UEFA's major rule change for Euro 2024 is bad news for Mason Mount

Mason Mount has lost his place in the England squad due to his poor start to the 2023/24 season with Man United.

The Englishman is yet to contribute towards any goal in the Premier League for the Red Devils and has been dropped from Gareth Southgate’s squad.

Things might go from bad to worse for Mount when it comes to the England squad selection for Euro 2024.

Even if he ends up improving his form and ending his debut season with Man United strongly, he could miss out on the squad.

That is because UEFA will be reducing the permitted size of a participating team’s squad from 26 to 23.

A team was allowed to have 26 players in their squad in Euro 2020 due to Covid-19 measures being applied by the time.

With Gareth Southgate having a smaller squad to pick from it, he will only be picking the best and most in-form midfielders for Euro 2024.

As a result, Mount has to end the 23/24 season incredibly well for Man United and contribute to a lot of goals to save himself from being snubbed in the squad.
