Gareth Southgate will name his final England squad for Euro 2020 on Tuesday.
The former Three Lions midfielder named a provisional 33-man group last week but must cut seven players from that initial selection ahead of the rescheduled tournament.
England will take on Croatia, Scotland and the Czech Republic in Group D, with the top two guaranteed to reach the knockout phase. All three of England’s matches will be held at Wembley, as will the semi-finals and final of the competition.
England will also play pre-tournament friendlies against Austria and Romania at Middlesbrough’s Riverside Stadium in early June.
Some players, like Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson, face anxious waits to see if they will recover from injury in time to play at the finals.
When will the squad be announced?
Southgate will announce his final Euro 2020 squad on Tuesday. An exact time for the announcement is yet to be confirmed, but it is set to be before 6pm, when the England coach will hold a press conference.
Tuesday marks the deadline for all 24 nations competing at the finals to submit their squads – 10 days before the competition begins.
How many players will be selected?
Uefa recently expanded the number of players in each squad from 23 to 26, in order to cover the risk of players being ruled out through positive Covid-19 tests or quarantine regulations during the tournament.
Southgate named an expanded provisional squad on Tuesday and must cut it down to the maximum 26 by Tuesday.
What are the rules for picking squads?
Every squad must include three goalkeepers.
If a player is ruled out of the tournament through injury before their teams’s first match of the tournament, they can be replaced.
Goalkeepers ruled out through injury are able to be replaced at any time.
Players who are replaced cannot be re-admitted to the squad later in the tournament.
How can I watch it online and on TV?
Southgate’s post-announcement press conference is set to be broadcast live on England’s YouTube channel at 6pm. It is also due to be broadcast on Sky Sports News.
