Jack Grealish and Jadon Sancho remain on course for England’s European Championship’s squad despite Jesse Lingard’s emergence as an option for Gareth Southgate.

It is not certain Jesse Lingard will make the squad despite his recent return to the set-up
But Sportsmail understands Grealish and Sancho, who would be in direct opposition with Lingard for a place in the squad, remain firmly in Southgate’s thoughts as he finalises his plans for the Euros.
Lingard’s re-emergence during his loan spell at West Ham has provided Southgate with a huge boost ahead of this summer’s tournament.
The attacker played a key role for England at the World Cup in 2018, but lost his place in the squad last year after falling out of favour at Manchester United.
But he’s been revitalised at the London Stadium and is now pushing hard for a place in Southgate’s final Euros party.
