England Euro 2024 Squad | Kelly Somers, Sam Matterface & Steve Freeth

With competition for places in Gareth Southgate's England squad as fierce as ever, Steve Freeth, Kelly Somers and Sam Matterface take a look at fringe players who will be looking to force their way into the reckoning in time for the Euros next summer.

With England's qualification campaign set to begin with difficult assignments against Italy and Ukraine, manager Gareth Southgate has selected his first internationals squad since the Three Lions exited the Qatar World Cup in the quarter-finals against France in December.

There were some big name omissions, with Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold and Arsenal's Ben White left out, whilst established members Raheem Sterling, Mason Mount and Marcus Rashford are unavailable through injury.

As ever, the latest England squad announcement has ignited debates amongst fans with regards to which unselected players deserved recognition, with many loitering on the fringes of the international side with next summer's Euros now likely to be the target for many of these hopefuls.

18-year-old Manchester City full-back Rico Lewis certainly appears an international player in the making following some eye-catching performances for Pep Guardiola's side, with fellow youngster Harvey Elliott also awaiting a first senior England call-up despite regular gametime for Liverpool.

Brighton's Solly March is another who may be knocking on the door after a breakthrough season in the Premier League, with the attacking midfielder having registered 13 goal contributions in all competitions so far this season with Roberto De Zerbi taking his game to a new level.
