Interesting to see that the most experienced player in terms of caps in the provisional squad is Sterling, looking at this from the BBC website not sure why we need to name 3 keepers then. Goalkeepers can be replaced during the tournament in the event of physical incapacity, even if one or two goalkeepers in the squad are still available.

Pretty certain you have to pick 3 keepers

I'm pretty certain you have to pick three goalkeepers but if you don't then maybe Southgate was worried about the fitness etc if one was waiting on standby

Three keepers looks rather light coming off the season we've just had!

We could have played all three and it wouldn't have made any difference

I think that was his point.
You have to pick three keepers but those rules state if a keeper gets injured you can replace him mid tournament anyway.

Squad looks ok.
Very fine line between what is a midfield and a forward these days - so pay little attention to how that end of the squad is classified.

4 right backs does seem a bit over kill though. Even if you classed Walker as a right sided centre half of a back 3 and played with wing backs that still leaves 3 to choose from

We have 4 right backs to make up for 1992 when we went to the Euros without any.

Maybe I’ve just got old & grumpy or maybe it’s just because history has told me, but I have no confidence in England at tournaments, the last World Cup was a nice surprise but we have (1996 apart) a terrible record in the Euros

The big worry in Euro 96 was shortage of left backs

The strikers though...

Shearer, Sheringham, Fowler & Ferdinand.
Just the likes of Cole, Wright, Collymore, Sutton and Le Tissier left at home.

I guess there's always players left out that will cause debate none more so than Gascoigne in 98

The good thing for me is that no one we have left out there i would be gutted about or would bang the drum for them to have been in the squad.

I just hope the starting 11 reflects that as well. I will be gutted if we see the rashford and sterling alongside Kane combo all over again

Same as although I'm not sure about Mings and for one tournament only it would have been nice if Vardy was on the bench as his pace would be a threat
