England squad confirmed for Euro 2024 qualifiers
England manager Gareth Southgate has picked striker Ivan Toney in the squad for the Euro 2024 qualifiers against Italy and Ukraine this month. Brentford’s Toney, 27, is the second-highest English goalscorer in the Premier League this season with 16 goals, behind Tottenham’s Harry Kane. However, he is facing a potential ban from the game having accepted breaking Football Association betting rules.
England travel to Italy on 23 March and host Ukraine at Wembley on 26 March. The games will be England’s first since they were knocked out by France at the quarter-final stage of the 2022 World Cup in December.
Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold is one of five players from the World Cup squad who have not been included by Southgate this time around. The others are defenders Conor Coady and Ben White, while striker Callum Wilson and the injured Raheem Sterling also miss out.
Goalkeepers: Jordan Pickford (Everton), Nick Pope (Newcastle), Aaron Ramsdale (Arsenal)
Defenders: Ben Chilwell (Chelsea), Eric Dier (Tottenham), Marc Guehi (Crystal Palace), Reece James (Chelsea), Harry Maguire (Manchester United), Luke Shaw (Manchester United), John Stones (Manchester City), Kieran Trippier (Newcastle United), Kyle Walker (Manchester City)

Forwards: Phil Foden (Manchester City), Jack Grealish (Manchester City), Harry Kane (Tottenham), Marcus Rashford (Manchester United), Bukayo Saka (Arsenal), Ivan Toney (Brentford)
