The squad is a testament to Southgate’s trust in a blend of seasoned internationals and emerging stars. The likes of Harry Kane, now plying his trade at Bayern Munich, and Jude Bellingham at Real Madrid, are set to provide the spine of the team, while the youthful zest of Bukayo Saka and Phil Foden is expected to inject dynamism into the Three Lions’ play.

The selection process was not without its difficult decisions, as high-profile omissions were made. Notably, Jack Grealish and Harry Maguire were left out, the latter hinting at ongoing recovery from a calf injury⁵. The squad’s depth, however, remains formidable, with players like Declan Rice and Trent Alexander-Arnold coming off strong seasons with their clubs.

As England prepares for their final warm-up match against Iceland at Wembley, the squad’s focus is firmly on their opening Euro game against Serbia in Gelsenkirchen. With the nation’s hopes resting on their shoulders, Southgate’s men are ready to write a new chapter in England’s storied football history.

This is England’s moment. This is their summer. The stage is set for the Three Lions to roar.
