A Liverpool defender that was playing for Bristol Rovers over a year ago is now expected to make England’s UEFA EURO 2024 squad.

Former Bristol Rovers loanee Jarell Quansah is expected to be named in the provisional England squad for UEFA EURO 2024.

Gareth Southgate is to announce this afternoon (2.00 pm) which players will be in contention to represent the Three Lions in Germany this summer. Sky Sports News and The Times journalist Paul Joyce are both reporting that Quansah is set to be included, earning his first call-up to the senior team.

The Reds opted to keep hold of Quansah rather than loan him out and he found himself breaking in to the first-team. He played in 33 matches in all competitions, helping Liverpool win the Carabao Cup, as well as finishing third in the Premier League. Quansah was on target for Liverpool on the final day of the season, scoring in a 2-0 win against Wolves which was to be Jurgen Klopp's final game in charge.

“At the end of the day, managers come and go,” said Quansah who will now have to impress Arne Slot when the Feyenoord boss takes charge in the summer.

‘As a player, it is about impressing the manager who is in charge. That is the life of a footballer.

‘From when you’re young, you are just trying to play for contracts and trying to stay for as long as you can. That has always been my aim.

‘The gaffer has done a great job in building a foundation. The dressing room is full of winners.”

Quansah's England call-up represents a meteroic rise for a player that was playing in League One just last season. He appeared 16 times for the Gas and kept three clean sheets during his time at the Memorial Stadium. His last game for the club was a 3-2 defeat to Bolton Wanderers on May 7 2023, and now just a year later he finds himself potentially representing his country at a major tournament.
