England to call up shock player to provisional Euro 2024 squad who bookmakers weren't even offering odds on

England to call up shock player to provisional Euro 2024 squad who bookmakers weren't even offering odds on

Bookmakers weren't even offering odds.

Gareth Southgate is set to call up a shock player to his England squad who bookmakers weren't even offering odds on.

Southgate will announce his provision squad for England's Euro 2024 campaign on Tuesday afternoon, but earlier in the day there were plenty of reports about who is and isn't going to make the cut.

Southgate's provisional squad will be around 30 players, but there reportedly won't be space for Jordan Henderson or Raheem Sterling.

There is expected to be a call up for uncapped Liverpool midfielder Curtis Jones, as well as a recall for Bayern Munich man Eric Dier, who hasn't been in an England squad since the 2022 World Cup.

Bookmakers have been offering odds on which players will be selected, with some rogue shouts given staggeringly large odds.

According to OddsChecker, Bournemouth and England U21s midfielder Alex Scott has odds of 40/1, while Chelsea attacker Carney Chukwuemeka and West Ham defender Ben Johnson are at 66/1.

As reported by journalist Paul Joyce, Southgate will hand a shock call-up for Liverpool defender Jarell Quansah.

The 21-year-old made 34 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring three goals including one against Wolves on the final day of the season.

A call up for Quansah seemed so unlikely that bookmakers weren't even offering odds on him being selected.

Southgate will cut his squad down to 26 players after England's warm-up games against Bosnia & Herzegovina and Iceland on June 2 and 7 respectively.

The Daily Mail has reported that Crystal Palace quartet Marc Guehi, Dean Henderson, Eberechi Eze and Adam Wharton will all be selected, with Burnley goalkeeper James Trafford also set to be involved along with Brentford striker Ivan Toney.

Everton defender Jarrad Branthwaite and Manchester United pair Kobbie Mainoo and Luke Shaw are expected to be included in the squad, with Chelsea full-backs Ben Chillwell and Reece James to miss out.
