BREAKING: England squad announcement

Roy Hodgson has announced his England squad for the upcoming UEFA European Championships in France next month, and both Marcus Rashford and Daniel Sturridge have both made the cut.

Manchester United forward, Rashford, aged 18, has enjoyed a phenomenal rise into the Red Devils first-team over the last few months, and his form subsequently earned his senior international debut, at the Stadium of Light on Friday against Australia, where he netted the first goal in a 2-1 victory.

Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge will also be on the plane to France, however, there will be no places in the squad for Andros Townsend, Danny Drinkwater, and the injured Fabian Delph.

Despite an injury hit campaign, Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere is in the 23-man final squad, while Leicester City title-winner Jamie Vardy is rewarded with a call-up, he will join Harry Kane, Wayne Rooney, Rashford and Sturridge as the Three Lions’ attacking options.

Kane’s Tottenham team-mates, Dele Alli, Eric Dier and Kyle Walker are also included, while Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton becomes the first Clarets player to represent his country at an international tournament. He is the third keeper behind Joe Hart and Fraser Forster.
