Rashford, 26, has struggled this season on club level with only seven Premier League goals.

The forward has been a regular for England since 2016, having earned 60 caps and scoring 17 goals.

He was a member of the team for the 2018 and 2022 World Cup as well as the Euros in 2016 and 2020.

However, Southgate took the strong and shock decision to overlook the attacker for the upcoming tournament in Germany.

Rashford joins the likes of Jordan Henderson, Ben Chilwell and Reece James who have not been called by Southgate.

The manager is set to pick a provisional 30-plus squad ahead of the summer’s competition.

‘Mr Conservate takes machete to squad’

By Jordan Davies

INTERNATIONAL football’s Mr Conservative has taken a machete to his squad in one of the most brutal England squad shake-ups in recent memory.

Gareth Southgate has built a reputation in the Three Lions hot-seat by sticking to what he knows, and who he knows, in order to navigate major tournaments without any dramas.

Reliable, experienced faces with trust in the bank and little to no surprises on offer that have managed to reach finals and semi-finals in tournaments gone by.

But ahead of this summer’s Euros – a competition that England are expected to win and win well – Southgate appears to be throwing caution to the wind in a bid to excite and amaze.

Ben Chilwell, Jordan Henderson, Marcus Rashford and Raheem Sterling have all been left out of Southgate’s provisional 30-man squad – the latter three boarded the plane to Qatar in November 2022.

And in come the young guns – Crystal Palace duo Eberechi Eze and Adam Wharton, Liverpool’s Curtis Jones and Jarell Quansah, Everton’s Jarrad Branthwaite and Burnley keeper James Trafford.

Is Southgate finally picking on current form and potential instead of past heroics? It looks that way.

The future is bright, and Southgate is ready to shake things up in order to reflect that.
