Jesse Lingard, James Ward-Prowse and Ollie Watkins were among the six names cut from Gareth Southgate's England Euros squad as Trent Alexander-Arnold got the nod.
The Three Lions boss last week made the decision to name a provisional 33-man squad rather than his final 26-strong selection due to players' injury concerns and continental cup final commitments.
Southgate has now finalised his Euro 2020 selection, trimming six players after Mason Greenwood withdrew through injury on the morning of the announcement.
Lingard, Ward-Prowse and Watkins missed out, along with the uncapped trio of Aaron Ramsdale, Ben Godfrey and Ben White.
Southgate selected four central midfielders, with 17-year old Jude Bellingham being picked alongside Jordan Henderson, Kalvin Phillips and Declan Rice.
Gareth Southgate says it is going to be "tight" for defender Harry Maguire to be fit for his side's European Championship opener against Croatia on 13 June.
The Manchester United centre-back has been named in the squad for the tournament despite currently nursing an ankle ligament injury.
He is yet to join up with the group as he quarantines following his return from United’s Europa League final defeat in Poland and Southgate says he is a doubt for the game at Wembley. However, the boss had no hesitation in including him in his squad.
"It is going to be tight for the first game, there is no question," Southgate said.
"He is such a good player and because we had the additional size of squad, we wanted to take that opportunity to bring him into the squad.
"We know exactly where he is at, he has not travelled yet to us because of the quarantine issues coming back from Poland.
"He has got a bit to do. Like Hendo (Jordan Henderson), they have both got a bit to do.
"We feel the possibility is they can play a part and the fact they are such fantastic characters around the group, especially with the younger ones, given we were able to pick 26 we felt the opportunity to have those two with us is straightforward."
