Southgate drops Maddison from England’s Final 26 Man Squad for Euros 2024

James Maddison has been left out of England's final squad for Euro 2024

LONDON|James Maddison has been left out of England’s 26-player squad for Euro 2024 and has departed the Three Lions camp.

The Tottenham midfielder is the first name from Gareth Southgate’s 33-player provisional squad to not make the final cut for the tournament in Germany.

Southgate has to cut his extended squad down to 26 names by 11pm on Friday – an hour after England’s final Euro 2024 warm-up friendly against Iceland at Wembley.

England then begin their Euro 2024 campaign on June 16 against Serbia.

Maddison’s wait for a major tournament appearance with England goes on, having made the final 26 2022 World Cup squad in Qatar – but he failed to make an appearance before the Three Lions’ quarter-final exit.
