Real Madrid have not had the same fortune on the injury front as they remain without long-term absentees Thibaut Courtois and David Alaba.

They will not have Aurelien Tchouameni either after the Frenchman picked up a one-match suspension in the first leg. He was shown a first-minute yellow card, his third of the competition.

He was filling in at centre-back so it leaves Madrid with a potential problem, although Eder Militao came on the in dying minutes of their 1-0 win over Mallorca at the weekend. Whether he is fit for a full match is unclear, though.

Early Manchester City team news

Early Manchester City team news

There was a shock in the Man City line-up last week; the demotion of Kevin De Bruyne to a place on the bench. It was quickly put to bed by Guardiola who claimed the Belgian had vomited in the dressing room upon arrival.

Fortunately for all involved, De Bruyne put that behind him and was involved at the weekend against Luton and will expect to start today.

He could be joined in the starting XI by defensive pair Kyle Walker and Nathan Ake who both returned to the bench at the weekend after missing last Tuesday's first leg.

John Stones was absent from the squad on Saturday, but Guardiola did not seem unduly worried about the 'discomfort' that kept him out, so he should have a fully fit squad to choose from today.

Real Madrid sparked by Ancelotti invention – and Bernabeu magic

As soon as the final whistle blew in Real Madrid and Manchester City’s electric 3-3 draw, two men in suits greeted each other calmly and cordially on the sidelines, no worse the wear for having just masterminded one of the craziest games in the Champions League.

Carlo Ancelotti and Pep Guardiola, who seem to never stop thinking and rethinking in search of an advantage, have taken this glittering modern European rivalry to another dimension in the process. Their sides have now scored 23 goals in their past five meetings. Tuesday’s quarter-final first leg in the Spanish capital was widely described as being worthy of the final and, in truth, it even exceeded expectations.

During Guardiola’s time as Barcelona manager, it was said in Spain that he always invented something when visiting the Santiago Bernabeu; a sign of personality, respect and perhaps nervousness.

On this occasion, it was Ancelotti who surprised everyone with something new.

Real Madrid's road to the quarter-final: Round of 16 second leg

Real Madrid 1-1 RB Leipzig (Vinicius Jr; Orban)

Just like the first leg, Real Madrid were fortunate to avoid a loss in the return leg, edging out a 2-1 aggregate win to book their spot in the quarter-finals.

RB Leipzig created several clear-cut chances to score but Andriy Lunin once again came up with big save after big save. The La Liga side doubled their aggregate lead in the 65th minute when Vinicius Junior scored on a counter-attack, but the Germans responded just three minutes later through Willi Orban to pull back within a goal.

The Bundesliga side almost forced extra time when Dani Olmo hit the woodwork in second-half stoppage time, but Madrid managed to see out the win.

RB Leipzig 0-1 Real Madrid (Brahim)

Real Madrid eked out a one-goal win in Germany in their first leg meeting with RB Leipzig, but this match very easily could have gone the other way.

The hosts started the contest on top and thought they had taken the lead in the third minute, only to have Benjamin Sesko's goal disallowed by VAR. They had numerous other chances to take the lead but it was instead Madrid's Brahim Diaz who would break the deadlock just after half-time, scoring a magnificent solo effort.

Andriy Lunin made several big saves as the Spanish side took their slender advantage home for the return leg.

Real Madrid were drawn into Group C alongside Napoli, Braga and Union Berlin.

Their campaign opened with what was quickly becoming a recurring theme as Jude Bellingham scored in stoppage time to take a 1-0 win over the German upstarts.

From there it was a pair of one-goal wins on the road over Napoli and Braga before more comfortable victories at home over the same two sides.

Madrid capped their group stage with another late victory over Union Berlin, finishing with a perfect record of six wins from six.

  • Real Madrid 1-0 Union Berlin (Bellingham)
  • Napoli 2-3 Real Madrid (Vinicius Jr, Bellingham, Meret OG)
  • Braga 1-2 Real Madrid (Rodrygo, Bellingham)
  • Real Madrid 3-0 Braga (Brahim, Vinicius Jr,
  • Real Madrid 4-2 Napoli (Rodrygo, Bellingham, Paz, Joselu)
  • Union Berlin 2-3 Real Madrid (Joselu x2, Ceballos)

Man City battled back like champions in the first leg at the Bernabeu

Man City battled back like champions in the first leg at the Bernabeu

For large parts, the performance in the first leg will have frustrated.

