UEFA, the governing body of European football, is open to increasing the squads of the participating teams in the 2024 Euro after the complaints of England's Coach Gareth Southgate, and Netherlands' Coach Ronald Koeman.

UEFA agreed to approve a bigger 26-man squad instead of the current 23 for the upcoming Euro tournament in Germany.

During 2020 Euro and the 2022 World Cup, UEFA and FIFA agreed to expand their squads due to the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic. This decision was canceled for the forthcoming Euro edition.

However, the organization remains open to reconsidering this stance based on feedback from coaches.

UEFA said: "A workshop with the participating teams will be held on April 8 and on that occasion, UEFA will listen to the views of the coaches," adding: "Any idea in this respect will then be considered and assessed."
