  • Manchester United say Greenwood has ‘underlying injury’
  • Southampton and West Ham midfielders cut from final 26

England’s squad for Euro 2020 began to take shape on Tuesday morning when Mason Greenwood withdrew to “recover fully from an underlying injury” and James Ward-Prowse and Jesse Lingard were informed they would not be in the final 26.

All three players were in Gareth Southgate’s provisional 33-man squad that is being trimmed on Tuesday. The omission of Ward-Prowse suggests the England manager is confident regarding the fitness of Jordan Henderson. Lingard excelled at West Ham after joining on loan from United but has not done enough to earn a place at the European Championship.

Greenwood played for United in the Europa League final last week, being replaced by Fred 10 minutes into extra time. United said the unspecified injury had also prevented Greenwood from going to the Under-21 European Championship in March.

“Mason’s club appearances were managed carefully to maintain his availability through the intensive 2020-21 Premier League and Europa League schedules,” United said. “But a further spell of tournament football would not be beneficial and Mason will remain at Manchester United to recuperate and prepare for pre-season training.”
