Mason Greenwood has pulled out of England’s 33-man provisional squad for the European Championships due to a pre-existing injury.
The Manchester United winger came into the summer tournament in terrific form with six goals in his last eight Premier League matches and looked set to provide Gareth Southgate with another option in attack.
But Manchester United have released a statement that the 19-year-old will not take part in the summer tournament due to an injury that kept him out of the Under-21s European Championships in March.

A statement from Manchester United read: ‘Mason’s club appearances were managed carefully to maintain his availability through the intensive 2020/21 Premier League and Europa League schedules.
‘But a further spell of tournament football would not be beneficial and Mason will remain at Manchester United to recuperate and prepare for pre-season training.’
England manager Southgate will trim his provisional squad from 33 to 26 on Tuesday afternoon, with the Three Lions boss holding a press conference at 6pm.
