    England squad for Euro 2020 to be announced on May 25

    Gareth Southgate will name his England squad for this summer's Euro 2020 tournament on May 25, it has been confirmed. The Three Lions boss will be able to name a larger than usual squad of 26 players after the UEFA decided to boost the numbers from 23 "in order to guarantee the smooth running and continuity of the competition in light of the Covid-19 pandemic". The England manager wants to give all player at least a seven-day break between the end of the domestic season and joining up with the squad, meaning those with European commitments could miss warm-up games against Austria and Romania at Middlesbrough's Riverside Stadium.

    Liverpool and Holland on collision course over Virgil van Dijk's Euro 2021 participation

    Liverpool and Holland are on a collision course over whether Virgil van Dijk should participate in this summer’s European championships, with Dutch national coach Frank de Boer saying it is up to the player to decide if he is ready. Van Dijk has not played since rupturing his cruciate ligament against Everton on October 17 and it looks increasingly likely he will find himself caught between the needs of his club and country when the tournament comes along. De Boer says he has been encouraged by van Dijk’s recovery and is not ruling out the 29-year-old being included in his squad. “I think he has to decide. It is his career,” de Boer told ESPN.“I can imagine that he is in a dilemma. Can it mean something for Oranje? I hope he has made giant steps in his rehabilitation.” Such an optimistic tone is at odds with Liverpool’s more cautious approach. Having lost their £75 million defender for all but five games of their title defence, the last thing they want is for van Dijk to return prematurely and suffer a setback. Klopp has been asked regularly about van Dijk’s chances of making the Euros over the past six months, and has made it clear he believes his most realistic target is pre-season training.

    Covid-hit teams will have to fulfil Euro 2020 matches with just 13 players

    Euro 2020 teams hit by Covid outbreaks this summer will have to fulfil fixtures even if they have as few as 13 players available, including a goalkeeper. Uefa has ruled that matches must go ahead as planned even if up to half of a squad’s 26 players are forced into quarantine or self-isolation following a Covid outbreak in the camp. The Premier League introduced a similar rule at the start of this season, requiring clubs to fulfil fixtures if they had 14 available players, but later opted to postpone a number of fixtures following coronavirus outbreaks, prompting some managers to question whether it was being enforced.