His team had nowhere near as much control as they are used to and they looked flustered under mounting Real Madrid pressure.

But, after riding those waves, they came through with their usual quality and the killer instinct to match.

The Athletic's Sam Lee wrote about the champions' steel shown by the holders in the Spanish capital — give it a read below.

Manchester City 3-1 Copenhagen (Akanji, Alvarez, Haaland; Elyounoussi)

City cruised into the quarter-finals on the back of yet another 3-1 win, advancing 6-2 on aggregate.

Goals from Manuel Akanji and Julian Alvarez inside the opening 10 minutes gave the Premier League side a four-goal cushion and all but ended the tie.

Copenhagen 1-3 Manchester City (Mattsson; De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva, Foden)

Manchester City travelled to Denmark to take on Copenhagen in the first leg of the round of 16.

Kevin De Bruyne's goal in the 10th minute got the holders off to a quick start, but Magnus Mattsson's incredible equaliser 24 minutes later gave the Danes hope.

It was to be short-lived, however, as Bernardo Silva restored City's advantage right before half-time.

Phil Foden scored in second-half stoppage time to secure a comfortable two-goal lead heading back to England for the return leg.

They made relatively easy work of all three opponents, winning all six of their matches and scoring exactly three goals in each.

  • RB Leipzig 1-3 Manchester City (Foden, Alvarez, Doku)

Last week's first leg: Real Madrid 3-3 Manchester City

Last week's first leg: Real Madrid 3-3 Manchester City

It didn't take long for last week's six-goal thriller to burst into life.

One minute and 48 seconds to be exact, when Bernardo Silva caught Andriy Lunin off guard with a well-struck free-kick.

But that City lead did not last long as, exactly 10 minutes later, Eduardo Camavinga saw his deflected strike from outside the box wrong foot Stefan Ortega and level the scores. And another deflected goal, in the 14th minute, from Rodrygo flipped the game on its head after a lovely pick out by Vinicius Junior.

Chances came and went for Carlo Ancelotti's side before Phil Foden arrowed a perfect left-footed strike into the top corner to make it 2-2.

Enough drama? No.

Josko Gvardiol then scored another brilliant goal, his first for City, to turn the game around for the second time before a sublime Fede Valverde volley ensured it would be level heading into the second leg.

Manchester City vs Real Madrid: H2H record

This has been one of the most popular Champions League match-ups in the last few years.

This is the third season in a row that the two teams have been drawn against each other in the knockout stage, taking the total meetings to 11.

And it has been a very closely-fought battle across those 11 matches with Manchester City holding a slight edge over the Spaniards.

  • Manchester City wins : 4
  • Real Madrid wins : 3

In those games, City have scored 20 goals which is three more than Real Madrid (17).

A huge night of Champions League football

A huge night of Champions League football

The Etihad Stadium is not the only place to focus on this evening as there an equally big game at the Allianz Arena.

As was the case last Tuesday, Bayern Munich and Arsenal kick off at the same time as this match.

We are also covering that match here at The Athletic , but if you plan to stay following updates here, we will be bringing you the major updates from Munich too.

About last night!

About last night!

We were treated to another scarcely believable night of Champions League yesterday.

11 goals over the two matches as PSG and Dortmund both overcame first-leg deficits to reach the semi-final.

The French champions had Ronald Araujo to thank as his first-half red card set the platform for their comeback in a 6-4 aggregate win.

Dortmund ensured both Spanish sides would crash out on the night as they beat Atletico Madrid 4-2 in front of their own fans to progress with a 5-4 aggregate scoreline.

  • Barcelona (4) 1-4 (6) PSG (Raphinha; Dembele, Vitinha, Mbappe [x2])
  • Dortmund (5) 4-2 (4) Atletico (Brandt, Maatsen, Fullkrug, Sabitzer; Hummels [OG], Correa)

More of the same tonight please!

