Gareth Southgate says two uncapped players could still make England's Euro 2024 squad

Gareth Southgate says two uncapped players could still make England's Euro 2024 squad

England will head into Euro 2024 as one of the favourites to go all the way

Gareth Southgate has hinted that two uncapped players could still force their way into his England squad for Euro 2024.

Heading into next summer’s tournament in Germany, England will be one of the favourites to go all the way.

Three years ago, Southgate’s men were beaten on penalties by Italy in front of a packed crowd inside Wembley Stadium.

Next summer, the Three Lions will be aiming to go one better and bring home the trophy.

Speaking in a recent interview with Sky Sports, Southgate hinted that a couple of uncapped players could work their way into the final squad.

He said: “I think there are one or two players that haven't been capped yet that could still make the summer.

“I'd be certain about that. It should be harder to get in the team now. We're established, we're not an ageing squad, so this team isn't going to suddenly drop after this next tournament.”

Southgate added: “Our young players if you're talking 23 and lower, some of them have got 20-30 caps already. So actually we're where we've wanted to be for 10 years.

“Pride is something we all have, that's the honour of representing England. That's why I wanted to make English football better when I came here to work on youth development, when I came here to work with the U21s.


“The dream is always to be winning the trophy that we haven't had for an increasing number of years now. Yes, we've had the first semi-final for however long. We had the first final for however long. We're still trying to break history here because we've never been to a final away from England, we've never won a European Championship, so we are trying to break barriers down all the time.

“Good decisions are what's required. Players playing well, everybody committed to the cause, everybody sacrificing themselves for the group. That's how we'll win. We know we're capable because we've been so close. It's eminently possible.”
