White joins final 26-man squad ahead of James Ward-Prowse and Jesse Lingard

Ben White has been selected as Trent Alexander-Arnold’s replacement in l'Angleterre final 26-man squad for euro 2020.

The Brighton and Hove Albion defender offers extra depth at centre-back to Gareth Southgate, who is still sweating on the fitness of Harry Maguire for the forthcoming group stages.

White was left out of the initial squad having only just received his first international call-up and made his debut as a substitute in Wednesday’s 1-0 win over Austria.

The 23-year-old started and played 90 minutes in Sunday’s win against Romania and was named Brighton’s player of the season for the 2020-21 campaign earlier the same day.

White’s call up means Southgate has overlooked midfielder and set-piece specialist James Ward-Prowse, who impressed during the 1-0 victory over Romania at the Riverside Stadium.

Jesse Lingard had also hoped to replace Alexander-Arnold, who will miss the tournament with a thigh injury.
