Liverpool and Tottenham stars will make themselves available for England’s Nations League semi-final against Holland… five days after Champions League final in Madrid
- Liverpool and Tottenham stars will be available for Nations League clash
- Champions League final takes place just five days before England play Holland
- Ross Barkley and Ruben Loftus-Cheek will report late due to Europa League final
Liverpool and Tottenham players will make it clear to England manager Gareth Southgate they want to be considered for the UEFA Nations League semi-final against Holland.
Internationals at both clubs will feature in the Champions League final in Madrid on June 1, five days before the game against the Dutch.
The earliest they could train with England is June 3, posing difficulties for Southgate as he prepares his team in Portugal.
Liverpool stars, like Jordan Henderson, will make themselves available for the Nations League
Danny Rose and Kieran Trippier are among the Tottenham players in the same situation
ENGLAND PLAYERS THAT COULD BE INVOLVED IN CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL
Tottenham: Trippier, Rose, Winks, Kane, Dier, Alli
Liverpool: Henderson, Lallana, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Alexander-Arnold
Up to 10 players could be involved in the Madrid final and Southgate may have to name an understrength team in Guimaraes against Ronald Koeman’s men.
Those who play in the final will make themselves available despite a tight turnaround.
Southgate has encouraged a battle for places and youngsters Jadon Sancho and Callum Hudson-Odoi have proved their class.
So players know places will be in jeopardy if they make themselves unavailable.
Ross Barkley and Ruben Loftus-Cheek will also report late due to the Europa League final
Chelsea’s Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Ross Barkley will also report late due to the Europa League final against Arsenal on May 29.
Southgate names his squad, including those involved in the European finals, on Thursday.
He will make a final decision nearer the time.
