England coach Gareth Southgate has selected a provisional 33-man squad ahead of the European Championship.

A training camp in Middlesbrough will include friendlies against Austria and Romania early next month but players from United, Manchester City and Chelsea will have been involved in the European finals.

Consequently, Southgate, who is dealing with some injury concerns, has decided to name a larger squad before submitting the final 26-man group for Euro 2020 on Tuesday 1 June.

See which United players have so far been named in their nations' squads for the upcoming European Championships.

Harry Maguire is one of six Reds included even though the centre-back is still carrying an ankle injury that could rule him out of the Europa League final against Villarreal.

Dean Henderson continues to be rewarded for his impressive season, while Luke Shaw was recalled last time out by his country and will look to compete with Chelsea's Ben Chilwell for the left-back slot.

Jesse Lingard, fresh from a superb loan spell at West Ham United, is out to make a similar impact to the one he enjoyed at the last major tournament, the 2018 World Cup finals, when he helped the team reach the semi-finals.

Forwards Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood are also on the list after their incisive attacking play this term. Rashford is a regular for his country while Greenwood only has 12 minutes of senior international football under his belt, gained in Iceland last year.

However, the 19-year-old's recent form has proved impossible to ignore and he is also in the group announced by Southgate on Tuesday.
