Aston Villa fans fume as Ezri Konsa is not named in Gareth Soutgate's England Euro 2020 squad

Hype for Euro 2020 has well and truly begun as Gareth Southgate named his 33-man provisional squad for the competition.

The 23-year-old defender, who Dean Smith signed for £12m according to BBC Sport, has formed a solid partnership with Mings this season. The duo have kept 15 clean sheets in the Premier League this campaign.

Konsa’s form this year had many fans and pundits believing that the defender could have an outside chance of making Southgate’s England squad. However, the Villa rock was not even named in the provisional squad of 33, which will be cut to 26 next week.
