In the Lion’s Den: Welcome two Bens and One Aaron  


England Coach Gareth Southgate dished out his 33-man provisional squad ahead of Euro 2020 which kicks off on June 11. Talk about precision at its best.

The News had gone round that at 1300 hours Southgate will release his provisional squad and that was exactly what happened.

The world has become a global village and you cannot keep the world waiting when you say it is time then it is time.

Just like Nigerian born England internationals Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori got the chance to make a debut for the Three Lions at the last world cup, this time it is a case of two Bens and one Aaron.

Three players received first England call-ups namely Ben White, Ben Godfrey and Aaron Ramsdale. The squad will further be trimmed to 26 players on June 1, allowing him to include England injury doubts such as Harry Maguire, Jordan Henderson and Kalvin Phillips.

There is a first senior call-up for Brighton centre-back White and Everton defender Godfrey, while Sheffield United goalkeeper Ramsdale joins uncapped Sam Johnstone in the squad as Nick Pope misses out through injury.

Manchester United teenager Mason Greenwood has been recalled by England for the first time since being sent home after his debut in Iceland.

Eric Dier misses out on the Euro 2020 squad, but Alexander-Arnold returns to the group alongside fellow right-backs Reece James, Kieran Trippier and Kyle Walker. Bukayo Saka, Ollie Watkins and 17-year-old Jude Bellingham are among the others to get the nod.
