Uncapped Man United star could replace crocked Arsenal ace for England

England manager Roy Hodgson was watching Manchester United star Jesse Lingard against West Ham United as he considers taking the midfielder to EURO 2016 in place of Danny Welbeck, according to reports from the Mirror.

The England squad for the European Championships was set to be revealed this Thursday, but after a series of fitness issues, the roster has been delayed until next week.

This has therefore given Hodgson some time to contemplate his final squad, especially after the news that Gunners attacker Danny Welbeck could miss the competition with a new knee injury.

And it is speculated that Lingard is one of the candidates to replace Welbeck, despite the 23-year-old not having a single senior cap to his name thus far.

Lingard managed to play seven minutes as a substitute against West Ham on Tuesday, but is expected to get a longer run-out this weekend when Man United face Bournemouth at home.
