Jarell Quansah missed the cut for England's Euro 2024 squad - but he will remain with the national team for now. Gareth Southgate has decided to keep Quansah with the squad as cover with a chance he could still yet earn a call-up in the case of any injuries.

Quansah was one of seven members of Southgate's initial 33-man squad who haven't made the final list. Liverpool teammate Curtis Jones has also missed out, as well as Harry Maguire, Jack Grealish, James Maddison, Jarrad Branthwaite and James Trafford.

The omission of Quansah is not a huge surprise. He was extremenly impressive for Liverpool in the midst of an injury crisis and showed his incredible abilities in the Premier League.

But his first senior England call-up was somewhat unexpected and he always appeared one of the names likely to make way when the list was cut down. However, the fact he is being kept around suggests he impressed - and he could still get his chance should an injuries arise.

England has also decided to keep Quansah involved in their warm-up game against Iceland on Friday. It means he is in line to win his first cap at Wembley.

"Jarell has stayed with us," Southgate explained. "I think he's not had an experience of an England international at Wembley, so that will be great for him to be with us for the game.

"We'll go from there. Hopefully we don't need to call anyone else in."

Southgate explained his decision to select Quansah, 21, last month. He said at the time: "Jarell had a super season with Liverpool, I mean you’ve only got to see the games that his manager picked him for.

"He was in the team and a couple of other high-profile players weren’t in that position, so that was a sign of how well Jurgen (Klopp) thought he was doing. He again has had an amazing transition this season from a loan spell further down the leagues last year [and] adapted to life in the Premier League really well.

"[He has] some great attributes as a centre-back so we’re looking forward to seeing him and building on what we saw last time with Jarrad Branthwaite as well."