Today's second leg is being played at the home of the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup holders.

The Etihad Stadium is somewhere often criticised for a lack of an atmosphere, criticism which I think is often misplaced and very harsh.

It will be absolutely bouncing later on, as it is for all big games.

Manchester City name a 21-man travelling squad for Real Madrid match

M anchester City has named a 21-man travelling squad for tomorrow night’s UEFA Champions League quarter-final first clash against Real Madrid. Tomorrow’s first leg kicks off at 20:00 (UK time) at the Bernabeu. The European champions will be hoping to bring a positive result back to Manchester from their trip to face Carlo Ancelotti’s side. The second leg takes place on Wednesday the 18th of April at the Etihad Stadium.

Pep Guardiola was unable to call upon Kyle Walker and Nathan Ake for tomorrow night’s match. The pair failed to train with Manchester City squad earlier today. They will both now miss City’s clash with the La Liga leaders. Croatian defender

Josko Gvardiol did, however, take his place with the City travelling party. An earlier report from Manchester Evening News journalist Joe Bray indicated that Gvardiol was in doubt for the game as he also missed training. But he will travel with the City squad, which is a bonus for the world champions. Attention will now shift to Pep Guardiola’s pre game press conference for a further update on Gvardiol’s condition ahead of tomorrow’s massive fixture.

Besides Kyle Walker and Nathan Ake being unavailable the treble winners have a full squad to choose from.

The full Manchester City travelling squad is as follows: Ruben Dias, John Stones, Mateo Kovacic, Erling Haaland, Jack Grealish, Jeremy Doku, Rodri, Kevin De Bruyne, Stefan Ortega, Julian Alvarez, Bernardo Silva, Sergio Gomez, Josko Gvardiol, Manuel Akanji, Matheus Nunes, Ederson, Scott Carson, Phil Foden, Oscar Bobb, Mahamadou Susoho, Rico Lewis.

Chelsea have landed safely in the Spanish capital and 24 players have been confirmed to be among the travelling party.

Our top scorer in the Champions League this season, Raheem Sterling , returned to the side at Wolves last time out and is among the travelling contingent.

His compatriot Mason Mount also boarded the plane despite not playing in any of our last seven matches. Thiago Silva has missed the same amount of games as Mount due to a knee ligament injury, but has trained at Cobham this week and he is among those to have travelled.

N'Golo Kante, yet to feature in this season's Champions League competition, was among the travelling contingent.

Full-back Ben Chilwell , who has today agreed a two-year contract extension with Chelsea, is also involved, alongside fellow defender and his captain Cesar Azpilicueta.

Real Madrid release squad list for preseason tour to US with surpise omission

Real Madrid have released their squad list for their preseason tour to the USA, ahead of their Wednesday flight across the Atlantic Ocean.

Carlo Ancelotti took just 25 players with him compared to the 32 headed with Barcelona on their tour, and included only one outfield youngster in his squad. Nico Paz, a talented midfielder of 18, was included in the squad to add to an already quality group in the middle of the pitch.

📝✅ ¡Nuestra primera convocatoria de la 2️⃣3️⃣/2️⃣4️⃣! #RealMadridOnTour pic.twitter.com/HTyqxZjGLP — Real Madrid C.F. (@realmadrid) July 19, 2023

Outside of that, the main surprise was that Uruguayan youngster Alvaro Rodriguez did not make the cut. Making his debut last season and scoring in the Madrid derby, Ancelotti confirmed that he would promoted to the first team this summer. It appears he has tracked back on that decision, surprisingly leaving Rodriguez out.

Real Madrid have reportedly been working on a new 4-4-2 formation under Ancelotti this preseason, and the tour to the US will be the first opportunity to see how it functions. Their first fixture is against Milan on Sunday night local time, 04:00 CEST at the Rose Bowl.

Did today signal the end of Henderson's England career?

Jordan Henderson's inclusion in England squads and starting XIs has always been as a result of more than just his ability as a footballer.

Yes, in his prime, he was a very effective operator at club and international level, but it was his leadership that made him a player fit for the top level with Liverpool and England.

