Harry Maguire has spoken of his devastation at missing out on a place in England's final 26-man squad for the European Championships in Germany.

Maguire has not been included in Gareth Southgate's group for the tournament which kicks off for the Three Lions against Serbia in Gelsenkirchen on June 16 having been unable to overcome injury, but there is a place for Jarrod Bowen.

The former Hull City star was forced to miss the final weeks of Manchester United's Premier League campaign including their memorable FA Cup final win over arch-rivals Manchester City at Wembley.

"I am devastated not to have been selected to play for England at the Euros this summer," the ex-City defender wrote on social media, joining Tottenham's James Maddison in confirming his omission.

"Despite my best efforts, I have not been able to overcome an injury to my calf. Maybe I pushed myself too hard, to try and make it. Simply, I am absolutely gutted.

"For me, representing England is the highest honour. It means everything to me. If I can’t help the team as a player, I will support them as a fan – along with the rest of the country. Go and win it boys. Next, I will return to the supervision of the Manchester United medical team in order to prepare for next season."

While Maguire will not be involved in Germany, another former City man will be with Jarrod Bowen's terrific form for West Ham this season rewarded with a place on the plane.

Boss Southgate must cut his 33-man squad to 26 by 11pm on Friday night just after England's final warm-up game against Iceland in front of a sold-out crowd at Wembley.
