UEFA announce special rule for goalkeepers as part of EURO 2020 squad changes

UEFA have rubber-stamped 26 man squads for this summer’s Euros - and included special rules for keepers. England boss Gareth Southgate will be allowed to name three extra players for the tournament, although the match day squads will still only have 23 players.

European football’s governing body say they brought in the new rules “in light of the Covid-19 pandemic” and it also means they can call up a new keeper at any time.

International teams will have to name three keepers in the 26 man squad by June 1 - but if any of them fall ill before any match during the tournament a replacement can be called up.
