After a solid run in the Everton side to close out the ultimately disappointing season, versatile and tough-tackling youngster Ben Godfrey was named in Gareth Southgate’s provision 33-man squad for the upcoming European Championships to be played this summer.

Current starting goalkeeper Jordan Pickford has retained his spot in the side after answering his critics with a series of stable and sparkling performances that have cemented his status in the Three Lions squad, while striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin is also in following his personal best season for the Blues with 21 goals.

However, central defender Michael Keane has been a casualty of the Toffees’ stuttering defensive performances, having been dropped from the England set-up for the last round of international friendlies, and now overlooked by Southgate in the provisional squad for the tournament that starts on June 11th.

The full squad is listed below -

Goalkeepers: Dean Henderson (Manchester United), Sam Johnstone (West Bromwich Albion), Jordan Pickford (Everton), Aaron Ramsdale (Sheffield United).

Defenders: Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Ben Chilwell (Chelsea), Conor Coady (Wolves), Ben Godfrey (Everton), Reece James (Chelsea), Harry Maguire (Manchester United), Tyrone Mings (Aston Villa), Luke Shaw (Manchester United), John Stones (Manchester City), Kieran Trippier (Atletico Madrid), Kyle Walker (Manchester City), Ben White (Brighton & Hove Albion).

Midfielders: Jude Bellingham (Borussia Dortmund), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Jesse Lingard (Manchester United), Mason Mount (Chelsea), Kalvin Phillips (Leeds), Declan Rice (West Ham), James Ward-Prowse (Southampton).

Forwards: Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton), Phil Foden (Manchester City), Jack Grealish (Aston Villa), Mason Greenwood (Manchester United), Harry Kane (Tottenham), Marcus Rashford (Manchester United), Bukayo Saka (Arsenal), Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City), Ollie Watkins (Aston Villa).
