Gareth Southgate names provisional England squad as Newcastle United decisions made

Anthony Gordon and Kieran Trippier have been included in Gareth Southgate's provisional England squad for Euro 2024.

The Newcastle United duo are the only Magpies stars included, with both men expected to make the final 26-man squad when it is announced before the Germany showpiece. Unfortunately it is bad news for other Newcastle hopefuls, including Nick Pope, Lewis Hall, Tino Livramento and Callum Wilson.

Pope was a key part of Southgate's plans as recently as the 2022 Qatar World Cup but lost his place on the international stage in recent months to the likes of Aaron Ramsdale and Sam Johnstone. This time around Burnley stopper James Trafford, a player Newcastle have interest in, and Dean Henderson have made the provisional cut.

Pope recently returned from a dislocated shoulder but only featured once before the Premier League campaign ended. His showing in the 4-2 win at Brentford on Sunday was promising and he has been included in Newcastle's 29-man squad for the Australia trip.

Livramento is currently out injured after picking up an injury in the final weeks of the season. The defender was ruled out of the last two Premier League games and is recovering on Tyneside, rather than in Melbourne with his peers.

Wilson is another who has been sidelined through injury in recent months but recently returned to first-team action. Like Pope, Wilson was involved in Qatar less than two years ago but has since lost his place to fellow strikers such as Ollie Watkins and Ivan Toney.

Gordon's position in the provisional squad has been in doubt after the winger missed the season finale at Brentford with an Achilles injury sustained at Manchester United last week. The attacker looks to have overcome the issue and will be hoping to add to his 21 goal involvements this season in Germany next month.

Trippier has also overcome late injury nerves to make sure he is fit enough to be in Southgate's summer plans. The defender knows this could be his last major tournament with the Three Lions and has worked tirelessly to overcome his recent calf problem.
