Southgate snubs Henderson in England squad for Euro 2024

England manager Gareth Southgate is set to name his provisional 30-man squad for the 2024 European Championship today and Jordan Henderson will not be on the list, according to The Athletic

Henderson has been a mainstay for England under Southgate, earning 81 caps for the Three Lions and featuring in the last six major tournaments.

However, the 33-year-old has been omitted from the provisional list after a tumultuous club campaign. 

Henderson left Liverpool for Saudi Arabian club Al-Ettifaq last summer, citing reduced playing time at Anfield as a concern. He wanted to continue playing for England. 

However, after only six months and failing to make an impact at the Middle East club, he joined Dutch giants Ajax. 

Injuries hampered his time in Amsterdam, with the midfielder making only 12 appearances across all competitions.

Southgate initially stayed loyal to Henderson. Henderson captained the team in a friendly against Australia in October but is unlikely to be selected again.

Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher is among the players who could replace the former Liverpool captain. 

Gallagher has had an outstanding season with the Blues, bagging seven goals and nine assists in 50 appearances across all competitions.

Manchester United youngster Kobbie Mainoo, Liverpool midfielder Curtis Jones and Crystal Palace star Adam Wharton are also pushing for inclusion.

Southgate will reduce the squad to 26 players before England start their tournament against Serbia on June 16.
