Euro 2024: Jones and Quansah latest to miss out on England squad

Liverpool duo Curtis Jones and Jarrell Quansah are not expected to make Gareth Southgate's 26-man England squad

Euro 2024

Curtis Jones and Jarrell Quansah are the latest players expected to miss out on England’s Euro 2024 squad.

The Liverpool duo will join James Maddison, who has already left the Three Lions camp after being told he won’t be part of Gareth Southgate’s 26-man group who will travel to Germany.

It was both Jones and Quansah’s first senior call-ups when they were named in the initial 33-player squad but are widely reported to have missed out on the final selection.

Both were left on the bench in England’s 3-0 win over Bosnia and Hezergovina at St James’ Park, with uncapped pair Jarrad Branthwaite and Adam Wharton handed chances in defence and midfield instead.

Quansah has Ezri Konsa, Lewis Dunk and Marc Guehi ahead of him in the centre-back pecking order and is the one who misses out despite an impressive breakthrough campaign for the Reds.

His 0mission also comes after Luke Shaw – England’s only natural left-back – was handed a fitness boost ahead of the tournament.

Jones was similarly key for Liverpool in 2023-24 but looks to have lost out in the midfield race to club team-mate Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Conor Gallagher and Kobbie Mainoo are also expected to now make the cut alongside nailed-on starter Declan Rice.

Southgate must now omit four more players from his group, with the announcement of his 26-player squad expected on Friday.

England face Iceland at Wembley in their final warm-up fixture on Friday before their Euro 2024 campaign begins against Serbia on June 16.
