England: Final Squad For Euro 2016 Announced – Fabian Delph, Danny Drinkwater & Andros Townsend All Miss Out

31st, May 2016



With the deadline set to pass tonight, England have announced their final squad for Euro 2016.

While all the pre-announcement hoo-ha was whether or not Marcus Rashford would bump Daniel Sturridge out of the reckoning, it has transpired that both strikers will be making the trip.

Alas, the three men cut from Roy Hodgson’s final 23-man selection are Fabian Delph, Danny Drinkwater and Andros Townsend – which is probably harshest on the Leicester man, but alas somebody had to make way in that cluttered midfield.

Hence, we have Jack Wilshere – one Premier League start over the course of the entire 2015/16 season – in there at a title winner’s expense.

Fancy our chances (of making out of the groups) with that squad, England fans?

    As a gooner, I cannot see any reason Wilshire gets in before drinkwater …

    We’ve took one recognised winger to an international tournament. That’s probably the position we have the most talent in other than up front.

  3. James Taylor says:

    Lallana, Henderson, Barkley, Wilshere, Sterling and Milner have all endured mediocre seasons, and have certainly done nothing to warrant inclusion ahead of Drinkwater. And it’s not like they’ve been impressive/reliable performers for England in the past. The mind boggles…

    It’s like people don’t understand Wilshere has innate talent.

  5. Bruno says:

    Wilshere should play, I don’t think he’s great plus missed the whole season but he’s still better than the others. Sturridge is not as good as Rooney, Kane or Vardy so he would be my last attacker but with Rashford flying I would leave Sturridge out for Rashford and also keep Drinkwater. The midfiled is weaker than the defence in my opinion. I think Smalling and Cahill are OK, Stones is not totally ready yet but can do a good job. But Henderson, Lallana, Dier… I don’t know, they are all average players. Michael Carrick is still the best natural english midfielder and should be not only in the squad but also starting every game.

    My line up:


    Walker / Smalling / Cahil / Rose
    Alli / Carrick / Wilshere
    Kane / Vardy


    Stones / Bertrand
    Drinkwater / Barkley / Sturridge

    Sorry, I mean STERLING on the bench, not Sturridge.

  7. Jarren says:

    On his day, Sturridge is the most technically gifted striker England have.

    He can produce moments of absolute magic at the flick of a switch.

    If he’s not injured, of course. It’s a risk taking him, but I can see why Roy did.

    I can also see why Rashford was picked. For a kid, he has shown literally zero nerves on the big stage.

    I think he’ll relish this summer.
