England name Euro 2016 squad

By May 16, 2016No Comments

England have named their squad list ahead of Euro 2016 and it includes some shock names.

Danny Drinkwater and Jamie Vardy claim their places following their heroic efforts for Leicester this season, while Tottenham have no less than five players included after challenging for the title.

Hodgson has made some decisions which will come as a surprise however Р notably, including the likes of Jack Wilshere, Andros Townsend and Marcus Rashford.

Wilshere, although regularly picked for England sides, has struggled with injuries and many critics have said he should not be picked ahead of the tournament in France, having not performed at Arsenal on a consistently high level basis enough to deserve international merit.

One player who was considered a real long shot is Andros Townsend. Though the winger has performed admirably well for his relegated Newcastle side since joining from Tottenham in January, his inclusion comes as a surprise considering his form has only really picked up in the later months of the season.

Marcus Rashford has done well for Manchester United this season, weighing in with some much needed goals, including one against rivals Manchester City in the derby clash. Although at just 18 years only and having made fewer than 20 appearances for the Old Trafford outfit, some may question whether he is ready to step up and be a key part of a major tournament. Although, he need look no further for advice than from strike partner and United colleague Wayne Rooney, who took Euro 2004 by storm at the same age and now is now the England captain.

Goalkeepers: Joe Hart, Fraser Forster, Tom Heaton

Defenders: Ryan Bertrand, Gary Cahill, Nathaniel Clyne, Danny Rose, Chris Smalling, John Stones, Kyle Walker

Midfielders: Delle Alli, Ross Barkley, Fabian Delph, Eric Dier, Danny Drinkwater, Jordan Henderson,  Adam Lallana, James Milner, Raheem Sterling, Andros Townsend, Jack Wilshere

Forwards: Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford, Wayne Rooney, Daniel Sturridge, Jamie Vardy
