Nick Pope has been left out of an extended England squad with the knee injury which saw him miss Burnley’s final three games of the season ruling him out of Euro 2020.

Pope was expected to be in Gareth Southgate’s final squad along with Jordan Pickford and Dean Henderson as the goalkeeping options for this summer’s tournament.

However, the knee injury that saw him miss the final three matches of the season, and for which he has since undergone surgery on, means the 29-year-old isn’t included in the squad which includes four goalkeepers.

Jordan Pickford and Dean Henderson are joined in the squad by Sam Johnstone of West Bromwich Albion and Sheffield United's Aaron Ramsdale.

Southgate has named 33 players in a training squad which will be trimmed down to 26 by June 1.

Pope started all three World Cup qualifiers in March, with Pickford absent, and has seven caps in all for his country since his debut in a friendly against Costa Rica in 2018 ahead of the World Cup in which he was named, but didn’t feature.

And he won't be making this summer's tournament because of injury in a desperately disappointing blow to the seven-time capped 'keeper.

Sean Dyche had hoped to welcome back Pope for the final match of the season against Sheffield United, but was without his ‘keeper once again, and confirmed news of the planned surgery.

He said: “It’s nothing too serious, we don’t think, but it still needed doing.

“He was trying to get right for this game to give it a test but didn’t quite come through in training, so he and we have had to make a judgement call on that.

“It’s mainly down to him and he knows what he’s got to do. He’ll have that done and hopefully it will settle down for a quick recovery.”

Southgate has named an extended squad owing to other fitness doubts in the squad, as well as this weekend’s European Cup competitions including several of his regular performers.

Manchester United, who have fitness concerns over captain Harry Maguire, are in the Europa League final on Thursday against Villarreal before Manchester City and Chelsea meet in the Champions League final on Saturday.

England host Austria next Wednesday (June 2, 8pm) and Romania four days later (Jun6, 5pm) before getting their Euro 2020 campaign underway against Croatia (June 13, 2pm).

They then face Scotland (June 18, 8pm) and Czech Republic (June 22, 8pm) when they will hope to have done enough to qualify for the knockout stages.

Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold is included, while there are also first call-ups for Ben Godfrey and Ben White, while Aston Villa striker Ollie Watkins retains his place.

Former Burnley favourite Kieran Tripper is included, but there is no place for James Tarkowski or ex-Claret Danny Ings.
