Notes

The history of the England squad for the European Championship 1992 final tournament is traced in detail elsewhere.  Injuries forced the withdrawal of four players--Lee Dixon, John Barnes, Gary M. Stevens and Mark Wright--after manager Graham Taylor announced his squad on May 18, 1992.  Wright's withdrawal came just as the squad departed for Sweden, and UEFA, after summoning him for a medical examination, refused to grant permission for Tony Adams, the 25-year-old Arsenal defender (19 caps, 4 goals), to replace him.  

Two other players who certainly would have been named to the squad but for injuries were Paul Gascoigne, the 25-year-old Tottenham Hotspur defender (20 caps, 2 goals) and Rob Jones, the 20-year-old Liverpool defender (1 cap, 0 goals).  The most notable players Taylor did not select were Chris Waddle, the 31-year-old Olympique Marseille midfielder/winger (62 caps, 6 goals), and Ian Wright, the 28-year-old Arsenal forward who had led the old First Division in scoring in its last season (5 caps, 0 goals).
