Thursday ahead of the Euro 2024 qualifiers against Malta and North Macedonia.

After announcing his squad, Southgate fired a stern warning to James after he declined his England call-up.

The Three Lions boss said: “I was hoping to call up Reece James but he doesn’t feel he’s quite ready.

“I understand that, he’s had a long path back from a number of injuries. He’s probably a bit cautious in that respect, but I can understand why.

“There is (a lot of talent ahead of James) and that’s the risk. He’s only got one more squad before the Euros. So he knows that. We’ve got belief in what he can do.”