But now, it seems, those qualities no longer make up for his technical shortcomings.

The Athletic's Daniel Taylor pondered whether we have seen the last of the 33-year-old in an England shirt — check it out below.

The Athletic’s end-of-season awards, 2023-24: Men’s football

The Athletic’s end-of-season awards, 2023-24: Men’s football

With the Premier League season complete and Europe’s other major leagues either finished or winding down, it is time to reflect on 2023-24.

Our team of writers, analysts and experts have been busy submitting their votes for The Athletic ’s end-of-season awards. These cover the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Ligue 1 and the Bundesliga, and this year we also some have Europe-wide awards.

Let’s reveal the winners…

The Athletic’s end-of-season awards, 2023-24: Men’s football

'Trent is too good not to play'

'Trent is too good not to play'

The goalkeeper and most of the back four picks itself, with Kieran Trippier (or Joe Gomez) a fine short-term option at left-back if Luke Shaw isn't fully fit.

Maybe, as a Crystal Palace fan, I'm biased, but I've also added Marc Guehi, a quick, agile and intelligent defender comfortable playing as a left-sided centre-back. He is the future of the England defence alongside John Stones.

But who to play alongside Declan Rice? A double pivot, possibly with an exciting youngster like Adam Wharton or Kobbie Mainoo, is tempting, but feels a bit too defensive against a stodgy Serbia side first up.

So I've picked Trent Alexander-Arnold, one of the most talented players in the country, who can ping passes from deep like a superstar NFL quarterback. The front four, with Jude Bellingham in his most dangerous position at No 10 and Phil Foden allowed freedom to roam from the left, picks itself.

My XI (4-2-3-1): Pickford; Walker, Stones, Guehi, Trippier; Alexander-Arnold, Rice; Saka, Bellingham, Foden; Kane.

'Kobbie Mainoo has been seriously impressive'

'Kobbie Mainoo has been seriously impressive'

A very obvious first-choice back fours picks itself; Kieran Trippier fills in given Luke Shaw's lack of fitness.

Then a slight curveball in midfield. Kobbie Mainoo was seriously impressive in England's March friendly against Belgium and has been all season for Manchester United.

His inclusion allows England to take the handbrake off more offensively, and Jude Bellingham pushes into the No. 10 position he has excelled in for Real Madrid.

Phil Foden gets a bit of a free role, but starts on the left as he still does for Manchester City fairly regularly.

Cole Palmer has been excellent for Chelsea, but playing him out wide is sub-optimal and there are so many cautionary England tales about forcing square pegs into round holes.

My XI (4-2-3-1): Pickford; Walker, Stones, Maguire, Trippier; Rice, Mainoo; Saka, Bellingham, Foden; Kane.

What did England's squad look like at the last Euros?

What did England's squad look like at the last Euros?

When Southgate names his final squad for this summer's Euros, it probably won't look too dissimilar to the one he named for the year-delayed Euro 2020 tournament.

The 26-man squad for that looked like this:

  • Goalkeepers : Dean Henderson, Sam Johnstone, Jordan Pickford.
  • Defenders : Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ben Chilwell, Conor Coady, Reece James, Harry Maguire, Tyrone Mings, Luke Shaw, John Stones, Kieran Trippier, Kyle Walker.
  • Midfielders : Jude Bellingham, Jordan Henderson, Mason Mount, Kalvin Phillips, Declan Rice.
  • Forwards : Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Phil Foden, Jack Grealish, Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford, Bukayo Saka, Jadon Sancho, Raheem Sterling.

How England ended their penalty curse

How England ended their penalty curse

From the Euro 1996 semi-finals to the start of the 2018 World Cup, the penalty record of the England men’s national team was famously messy. Five matches went to penalties, five were lost.

Penalties had become a weight around England’s neck. Their nemesis. Then, at the World Cup in Russia, they ended that terrible run, beating Colombia on penalties to reach the quarter-finals.

In this exclusive extract from Geir Jordet’s new book, Pressure: Lessons from the Psychology of the Penalty Shootout, we learn about an unsung hero who worked for 18 months to help make it possible…

The best XI of players missing out

You could name a pretty handy line-up made up of players who haven't made the England squad, so let me try to formulate an XI (assuming everyone were fit and healthy).

