England booked their place at Euro 2020 after taking seven wins from eight games in qualifying group A, scoring 37 goals in the process.

Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate has now released his provisional squad for the tournament, which is due to kick off in June 2021.

The 3-4-3 formation has been favoured by Southgate in recent international breaks and that has probably informed his decisions regarding personnel, but there is a lot of competition for places.

He has chosen 33 players in his provisional group for the European Championship, with the semi-finals and final taking place in the UK at Wembley, giving the players selected a little bit of time left to impress before the names have to be submitted.

Who has made the provisional Euro 2020 squad?

Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson, West Brom's Sam Johnstone, Everton shot-stopper Jordan Pickford and Sheffield United's Aaron Ramsdale have all made the cut, with Burnley's Nick Pope missing out due to a knee injury.

In defence, Trent Alexander-Arnold has been included despite an indifferent season at Liverpool alongside Chelsea duo Ben Chilwell and Reece James, Wolves star Conor Coady, Ben Godfrey of Everton, Manchester United pair Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw, Aston Villa centre-back Tyrone Mings, Atletico Madrid's Kieran Trippier, Ben White of Brighton and Manchester City's John Stones and Kyle Walker.

Borussia Dortmund teenager Jude Bellingham is the most notable inclusion in midfield, with Liverpool's Jordan Henderson also involved despite having only just returned from a long-term injury.

Manchester United's Jesse Lingard, who has just finished a successful loan spell at West Ham, has made the 33 too, along with Chelsea playmaker Mason Mount, Leeds United's Kalvin Phillips, Hammers talisman Declan Rice and Southampton's James Ward-Prowse.

There are 10 forwards in the provisional squad, starting with Manchester City duo Phil Foden and Raheem Sterling. Two of Manchester United's main attackers are also on board in Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford, as is Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish and his team-mate Ollie Watkins, Arsenal's Bukayo Saka, Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho and current Three Lions captain Harry Kane.

Who is likely to be cut?

Southgate will be required to cut seven players when he names his final squad, with several of the more surprising inclusions in the provisional line-up likely to be left out.

In attack, Watkins, Greenwood and Saka only have six caps between them and could all be in danger of missing out, while in midfield, Ward-Prowse is seemingly the man most at risk of dropping out given his limited experience at international level.

White and Godfrey have been handed maiden call-ups but might be disappointed when Southgate names his final list of defenders, but in terms of goalkeepers, it is not yet clear who he will pick between Johnstone and Ramsdale to join Pickford and Henderson at the summer tournament.

When will the final 26-man squad be announced?

Tuesday, May 25 had been the original date set for Southgate's announcement of his 26-man England squad for Euro 2020, however, he opted to follow the lead of Netherlands boss Frank de Boer and Italy coach Roberto Mancini by picking a provisional side instead.

Southgate will have to whittle down his selection to 26 before the June 1 deadline, with several players set to be involved in this week's Europa League and Champions League finals.
