Jack Grealish, Maguire axed from England’s Euro 2024 final squad

Jack Grealish will not make the Euro 2024 squad with Gareth Southgate confirming the seven players he has cut from his original squad.

Harry Maguire, as predicted by Mail Sport this afternoon, will also miss out due to a calf injury.

The five remaining omissions confirmed by Southgate are Curtis Jones, Jarell Quansah, Jarrad Branthwaite, James Maddison and James Trafford.

But Grealish has now paid the price for his disappointing campaign at Manchester City.

Doubts had surfaced over Harry Maguire’s fitness ahead of Gareth Southgate’s Euro 2024 squad announcement.

The England centre-back hasn’t played since April and was expected to miss Friday’s final warm-up game versus Iceland.

The fitness concerns surrounding Maguire placed significant uncertainty over his inclusion in Southgate’s final 26 man squad in news that comes as a major blow.

With Maguire’s omission, it becomes the first time Southgate has entered a major tournament without the Manchester United man.

Elsewhere, Liverpool midfielder Jones is also among the players to miss out on the final England squad for Euro 2024.

Jones joins Maddison who has also been told he won’t make the final cut.

It is understood Maddison was in line to play in Friday’s final warm-up fixture versus Iceland, but that will no longer be the case with Jarrod Bowen pushing to take his place in the team. Sources indicate Maddison’s decision to leave the squad on Wednesday is linked to Southgate’s decision to leave him out of the final party.
