JESSE Lingard is one of the seven players trimmed from England's squad for the upcoming European Championships.

The Longford-born midfielder has not made the final 26-man party for Euro 2020 named by Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate this afternoon.

That is despite the former William Beamont High School pupil ending the Premier League season in superb form on loan at West Ham United.

Lingard scored nine goals in 16 appearances for the Hammers as he helped them qualify for next season's Europa League and that form was rewarded with a place in Southgate's provisional 33-man squad.

However, he will now miss out on the chance of adding to his 27 England caps at the tournament, which gets underway next week.

 He could do so before it starts, however, with Southgate confirming those cut from his squad could still play in pre-tournament friendlies against Austria tomorrow and Romania on Sunday.
