Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood was withdrawn from Gareth Southgate’s preliminary England national team squad with a preexisting injury. This comes just under two weeks out from the start of England’s UEFA Euro 2020 campaign, and after Greenwood’s first call up since being sent home for violating team rules last Autumn.

In a short statement from Manchester United, the club said:
“Mason’s club appearances were managed carefully to maintain his availability through the intensive 2020/21 Premier League and Europa League schedules. But a further spell of tournament football would not be beneficial and Mason will remain at Manchester United to recuperate and prepare for pre-season training.”
It’s unfortunate for Greenwood to miss the Euros, but he will now get extra time to recover after an intense 2020/21 season.
