The teenager was named in the Three Lions’ provisional 33-man squad for the tournament after a fine end to the season with the Red Devils.
Greenwood’s place in the full squad was in the balance but the 19-year-old has made Gareth Southgate’s decision easier by withdrawing himself in order to fully recuperate from the unspecified issue.
‘Mason Greenwood has withdrawn from provisional England Euro 2021 squad in order to recover fully from an underlying injury that also kept him out of the U21 Euros in March,’ a statement from United read.
‘Mason’s club appearances were managed carefully to maintain his availability through the intensive 20/21 PL + and EL schedule but a further spell of tournament football would not be beneficial + Mason will remain at Man Utd to recuperate and prepare for pre-season training.’