(4-3-3): Nick Pope; Reece James, Fikayo Tomori, Levi Colwill, Ben Chilwell; Harvey Elliott, Kalvin Phillips, Mason Mount; Noni Madueke, Dominic Solanke, Marcus Rashford.

A bench of Sam Johnstone, Tino Livramento, Trevoh Chalobah, Tyrick Mitchell, Rico Lewis, Lewis Hall, Archie Gray, Jordan Henderson, Morgan Rogers, Callum Wilson and Eddie Nketiah, too.

Police chief calls for fair treatment of England fans

Police chief calls for fair treatment of England fans

England fans travelling to Germany for the men’s European Championship this summer should be “judged on their behaviour, not reputation”, says chief constable Mark Roberts, head of the UK Football Policing Unit.

Roberts, speaking at a briefing before the tournament urged German police — two representatives of whom were sitting alongside him — to not judge England fans on reputation, instead setting out a pattern of good behaviour at major tournaments.

He said: “We really try to make this point about England fans travelling abroad. The behaviour of England fans in tournaments has generally been excellent.

“When we deal with foreign authorities, (we say) please judge our fans on their behaviour, not on reputation. Candidly, there are countries in Europe with much more serious problems when it comes to football-related problems.

“I think we’re talking more Inbetweeners than Green Street,” he joked.

Inside the mind of Eberechi Eze: Faith, fun, and England

Inside the mind of Eberechi Eze: Faith, fun, and England

Eberechi Eze in full flow is a thrilling sight.

The 24-year-old does not so much run across the turf as glide, shimmying and ghosting past opposition defenders before they even realise he is there. Even in a league that can boast some of the finest talents in world football, it is a technique few can match.

But due to injuries across the last few season, it has been seen less frequently than fans and team-mates would have liked.

Now, however, Eze is smiling again. Click below for more.

'Cole Palmer has to play'

'Cole Palmer has to play'

The debate over how to accommodate Jude Bellingham and Phil Foden is being overcomplicated in many quarters.

Both are world-class No 10s but Bellingham can be a world-class No 8 too. Play him him, with Declan Rice sitting deeper, and England can benefit from the strengths of both.

If we assume Luke Shaw will not be fit, at least for the opening game, the Kieran Trippier is the only option at left-back, while Marc Guehi is the least risky of several risky options to partner John Stones in central defence.

And on the back of the season he has had, Cole Palmer has to play and that left-sided attacking berth is the only slot left for him.

My XI (4-2-3-1): Pickford; Walker, Stones, Guehi, Trippier; Rice, Bellingham; Saka, Foden, Palmer; Kane.

The 'maybe next time' youngsters

The 'maybe next time' youngsters

In goal, Wigan's Sam Tickle might be in contention next time if he gets a move to a Championship club or similar, while Brentford's Matt Cox and Brighton's James Beadle - also in the Under 21s - are showing promise too.

In defence, Luton's Teden Mengi and Man City's Callum Doyle, who has impressed on loan at Leicester, are probably too raw and unproven. Full-backs Lewis Hall and Tino Livramento could catapult up the pecking order if they get more consistent game time at Newcastle next season.

Midfielders? From the Championship, Hayden Hackney and Archie Gray look good prospects, while Alex Scott and Carney Chukwuemeka need more consistent first-team action in the top-flight. Keep an eye on Liverpool's Tyler Morton too.

In attack, wingers Samuel Iling-Junior and Jamie Bynoe-Gittens have impressed abroad, while Jay Stansfield and Liam Delap (on loan from Premier League teams), plus Jaden Philogene and Jonathan Rowe, have done well in the Championship.

The explosive Morgan Rogers has settled in really nicely at Aston Villa, too.

Some real bolters for the next major tournament? How about Ashley Phillips, Bobby Clark, Lewis Miley, Omari Forson, Jobe Bellingham, Ethan Nwaneri, Jayden Danns or Amario Cozier-Duberry?

A reminder: The Athletic is running a live Q&A session right here from 4-5pm BST. We're five minutes into it, so you have 55 minutes left to contribute.

