Southgate Names England Squad For Nations League Finals, 7 Snubbed

England boss Gareth Southgate has revealed his 23-man squad for their upcoming UEFA Nations League semi-final clash against Netherlands, and a number of high-profile players missed out, including two Manchester United stars.

The Three Lions take on the Dutch in the semi-final of the UNL on 6 June, with Southgate’s team going into the clash on the back of five straight wins.

Striker Harry Kane, who missed many games in the second half of the season for Tottenham Hotspur, was named in the squad, while his club colleague Kieran Trippier was left out.

Trippier had a very good campaign with England at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, but Southgate seemingly feels his competitors at right-back ended the 2018/19 season stronger.

"Of course, Kieran Trippier has had such a big impact, he had such a brilliant World Cup," he said, according to The Telegraph.

"He has been a really valuable member of our squad and has a great attitude with us, real passion in playing for England, but Trent (Alexander-Arnold) and Kyle (Walker) have finished the season so strongly.

"So it is a position where we have got real competition for places. That is as hard a decision as we have had to make."

Luke Shaw was once again overlooked by the manager, as was Leicester City playmaker James Maddison.

Here is England's squad in full, as announced by the FA:

Goalkeepers: Jordan Pickford (Everton), Jack Butland (Sunderland), Tom Heaton (Burnely)

Defenders: Danny Rose, Eric Dier (both Tottenham Hotspur), John Stones, Kyle Walker (both Manchester City), Harry Maguire, Ben Chilwell (both Leicester City), Joe Gomez, Trent Alexander-Arnold (both Liverpool), Michael Keane (Everton)

Midfielders/attackers: Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford (both Manchester United), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Harry Kane, Dele Alli (both Tottenham Hotspur), Fabian Delph, Raheem Sterling (both Manchester City), Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund), Declan Rice (West Ham United), Ross Barkley (Chelsea), Callum Wilson (Bournemouth)
