UEFA considering Euro 2024 squad announcement delay

UEFA have been asked to delay the deadline for squad submissions for Euro 2024, Sky Sports News has been told.

Several countries have raised concerns that, with the last round of friendly internationals finishing just two hours before the final squad lists must be registered on Friday June 7, there will be very little time to assess any potential injuries before player names must be submitted to UEFA at midnight.

England end their tournament preparations against Iceland at Wembley while Scotland face Finland at Hampden Park.

However, it's unlikely that UEFA will move the deadline because their regulations state that final squads must be registered seven days before the tournament kicks off, with hosts Germany playing Scotland on June 14.

It is also within the existing UEFA rules that players can be replaced in squads any time up to the tournament's opening match so long as there is medical proof that they have an injury preventing them from playing.
