What are the latest squad developments?

Uefa have confirmed that nations can now name a 26-man squad for the tournament, three more than the usual quota, which might make some of Gareth Southgate's selection decisions a little easier.

Currently, Southgate is waiting anxiously to discover if Harry Maguire, Jack Grealish and Jordan Henderson will be fit enough to make it due to injury concerns.

Southgate will name his final squad on Tuesday May 25, but a potential headache could be the number of players involved in European finals with Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City. The Europa League final is on May 26 with the Champions League final on May 29.

England are due to face Austria and Romania on June 2 and 6 respectively in their final warm-up games.
