Manchester United‘s keeper Dean Henderson withdraws from England’s Euro
2020 squad due to a hip injury.
The Football Association said Henderson had “a hip issue that would continue to limit
his involvement in training throughout the tournament” and that he was returning to
Manchester United for assessment and treatment.
Uefa regulations allow a goalkeeper to be replaced on medical grounds at any stage.
Ramsdale was in the provisional squad named by Gareth Southgate but did not make
the final 26. Sheffield United stopper Aaron Ramsdale has now been called up as his
replacement. Henderson earned his only senior Three Lions cap against Ireland in
Ramsdale, who was named in Gareth Southgate’s provisional 33-man
squad after Nick Pope was ruled out of the tournament, returns to the fold.
Under Uefa rules, teams are allowed to replace goalkeepers on medical grounds at any
time. Ramsdale, 23, had a strong season for Sheff Utd, despite their relegation.
The 2017 Under-19 European Championship winner also played for England’s Under-21s
at the Euros in March but is yet to make his senior debut.
Raheem Sterling scored the only goal of the game as the Three Lions won their first-ever
European Championship curtain-raiser.
