    Exclusive by Tom Barclay: Sol Campbell is out of the running for the England Under-21 job.

    The former defender, who won 73 caps for the Three Lions in his playing career, is understood to have had an interview to succeed Aidy Boothroyd.

    But the FA have decided to go in a different direction and ex-Southend and Macclesfield boss Campbell, 46, is no longer under consideration.

    England can take their time over the appointment.

    The Young Lions do not play a fixture until their Euro qualifier at home to Kosovo in September.

    Justin Cochrane, the current head coach of England's U17s side, remains the favourite for the role.

    England are second favourites for Euro 2020 behind France as Gareth Southgate prepares to name his squad for the tournament.

    England are priced at 5/1 to bring football home this summer with Betfair after only 9/2 favourites France.

    Belgium and Spain are next in the betting list at 6/1 and 7/1 while Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal are joint with Germany at 15/2.

    Jordan Henderson expects to be fit to lead England at next month’s European Championships.

    He said: “I was itching to get on. But I have only trained a few times with the team so it wasn’t the wisest thing to do!

    “I feel good. I have been training the last few weeks on my own.

    “Now I need team training and hopefully I can be fit for the Euros. Fingers crossed. That is my target.

    “I have been working hard in the background. I feel good but I have to go and train with England and be ready for the Euros.”

    Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has spoken out about not being selected in the Spain squad for the European Championships this summer.

    He tweeted: “After a tough few months and a strange season unlike anything I have experienced in my career comes the Euros.

    “I have fought and worked every day, in body and soul, to be able to reach 100 per cent for Real Madrid and the national team but things don’t always work out the way we’d like.

    “It pains me not to have been able to help my team more and not to play for Spain but, in this case, the best thing to do is rest, fully recover and come back next year like we’ve always done.

    "It hurts not to represent your country, but I have to be honest and sincere.”

    Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold is ‘not expecting’ to make Gareth Southgate’s Euro 2020 England squad.

    The right-back, 22, was a shock omission for the World Cup qualifiers back in March.

    He bounced back from that setback with a string of impressive displays for the Reds to help them secure Champions League qualification.

    His chances of earning an international recall for the showpiece were boosted even further when Uefa ruled teams could choose 26 players instead of 23 for the tournament.

    Now The Athletic reports he is set to miss out and there has been no contact between England boss Southgate or anyone in his camp and Alexander-Arnold.

    However, it does state there is still time for that to happen ahead of the squad announcement tomorrow.


    Here is the Spain squad for Euro 2020. Manager Luis Enrique decided to pick only 24 players instead of the 26 he was allowed to select.

    And that includes the omission of long-time centre-back Sergio Ramos. Bold from the ex-Barcelona boss.

    Goalkeepers: David de Gea, Robert Sanchez, Unai Simon

    Defenders: Aymeric Laporte, Jose Gaya, Jordi Alba, Pau Torres, Eric Garcia, Diego Llorente, Cesar Azpilicueta

    Midfielders: Marcos Llorente, Sergio Busquets, Rodri, Pedri, Thiago, Koke, Fabian

    Forwards: Dani Olmo, Mikel Oyarzabal, Gerard Moreno, Alvaro Morata, Ferran Torres, Adama Traore, Pablo Sarabia

      Spain have sensationally dropped captain Sergio Ramos from their Euro 2020 squad.

      Boss Luis Enrique has decided to axe the nation’s most-capped player for the summer showpiece.

      Ramos only managed 21 appearances in all competitions for Los Blancos and has paid the price for his lack of fitness.

      And amazingly it is the first time EVER that no Madrid player has been included in a Spanish squad for a major tournament.

      Luis Enrique said: “It was a very difficult decision but Ramos has not been able to compete or train very much recently.

      “I would have liked Ramos to be in the squad but I did not think it was viable because he has practically been unable to compete.”


      Nick Pope is set to miss out on Euro 2020, after Sean Dyche confirmed that he'll be undergoing a 'minor knee operation' next week.

      The Burnley stopper started England's last three games in March, when Jordan Pickford was missing with an injury of his own.

      But a knee problem that has ruled him out of the Clarets' last three games is set to see him miss out on competing with Pickford for his place.

      Speaking to BT Sport ahead of today's final day clash with Sheffield United, Dyche said: "Unfortunately, Nick is going to need a minor operation on his knee this week.

      "That’s not ideal for him or us and possibly for the England team. We’ll wait and see.

      "It’s nothing too serious, we don’t think, but it still needed doing.

      "He was trying to get right for this game to give it a test but didn’t quite come through in training, so he and we have had to make a judgement call on that.

      "It’s mainly down to him and he knows what he’s got to do. He’ll have that (the operation) done this week and hopefully, it will settle down for a quick recovery."

      RAM BLOW

      Aaron Ramsey has handed Wales another injury worry less than three weeks before Euro 2020.

      The Juventus midfielder, 30, missed the Serie A final day clash at Bologna yesterday with a muscular problem.

      Ramsey, who has been plagued by fitness issues in his two seasons in Italy, is still expected to join up with Wales for their pre-Euro training camp in Portugal today .

      Ramsey will be assessed for the muscle fatigue but is likely to be picked in Robert Page’s 26-man squad named on May 30 – regardless of the latest injury setback.

      But the ex-Arsenal star, who was in the Euro 2016 Team of the tournament following Wales’ glorious run to the semi-finals, will need to be managed at the finals this time around as the Dragons have three group games in nine days.

      Wales kick off their Euros campaign against Switzerland in Baku in 19 days’ time on June 12 before taking on Turkey and Italy.

      Jordan Henderson expects to be fit to lead England at next month's European Championships.

        WALES 28-MAN SQUAD

        The big news this morning is that Hal Robson-Kanu has been left out of Wales' 28-man Euro training camp squad.

        This will later be trimmed down to 26, but Robson-Kanu – who scored a sensational goal for Wales against Belgium at Euro 2016 – will not feature.

        Wales squad: Wayne Hennessey, Danny Ward, Adam Davies, James Lawrence, Ben Davies, Joe Rodon, Chris Mepham, Chris Gunter, Rhys Norrington-Davies, Neco Williams, Joe Allen, Joe Morrell, Ethan Ampadu, Matthew Smith, Jonathan Williams, Kieffer Moore, Aaron Ramsey, Harry Wilson, Gareth Bale, David Brooks, Tyler Roberts, Tom Lawrence, Rabbi Matondo, Dylan Levitt, Tom Lockyer, Rubin Colwill, Mark Harris, George Thomas.