After Gareth Southgate announced his preliminary squad for Euro 2024, with the likes of Jordan Henderson and Marcus Rashford left out, and Ivan Toney, Jack Grealish and Jarell Quansah included, there are plenty of questions.

Is this the end for Henderson? Was it right to leave Rashford out? Who do you think was lucky to get a call-up? Did anyone miss out who deserves a chance?

Our England writers, fresh from hearing Southgate’s reasoning behind his selections are at your disposal for a live question-and-answer session. Get your queries in now and they will do their best to provide you with some answers.

Portugal’s Euro 2024 squad: Nunes out, Neto in

Portugal’s Euro 2024 squad: Nunes out, Neto in

Some news from outside England: Portugal have named their squad for the Euros, with Manchester City’s Matheus Nunes left out but Wolves midfielder Pedro Neto in.

Nine Premier League players are among the 26 called up by head coach Roberto Martinez, with Nunes arguably the most high-profile omission. He didn’t feature during qualification but was called up for Martinez’s most recent squad in March.

Neto returned from injury for Wolves’ final game of the season against Liverpool on Sunday, coming off the bench for 12 minutes. He had been sidelined since March with his second hamstring injury of the season, but shone when he was fit with nine assists and two goals from 20 league appearances.

Cristiano Ronaldo heads up the squad. He was dropped during the World Cup in Qatar in 2022 but Martinez restored him to the side and Ronaldo responded with 10 goals in qualifying. Read more below.

England’s Anthony Gordon is Newcastle's player of the season

England’s Anthony Gordon is Newcastle's player of the season

Anthony Gordon can be content that his Newcastle career has come full circle. The last time Newcastle travelled to Brentford, in April 2023, Gordon shoved Eddie Howe, having been substituted as a substitute.

It was a heat-of-the-moment reaction from a player who was desperate to impress but struggling to establish himself in the starting XI, and it led Gordon to fear he had damaged his relationship with his new head coach.

Just 13 months on, as he is named in the 33-strong England training squad for the European Championship, Gordon’s mood, and standing, at Newcastle have been transformed.

After a necessary six-month adjustment period, Gordon has benefited immensely from Howe’s hands-on methods, while the head coach has benefited in turn from having such a supremely motivated and talented player. Here's how he turned things around.

Manchester City, Arsenal, and... Crystal Palace?

Surprisingly, Crystal Palace are up there with Man City and Arsenal as providing the joint-most players to the provisional England squad, with four.

Not sure many would have predicted that at the start of today! And to think, left-back Tyrick Mitchell could have easily been No 5...

An interesting stat from The Athletic 's Will Jeanes: The team that provided the most players to England's squad at the Italia 90 World Cup was: Rangers.

The players were Gary Stevens, Terry Butcher, Chris Woods and Trevor Steven. Congrats if you guessed any of them.

Marcus Rashford and Jordan Henderson have been left out by Gareth Southgate as the England manager named a bumper 33-player training squad ahead of Euro 2024 .

Rashford scored only eight goals all season in a dramatic drop off from his career high of 30 in the previous campaign and pays the price in a major shock . Henderson’s move to Ajax to save his international career has meanwhile failed and the 33-year-old is unlikely to play for his country again.

Crystal Palace duo Adam Wharton and Eberechi Eze have made the long list, which also includes Liverpool’s Jarell Quansah and Curtis Jones. But Chelsea full-backs Reece James and Ben Chilwell have been left out.

Southgate has named a large squad today, with several more than the allotted 26 players included, ahead of friendly matches with Bosnia and Herzegovina at St James’ Park on 3 June and Iceland at Wembley on 7 June. The England manager will then finalise his Euros squad with an announcement on Saturday 8 June , six days before the tournament begins.

Follow the latest updates and reaction to the England squad announcement below.

England axe Marcus Rashford from Euro 2024 squad – with five uncapped players on long list

England axe Marcus Rashford from Euro 2024 squad – with five uncapped players on long list

Gareth Southgate has axed Marcus Rashford and Jordan Henderson from his England training squad for Euro 2024 as he has given call-ups to young and in-form players.

