They still have a brilliant squad, but when you really look at it now it shows what a huge missed opportunity the 2018 World Cup was for them. They’ll probably never have a squad as strong as that again. Age is really setting in, and the attack is every bit as old as their defence now too.

Massive if true.
Confirmed that he's back. Pleased for him. Great for the tournament that he's there too. France squad:

GK: Lloris, Mandanda, Maignan

DEF: Dubois, Pavard, Zouma, Kounde, Varane, Lenglet, Kimpembe, Digne, L.Hernandez

MID: Kante, Pogba, Rabiot, Tolisso, Sissoko

ATT: Benzema, Giroud, Mbappe, Thuram, Coman, Ben Yedder, Griezmann, Lemar, O.Dembele
Tom commented
Strong squad, I'd have France as tournament favourites just ahead of Belgium and England
Legion commented
They will take some stopping.

Franco Pinion commented
The French squad is just ridiculous. They just added Benzema to emphasis how good they are. Maybe too many high profile forwards though, they can't play them all!

Scotland's Euros Squad announced.

Steve Clarke has included all three of the young players that a lot fans and pundits have been clamouring for. All uncapped.

Goalkeepers: Marshall, McLaughlin, Gordon.

Defenders: O'Donnell, Cooper, Gallagher, Hanley, Hendry, McKenna, Patterson, Robertson, Taylor, Tierney.

Midfielders: McGregor, Christie, McGinn, Armstrong, Fleck, Gilmour, McTominay, Turnbull.

Forwards: Nisbet, Fraser, Forrest, Dykes, Adams.
Legion commented
Decent Scottish squad but probably not enough quality in attacking positions to make much of an impression.
Ray Gin
Ray Gin commented
Given Scotland last played the Euros in 1996 (when a number of these weren’t even born yet), these players should feel proud and be looking to give a good account of themselves at the tournament.
Bandit commented
I cannot see Scotland troubling Croatia or England but I'm delighted they we are back ina major finals after so long.

Sergio Ramos not called up by Spain. Surprised by that considering the 3 extra spots in squad this time around.

Goalkeepers: Unai Simon (Athletic Bilbao), David de Gea (Manchester United), Robert Sanchez (Brighton)

Defenders: Jose Gaya (Valencia), Jordi Alba (Barcelona), Pau Torres (Villarreal), Aymeric Laporte (Manchester City), Eric Garcia (Manchester City), Diego Llorente (Leeds), Cesar Azpilicueta (Chelsea)

Midfielders: Sergio Busquets (Barcelona), Rodri (Manchester City), Pedri (Barcelona), Thiago Alcantara (Liverpool), Koke (Atletico Madrid), Fabian Ruiz (Napoli), Marcos Llorente (Atletico Madrid)

Forwards: Dani Olmo (RB Leipzig), Mikel Oyarzabal (Real Sociedad), Alvaro Morata (Juventus), Gerard Moreno (Villarreal), Ferran Torres (Manchester City), Adama Traore (Wolves), Pablo Sarabia (Paris St-Germain)
Best commented
Ramos is not fit. Enrique said he want's to keep squad competitive so didn't want to bring players who had no chance of playing.
Crabtree commented
They will miss his experience. Take Ramos for his experience, he has won 2 Euros and a World Cup. Their current squad is incredibly inexperienced.

David76 commented

Totally agree.

Calvert Lewin got 16 goals this season which is impressive, but 11 of those goals were in his first 11 games, which obviously means 5 goals in his last 27 games. The problem with a guy like Calvert Lewin too is that he is so much of a fox in the box type that he really isn't anywhere near as much use to you when he isn't scoring goals.

I would have edged Bamford ahead of Calvert Lewin in the provisional squad for the reasons above to be honest. I think you have to be almost Harry Kane level (or the kind of striker whose game isn't primarily about goals ie. Firmino or McGoldrick to mention different players with vastly contrasting skillsets and ability levels) to be getting the benefit of the doubt as a striker with 5 goals in your last 27 games.
Gromit commented
Form definitely goes against DCL..I really like him for his workrate and hold up play too though. Before he developed into a proper goalscorer (pre-Ancellotti really), he still offered an awful lot as a presence up front.

Really tough decision though, a lot of those forwards around the fringe of the squad are very similar levels (both named and unnamed). I couldn't really pick definitively between DCL, Watkins, Bamford and Antonio. For this team though, I guess you want your front man to be a physical focal point that can take the ball back to goal, lay it off and get in behind, so for that I'd look toward DCL and Bamford more-so. I really like Watkins, but he seems to drop into space and into wide channels a lot more, which might end up getting in the way of the wide forwards.

Of the 8 they've mentioned, I guess I'd go for Kane and DCL for the CF spots, and Foden, Sterling, Sancho, and Rashford for the wide forward spots.
Best commented
Lingard and Greenwood are both out of the squad with injuries

Kevin De Bruyne has an orbital fracture (I assume that's the worst of the 2).

How long are players usually out with that, will he be a doubt for the Euros? Presume he'll be in a face mask at a minimum.
