Gareth Southgate says he faces a “complicated” task to pick his Euro 2024 squad – as Lewis Dunk hopes to be on the plane.

The Albion skipper had a mixed evening for England as he played a full 90 minutes in the 2-2 draw with Belgium.

He generally produced a sound display, while not as influential on the ball as he tends to be for his club.

He won headers leading to Jude Bellingham’s last-minute equaliser and an earlier goal by Jarrod Bowen which was disallowed.

But much attention focused on his misjudgement which contributed to the second Belgian goal.

Dunk missed out to Romelu Lukaku, the man who also caused him problems when playing for Roma in the Europa League.

The first step for Dunk will be to keep his place in the provisional squad ahead of the tournament.

England boss Southgate said: “It’s going to be complicated, because firstly the injury situations that we have.

“Some will be back playing at the weekend, some will be back playing in a couple of weeks, some will be really close to the end of the season.

“Then we’re going to have the European finals, the FA Cup final and the two friendlies that we’ve got ourselves.

“It’s inevitable we’re going to be naming a longer squad, which is what we did before the Euros here even though we were dealing with 26 then.

“We really don’t know (how many will be in the provisional squad) because there are so many questions on the injuries at the moment.

“But we’ve gained valuable information about so many players this this week.”

Dunk has been a regular in recent squads when fit and was being quoted as odds-on to go to Germany ahead of this international window.

According to, he has now drifted to 11/8, but those prices are likely to reflect perceived public reaction to the last two games.
