Gareth Southgate has conceded that any players involved in the Champions League final are likely to miss a large chunk of England’s vital Euro 2024 preparations.

The national team were handed a favourable draw in Hamburg on Saturday night, with England facing Denmark, Serbia and Slovenia in Group C when the tournament kicks off.

Southgate can now formalise the team’s preparations but realises any involvement of his players in European finals will have a significant impact on his plans. The final day of the Premier League season is May 19, meaning the majority of England players will have a break between the end of the domestic campaign and the start of the Euro 2024 training camp, with the first warm-up game pencilled in for June 3.

Harry Kane’s Bundesliga season ends on May 18, Jude Bellingham’s La Liga campaign ends eight days later — as does Fikayo Tomori’s at AC Milan.

The Saudi Pro League, where vice captain Jordan Henderson plays, reaches its conclusion on May 27.
