Elsewhere this morning, England’s under-21 squad was announced for this summer’s Euro 2023 campaign, but there’s no room for treble winner Rico Lewis.
The 18-year-old Man City defender has made 23 appearances for Pep Guardiola’s first team this season, including two in the Champions League and 14 in the Premier League.
But he was an unexpected omission from coach Lee Carsley’s side, which also had only one recognized stellar striker.

But Carsley will have plenty of flying experience and top talent to summon at the tournament, with Emile Smith Rowe, Curtis Jones, Harvey Elliott, Morgan Gibbs-White, Oliver Skipp and Anthony Gordon in the 23-man squad fighting for it. glory.
The young lions head to Romania and Georgia hoping to win their first European Championship since 1984 and begin their campaign against the Czech Republic in Georgia on June 22.
