Johnstone EURO 2020

Sam Johnstone has been named in Gareth Southgate’s final 26-man England squad for UEFA Euro 2020.

Johnstone’s inclusion caps off an impressive campaign having recently collected a trio of Albion accolades on the day he was selected in the Three Lions’ provisional squad - Stanley Black & Decker Players’ Player of the Year, Ideal Heating Supporters’ Player of the Year and The Albion Foundation’s PFA Community Champion Award.

The Baggies No.1 received his first senior call-up back in March, and Sam will have his sights set on making his debut in friendlies against Austria (Wednesday, June 2) or Romania (Sunday June 6) ahead of the tournament.
