Dean Henderson has been forced to withdraw from the England squad for Euro 2020, being replaced by Sheffield United stopped Aaron Ramsdale, report Sky Sports.
Henderson, along with West Brom number one Sam Johnstone, was in contention with Jordan Pickford for the starting spot in Gareth Southgate’s starting eleven in the run-up to the tournament.
While Pickford has nailed down that position between the sticks, there was always the possibility of one of the two deputies, particularly Henderson, getting an opportunity in one of England’s three group games.
However, the Manchester United man has now been forced to cut short his Euro 2020 campaign, having sustained a hip injury, being replaced by Sheffield United’s Aaron Ramsdale, who’s next in line.

Ramsdale did not previously have much hope of breaking into the squad, but injuries to Nick Pope and Dean Henderson have paved the way for him to join up with the England squad for the European Championships.
England manager Gareth Southgate will want Pickford wrapped up in cotton wool for the remainder of the tournament, because his goalkeepers are dropping like flies…
