Southgate will announce a final 26-man England squad ahead of the tournament. The final announcement is set to take place on June 7. England finished runner-ups in Euro 2020 as they suffered a penalty shootout defeat to Italy in the final.

Apart from Rashford, other big names like Ben Chilwell, Raheem Sterling, Jadon Sancho, Reece James, and more have missed out on the provisional squad.

Gareth Southgate has claimed that other players in the attack had a better season than Marcus Rashford. That has played a part in his decision not to include Rashford in the England squad for Euro 2024. Southgate said (via Fabrizio Romano on X):

“I just feel other players in that area of the pitch have had better seasons. That’s it.”

While Rashford hasn’t made the cut, in-form players like Eberechi Eze, Ollie Watkins, Ivan Toney, Anthony Gordon, and more have been called up for the provisional 33-man squad.
