Is this the Squad we will see at Euro 16 for England??

England squad

Goalkeepers: Jack Butland (Stoke City), Fraser Forster (Southampton), Joe Hart (Manchester City).

Defenders: Ryan Bertrand (Southampton), Gary Cahill (Chelsea), Nathaniel Clyne (Liverpool), Phil Jagielka (Everton), Danny Rose (Tottenham Hotspur), Chris Smalling (Manchester United), John Stones (Everton), Kyle Walker (Tottenham Hotspur).

Midfielders: Dele Alli (Tottenham Hotspur), Ross Barkley (Everton), Eric Dier (Tottenham Hotspur), Danny Drinkwater (Leicester City), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Adam Lallana (Liverpool), James Milner (Liverpool), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City).

Forwards: Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur), Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool), Jamie Vardy (Leicester City), Theo Walcott (Arsenal), Danny Welbeck (Arsenal).

Leicester midfielder Danny Drinkwater has been named in the England squad for the Euro 2016 warm-up games against Germany and the Netherlands.

It is the 26-year-old’s first call-up to the senior national team.

Roy Hodgson’s team travel to Berlin to face world champions Germany on Saturday, 26 March, then host the Dutch at Wembley on Tuesday, 29 March.

Tottenham full-back Danny Rose and Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge are also included in a 24-man squad.

But Wayne Rooney is left out as he recovers from a knee injury.

Clubs represented in England squad:

  • Tottenham and Liverpool: 5 players
  • Everton: 3
  • Man City, Leicester, Arsenal and Southampton: 2
  • Chelsea, Man Utd and Stoke: 1

Drinkwater, a former Manchester United youth team player, has been an influential figure in the stunning rise of Leicester, who top the Premier League table with eight games to go.

“What he’s done has been evident to everybody,” said Hodgson. “He’s had a fantastic season, but even last year we were aware of him.”

Drinkwater’s Premier League stats:

  • 1199 successful passes
  • 80 tackles
  • 46 interceptions
  • 4 assists
  • 1 goal

Hodgson added that the competition for a place in England’s midfield is “quite fierce” but said it was a good opportunity to see if Drinkwater “can reproduce the quality that he’s shown for Leicester”.

Hodgson says he “deliberately ignored” Arsenal’s Kieran Gibbs and Everton full-back Leighton Baines in favour of Rose and Ryan Bertrand.

Manchester United’s Michael Carrick, 34, was overlooked in favour of Drinkwater but Hodgson said he could still make the squad for the finals in France.

The Back of the Net see’s a few lucky boys in this squad: The likes of Henderson, Welbeck, Wallcott, Stirling and Jagielka are ones who we feel could be easily replaced after less than impressive club campaigns.

Henderson and Jagielka have spent much of this season injured and this is a big worry for Uncle Roy and the gang, maybe they should look to Marc Albrighton, Scott Dann as alternatives? Just a thought for Uncle Woy….
