🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 Breaking: England replace injured Man United goalie Henderson

Sheffield United goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale is headed to the 2020 Euros following Dean Henderson withdrawing due to a hip injury.

The 24-year-old Ramsdale was initially in Gareth Southgate's 33-man preliminary squad before the manager excluded him from the final group.

With Henderson forced out, and UEFA allowing replacements in such cases, Ramsdale will undergo a Covid-19 before joining with his Three Lions countrymen.

Full England statement:

"Sheffield United goalkeeper called into EURO 2020 squad to replace Dean Henderson
Aaron Ramsdale has replaced Dean Henderson in England’s UEFA EURO 2020 squad.

"Henderson withdraws with a hip issue that would continue to limit his involvement in training throughout the tournament.

"Under UEFA regulations, squads are permitted to replace goalkeepers on medical grounds at any stage.

"The Manchester United goalkeeper will now return to his club for further assessment and rehabilitation ahead of the 2021-22 season.

"Ramsdale was originally a member of Gareth Southgate’s pre-tournament group in Middlesbrough having played for England at this year’s UEFA U21 EURO in Slovenia in March.

"The Sheffield United player, a 2017 UEFA U19 EURO winner, will now follow standard COVID-19 testing protocol before entering the camp," the note concluded.

Up next for England is the visit of British foes Scotland in London on Friday.
