Heaton Makes Nations League Finals Squad

16 May 2019

Clarets captain Tom Heaton has been named in the England squad for the inaugural Nations League finals next month.

The Three Lions are one of four teams competing for the trophy in early June, along with host country Portugal, Holland and Switzerland.

And Heaton, who returned to the England squad in March for the first time since winning his third England cap against France in Paris in June, 2017, has made the cut for the prestigious tournement.

However, James Tarkowski, who also returned to the Three Lions earlier this year after missing the last two rounds of internationals in the autumn, misses out on the final 27-man squad.

England face Holland in Guimaraes on Thursday, June 6, 24 hours after the first semi-final between Portgual and Switzerland.

The two winners face-off in the final in Porto on Sunday, June 9, with a third-place play-off for the two losers earlier in the day.
