Euro 2024: Jack Grealish & Harry Maguire set to miss out on England squad

Written by on June 6, 2024

In a post on social media,, external Maguire, who has represented the Three Lions on 63 occasions, confirmed he would not be playing in Germany.

He said: “I’m devastated not to have been selected to play for England at the Euros this summer. Despite my best efforts, I’ve not been able to overcome an injury to my calf. Maybe I pushed myself too hard, to try and make it. Simply, I am absolutely gutted.

“For me, representing England is the highest honour. It means everything to me. If I can’t help the team as a player, I will support them as a fan – along with the rest of the country. Go and win it boys. Next, I will return to the supervision of the Manchester United medical team in order to prepare for next season.”

Grealish and Maguire had been part of Gareth Southgate’s initial 33-man selection, with seven players having to be dropped before the final 26 for the tournament in Germany is announced on Saturday.

Earlier on Thursday it was confirmed Tottenham forward James Maddison, 27, and Liverpool midfielder Curtis Jones, 23, had both left the training camp.

In a post on social media, Maddison wrote of his disappointment, saying “devastated doesn’t quite cut it”. He added: “I still thought there would be a space for me in a 26-man squad as I feel I bring something different and had been a mainstay in this whole qualifying campaign for Euro 2024 in Germany.

“But the manager has made the decision and I have to respect that. I’ll be back, I have no doubt.”

England start their Euro 2024 campaign with a Group C game against Serbia in Gelsenkirchen on 16 June, before games against Denmark on 20 June and Slovenia on 25 June.