The uncapped Liverpool duo of Jarell Quansah and Curtis Jones are in a 33-man party along with Everton centre-back Jarrad Branthwaite and Crystal Palace’s Adam Wharton, who began 2024 as a Championship player with Blackburn .

Henderson, who was England vice-captain and who has won 81 caps, has not missed a major tournament since the 2010 World Cup but has had a difficult season, first joining Al-Ettifaq and then leaving after six months to sign for Ajax. Southgate had remained loyal to both the midfielder and forward Rashford as they have struggled at club level until taking the dramatic decision to drop both.

Rashford, who has been in England’s last four major tournament squads, including all three under Southgate, has not started a match since last month’s FA Cup semi-final and has only scored eight goals for Manchester United and lost out to wingers who have had better seasons.

Cole Palmer, the second-highest scorer in the Premier League, Jarrod Bowen, who got 20 goals in all competitions for West Ham, and Anthony Gordon were all preferred. Jack Grealish, who has lost his place in the Manchester City side, was also chosen ahead of Rashford.

Full squad details:

Scotland’s Euro 2024 squad: Who’s on the plane to Germany?

After ending their men’s major tournament drought three years ago, Scotland will hope for an improved showing as they take their place at Euro 2024 this summer.

Steve Clarke’s side reached a second European Championships in a row after making a brilliant start to their qualifying campaign, which included wins over Spain at Hampden and Norway in Oslo, finishing second in their group to secure an automatic qualification spot .

Now the Tartan Army will travel in their thousands as Scotland head to Germany , after they were knocked out of Euro 2020 finals in the group stages and without a win three years ago.

Despite drawing against England at Wembley, Scotland were beaten by the Czech Republic and Croatia at Hampden - but Clarke’s side will hope to be more competitive this time around.

They will open the tournament against hosts Germany in Munich on June 14, before facing Switzerland and Hungary in Group A. Before then, Clarke will announce his 26-player squad for the Euros on Wednesday May 22 , as excitment builds ahead of a second major tournament in three years.

Netherlands Euro 2024 squad: Who makes Ronald Koeman’s preliminary list?

The Netherlands will be looking for a significant run in Euro 2024 , having not reached the quarter-finals since 2008.

Having not won the tournament since 1988, when manager Ronald Koeman was a player, the Netherlands reached the quarter-finals of the last World Cup, having not qualified for the previous edition in Russia.

After finishing third in the 2014 World Cup, the Netherlands went on a barren spell at international events, and did not qualify for the 2016 Euros either, but since then the side have improved and won all three of their group games in 2020, before being knocked out by the Czech Republic.

Koeman will be hoping to inspire his side and rediscover the form that saw them beat Italy and Croatia in the Nations League semi-finals. France, Poland and Austria await in Group D, but France got the better of the Netherlands twice in the qualifying rounds for the tournament.

Virgil van Dijk and Nathan Ake hold experience of top level football, while Jeremie Frimpong is an exciting talent having excelled at Bayer Leverkusen this season with 14 goals and 12 assists for Xabi Alonso’s unbeaten Bundesliga champions.

Portugal confirm Euro 2024 squad as Cristiano Ronaldo leads star-studded team

Cristiano Ronaldo is set to play at a sixth European Championship after the 39-year-old was included in Portugal’s squad for Euro 2024.

It means Ronaldo will play at the Euros 20 years on from his tournament debut at Euro 2004, and have the chance to add to his record 14 goals at the championships.

The Al-Nassr forward joins a star-studded squad named by Roberto Martinez, with Bruno Fernandes, Bernardo Silva, Rafael Leao, Diogo Jota, Joao Felix and Goncalo Ramos all offering considerable attacking firepower.

Portugal won the Euros for the first time in 2016 and will be favourites to qualify as winners of Group F, with Turkey, Czech Republic and Georgia their opponents in Germany.

Veteran defender Pepe, meanwhile, is also included and is set to play at the European Championships at the age of 41.

France Euro 2024 squad: Who makes confirmed 25 named by Didier Deschamps?

It’s been 24 years since France were champions of Europe, but Les Bleus edge England as the standout favourites ahead of Euro 2024 .

