Jadon Sancho and Jude Bellingham in England squad for UEFA Euro 2020

Borussia Dortmund pair Jadon Sancho and Jude Bellingham have been named in Gareth Southgate's final 26-man squad for England's upcoming UEFA Euro 2020 campaign.

England manager Southgate had to cut six players from his provisional 33-man squad, with Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood having already withdrawn through injury.

Sancho and Bellingham have impressed for Dortmund this season, helping Die Schwarzgelben qualify for next season's UEFA Champions League as well as lifting the DFB Cup with victory over RB Leipzig in May.

Sancho, a winger, contributed 16 goals and 20 assists in all competitions, while central midfielder Bellingham racked up 46 games - 33 of them starts - despite his tender 17 years of age.

Sancho has three goals and five assists since making his debut for England against Croatia in October 2018, and he was joined in the senior international set-up by his BVB clubmate in November 2020.

England renew their rivalry with Croatia in their Group D opener on 13 June, before taking on Scotland and the Czech Republic.

England squad in full:

Goalkeepers: Jordan Pickford (Everton), Dean Henderson (Man Utd), Sam Johnstone (West Brom)

Defenders: Kyle Walker (Man City), John Stones (Man City), Harry Maguire (Man Utd), Kieran Trippier (Atletico Madrid), Ben Chilwell (Chelsea), Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Luke Shaw (Man Utd), Tyrone Mings (Aston Villa), Reece James (Chelsea), Conor Coady (Wolves)
