Roy Hodgson has announced England’s official 23-man squad for the coming European Championship in France.
26 players had been involved in the Three Lions’ provisional squad, which partook in friendly wins over Turkey and Australia, but Hodgson has whittled it down to the following 23 names for their final warm-up fixture against Portugal on Thursday and of course, Euro 2016:
Fabian Delph was ruled out last week after coming off against Australia with a groin strain, whilst Roy Hodgson has also elected to cut winger Andros Townsend – a surprise inclusion in his provisional squad anyway – and midfielder Danny Drinkwater, who lifted the Premier League title with Leicester City last season.
Meanwhile, despite making his international debut just a matter of days ago, Manchester United youngster Marcus Rashford has made the squad for the tournament in France.
England face Russia, Wales and Slovakia in Group B, with their tournament set to kick off on June 11th.
