England Euro 2020 Squad, Schedule And Journey Analysed
There is strong competition within the England squad for the Euro 2020. Gareth Southgate has a hard task in front of him in picking the best possible team for the 2020 European Championship.
The Three Lions absolutely flew through the qualifiers, losing just one game against the Czech Republic back in October 2019. They scored 37 goals and conceded only 6 to top their group and get placed alongside Croatia and the Czech Republic (again) in Group D of Euro 2020.

England Euro 2020 Squad Key Players
Harry Kane is obviously the leading man for England scoring-wise. He proved his mettle during the 2018 FIFA World Cup, scoring 6 goals in the tournament and winning the Golden Boot. There is a reason why Gareth Southgate made him the captain. Kane is in his prime and has showcased an ability to lead back in the Tottenham ranks. His strength to hold off opponents, ability to create plays and score clinically are all traits required in a top number nine. Kane boasts of those tremendously and more.
Rashford is no longer a youth prospect and you need to get used that. 14 goals in 22 games for Manchester United this season before the 21-year-old picked up a back injury. He has taken his game to the next level and deserves a big role in this England side possibly even over Raheem Sterling on the left flank.
One of the senior figures of the team and a key cog in Southgate’s high-intensity system. Henderson was quite often the sole central figure for England during the 2018 World Cup and we got to see why. He is adept at doing all the dirty work for his side while also launching his side’s attacks with the help around him. The 29-year-old has come quite a long way since his days of being criticised for his touch or rather a lack of one. Henderson’s greatest trait might be his perseverance and that has seen him grow into an instrumental player at both club and country level.
Move over Kieran Tripper, it is Trent Alexander-Arnold who will be manning the right flank this Euros. The 21-year-old has continued to develop at a meteoric rate and will only be looking to shift his Premier League winning form onto the international stage. Harry Kane will be lying in wait every time for a delivery whenever Alexander-Arnold gets the ball.
