Three Manchester United players have been selected in England's senior training squad for the Euro 2024 warm-up friendlies against Bosnia & Herzegovina and Iceland.

Harry Maguire, Kobbie Mainoo and Luke Shaw are all included in Gareth Southgate's 33-man group for the Three Lions' final fixtures before the tournament in Germany.

England face Bosnia at St James' Park on Monday 3 June, before hosting Iceland at Wembley on Friday 7 June.

The final 26-man squad for the Euros will be confirmed the following day.

Reds nominated for Fans' Team of the Season


Dalot, Fernandes and Onana are shortlisted for the official Premier League XI, and you can help them get in.

The Euros campaign kicks off in Gelsenkirchen on Monday 16 June, when the Euro 2020 runners-up take on Serbia.

Denmark, who could have United pair Christian Eriksen and Rasmus Hojlund in their ranks, and Slovenia complete Group C.

Shaw has been sidelined since 18 February and suffered a setback in his bid to return to action before the end of the Premier League season.

Southgate admits he is keen to have the left-back involved, despite his lack of action, with the defender scoring in the last final of the competition, the penalty shootout defeat to Italy at Wembley in 2021.

"He's up against it," said Southgate, at a press conference discussing his squad. "He's missed a lot of football. The fact that he has been our first choice in that position, we've probably given him a lot longer than we would have done. I'm not sure what's realistic at this time. I have to say, he's a long shot."

Southgate explained the omission of Marcus Rashford by saying he felt others in his position had better campaigns.

“These are, of course, difficult calls," he added. “You're talking about players that are very good players and have been an important part of what we've done over a number of years.

“With Marcus, I just feel other players in that area of the pitch have had better seasons. It's as simple as that.”

Rashford responding by posting on social media to declare: “Wishing Gareth and the boys all the best for the upcoming tournament.”

Rashford appeared in six of England's eight qualifiers.