Didier Deschamps has named a star-studded squad headlined by Kylian Mbappe and backed by plenty of major tournament experience after winning the World Cup in 2018 and reaching the Qatar final in 2022.

France will be out to go one better after their defeat to Argentina on penalties, which was also how they were beaten at the last Euros. France were the favourites then, too, but were stunned by Switzerland in the last-16.

France will face the Netherlands, Austria and Poland in a competitive Group D. As well as Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann, Olivier Giroud and N’Golo Kante are among those who remain from the 2018 World Cup winning side.

There are plenty of fresh additions, though, with Arsenal centre-back William Saliba and Real Madrid duo Eduardo Camavinga and Aurlien Tchouameni reflecting the deep pool of talent available to Deschamps.

France should go far and another clash with England potentially looms following their thrilling meeting in the 2022 World Cup quarter-finals.

Germany Euro 2024 squad: Who makes Julian Nagelsmann’s preliminary list?

Hosts Germany will look to triumph on home soil at Euro 2024 this summer.

The three-time European champions have underperformed at recent major tournaments, exiting the last two World Cups in the group stages and only reaching last-16 of Euro 2020, where they lost to England at Wembley three years ago .

But Julian Nagelsmann will be out to revive the spirits of the home nation and recent victories over France and the Netherlands in friendly matches was a sign that Germany will be among the contenders for the title this summer.

Scotland, Switzerland and Hungary await in Group A, with Germany kicking off the Euros against the Scots in Munich on June 13.

Nagelsmann’s squad has been bolstered by Bayer Leverkusen’s remarkable unbeaten Bundesliga triumph, with star Florian Wirtz named player of the year in the German top-flight.

The 21-year-old star adds to a number of national team stalwarts who remain from Germany’s World Cup triumph in 2014, with Thomas Muller and Manuel Neuer joined by the returning Toni Kroos, who is back from international retirement.

Gareth Southgate explains Marcus Rashford and Jordan Henderson omissions from Euro 2024 squad

Gareth Southgate has explained the reasons behind Marcus Rashford and Jordan Henderson’s ommissions from the England training squad for Euro 2024 after turning to young and in-form players.

Southgate has previously remained loyal to both the midfielder and forward despite struggles at club level.

But after naming a 33-man squad ahead of this summer’s tournament in Germany, Southgate has made the “difficult” decision to cut the experienced pair.

“These are, of course, difficult calls, talking about players who are very good players, who have been an important part of what we’ve done for a number of years,” Southgate explained.

“With Marcus, I just feel other players in that area of the pitch have had better seasons, it’s as simple as that.”

Marcus Rashford sends message to Gareth Southgate after being cut from England squad

Marcus Rashford wished Gareth Southgate and England “all the best” at Euro 2024 after the Manchester United forward was left out of the squad for the tournament this summer.

Rashford was a shock omission from Southgate’s 33-player training squad announced on Tuesday afternoon, which will be trimmed to the allocated 26 players by June 8 ahead of the Euros.

The 26-year-old has represented England at the last four major international tournaments but has suffered a difficult season on the pitch this term, scoring just eight goals in all competitions for United.

It represented a significant drop-off from his 30-goal campaign the previous year, with Southgate admitting that other forwards, such as Chelsea’s Cole Palmer, Newcastle’s Anthony Gordon and West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen, have had” better seasons”.

Southgate admitted it was ‘difficult’ to leave Rashford out but said other forwards have had ‘better seasons’

The biggest omissions from England’s Euro 2024 squad: Nick Pope

The Newcastle goalkeeper’s form last season saw him tipped to challenge Jordan Pickford for England’s starting spot at the World Cup, but has been missing since December due to a dislocated shoulder. Dean Henderson and James Trafford are included in the training squad instead, along with Aaron Ramsdale.

The biggest omissions from England’s Euro 2024 squad: Dominic Solanke

The striker could not have done much more after scoring a sensational 19 goals in the Premier League for Bournemouth this term, but Harry Kane, Ivan Toney and Ollie Watkins are heading to Germany as Southgate’s more established options. Tough luck, I guess.
