Manchester United striker Mason Greenwood has left the England Euro 2020 squad due to injury, the club announced on Tuesday. The 19-year-old was named in Gareth Southgate‘s provisional 33-man pool, which is to be reduced to 26 ahead of the tournament. Southgate will nominate its final team of 26 people for the tournament on Tuesday.
Greenwood, who made his international debut in September last year, will not be selected after United said the player in the competition would not be “beneficial” given the continuing injury problem. However, United says they will remain in Manchester to deal with an “underlying injury”.
Greenwood will miss Euro 2020
The England international will not feature at Euro 2020. As per the official media of the club, the 19-year-old forward will be unable to play for England due to a long-term injury that has plagued him. The 19-year-old was expected to participate in Gareth Southgate’s expanded 26-man party for Euro 2020, after returning to training at the end of last season.
Mason Greenwood made his international debut in September last year. He has scored 12 goals in 52 appearances in all competitions for United this season and played 100 minutes in last week’s Europa League final defeat to Villarreal. Greenwood played 31 games for Man Utd in the 2020/21 season in the EPL and scored 7 goals.
“Manchester United striker Mason Greenwood has retired from England’s Euro 2020 temporary squad to make a full recovery, which also ruled him out of the European Under-21 Championship in March,” according to a club statement.
“Mason’s club presence has been carefully managed to maintain his availability through the intensive 2020/21 Premier League and Europa League programs. But an extra period of tournament football will not be beneficial, and Mason will remain at Manchester United to recover and prepare for pre-season training.”
