Uefa is considering increasing squad sizes for this summer’s European Championship in Germany to 26 players, following talks with coaches.

Discussions with international bosses whose teams had qualified for Euro 2024,were held in Dusseldorf on Monday.

The subject was discussed as part of a wider two-day workshop for finalists, and now goes to Uefa’s national team competitions committee, then its executive committee.

Squads are currently limited to 23 players, a return to the regulations used prior to Euro 2020. For that tournament, three further players were allowed to mitigate against the impact of potential Covid outbreaks in the squad.
