Gareth Southgate has selected his 26-man England team for Euro 2024 which includes surprise names such as Adam Wharton, Eberechi Eze, Kobbie Mainoo, Lewis Dunk, and Jarrod Bowen. There have been a number of injuries that have hampered the England squad but the manager believes they have the right alternative and can get the job done against the best of teams. 

Manchester United player Luke Shaw has reached the final 26-man squad, with England boss Gareth Southgate saying that the left-back may be available for the Three Lions' final group game against Denmark on June 20. Manchester United youngster Kobbie Mainoo, who earned his international debut versus Brazil in March, has also been named, while Southgate has chosen Ivan Toney and Ollie Watkins as Harry Kane's deputies. 

England will probably be hoping for a victorious send-off against Iceland tonight, in front of a packed Wembley Stadium. On Monday, they defeated Bosnia-Herzegovina 3-0 in their first warm-up match. Gareth Southgate is anticipated to field a stronger XI this evening, with skipper Harry Kane likely to return after getting off the sidelines on Monday.

If a player is injured or becomes ill, England are able to make late substitutions to their team until their first Euros game against Serbia on June 16, although goalkeepers can be replaced throughout the course of the tournament. However, there are some names that did not make it to the squad and would be watching the tournament from home.

Gareth Southgate, England football national team manager, has frequently been accused of neglecting form when building squads in the past. It is an accusation that cannot be leveled against him regarding the team he assembled for UEFA Euro 2024 in Germany.
