Jack Grealish and Jadon Sancho remain on track for the England European Championship team, despite the emergence of Jesse Lingard as an option for Gareth Southgate.

It is not certain that Jesse Lingard will make the selection, despite his recent return to the set-up
But Sportsmail understands that Grealish and Sancho, who would be in direct opposition to Lingard for a roster, remain firmly in Southgate’s mind as he finalizes his plans for the euro.
Lingard’s re-emergence during his loan spell at West Ham has given Southgate a huge boost ahead of this summer’s tournament.
The forward played a key role for England at the 2018 World Cup, but lost his place in the squad last year after falling out of favor with Manchester United.
But he’s been revived at the London Stadium and is now pushing hard for a place in Southgate’s latest Euros party.
