Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson has pulled out of England's Euro 2020 squad.

Henderson has withdrawn due to a hip injury and been replaced in Gareth Southgate's squad by Aaron Ramsdale.

Ramsdale had been named in an initial 33-man squad though missed out with Henderson, Jordan Pickford, and Sam Johnstone chosen in the final 26.

Pickford is Southgate's No. 1 and impressed in the win over Croatia, though it had been thought that Henderson would be first-choice replacement should the Everton keeper be unavailable.

Henderson will now return to Old Trafford while Ramsdale will join up with the squad once passing Covid protocols.

An FA statement read: "Aaron Ramsdale has replaced Dean Henderson in England’s UEFA EURO 2020 squad.

"Henderson withdraws with a hip issue that would continue to limit his involvement in training throughout the tournament.

"Under UEFA regulations, squads are permitted to replace goalkeepers on medical grounds at any stage.

"The Manchester United goalkeeper will now return to his club for further assessment and rehabilitation ahead of the 2021-22 season.

"Ramsdale was originally a member of Gareth Southgate’s pre-tournament group in Middlesbrough having played for England at this year’s UEFA U21 EURO in Slovenia in March.

"The Sheffield United player, a 2017 UEFA U19 EURO winner, will now follow standard COVID-19 testing protocol before entering the camp."

Henderson had sat out England training though was named on the bench against Croatia due to UEFA rules.

Ramsdale joins the squad despite never making a senior international appearance.

The former Bournemouth star has represented the Three Lions at Under-18 through to Under-21 level.

He was part of the the England Under-19 side that won the 2017 European U19 Championship.
