Uncapped defenders Ben Godfrey and Ben White were among the provisional 33-man squad for Euro 2020 named by England manager Gareth Southgate on Tuesday.

Southgate has a week before he has to trim his squad to 26 for the finals which start on June 11.

The England boss will hope to avoid any injuries, with 12 of the provisional squad involved in European finals this week. Those involved in the two finals will have “a period of rest” before joining up with the squad, he added.

The two major omissions were Leeds United striker Patrick Bamford and Tottenham Hotspur defender Eric Dier.

Manchester United take on Villarreal for the Europa League on Wednesday before Manchester City and Chelsea face off in an all-English Champions League final on Saturday.

United and Liverpool captains Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson as well as Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips are all included in Southgate’s squad despite injury doubts.

“I think our situation is more complicated than any other country at the moment, so we were always going to need some additional players for the first part of our camp,” Southgate said about naming an extended squad.

“We felt that more time would allow us to make better decisions. There are a lot of unknowns, and information and evidence is really important when you’re making decisions. We’ll have a lot more in the next seven days.”

Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold is among four right-backs amid speculation he is set to miss out on the final squad despite a return to form in the final weeks of the season.

England face Austria on June 2 and Romania four days later in pre-tournament friendlies at Middlesbrough’s Riverside Stadium.

The Three Lions begin their Euro 2020 campaign against Croatia on June 13 before facing Scotland and the Czech Republic in Group D.

The future of England captain Harry Kane at club level could become a distraction during the tournament after the Premier League Golden Boot winner announced his desire to leave Tottenham last week.

But Southgate dismissed the chance of any deal happening during the Euro despite reported interest from City, United and Chelsea.

“I don’t think I need to have a conversation with Harry Kane regarding focus or professionalism,” added Southgate.

“He has got one goal while with us and that’s to win a European Championship.

“What’s going on with his club is a matter for him and Tottenham. He’s made some statements in the last few days so in many respects that’s out of the way now.

“I think it’s very unlikely that transfer deals will be done while we are away.

“I’m very realistic about those things, we are not going to stop phones ringing, we can’t control conversations going on in private, but most deals are done at the end of tournaments or in the first week after the end of the season.

“I would expect anything involving our players to be after the tournament.”

Even with selecting 33, Southgate has left out some experienced internationals. Tottenham pair Dier and Dele Alli, both regulars in the run to the World Cup semi-finals three years ago, are omitted. The back-up goalkeeper in Russia, Nick Pope, is unavailable because he needs knee surgery.
