Hodgson names England Euro 2016 squad

England manager Roy Hodgson has announced his provisional squad for the Euro 2016 finals in France that needs to be finalised by May 31st.

The Three Lions were the only national team to go through the qualifying campaign without dropping a single point and they have big hopes for the tournament in France.

England will be facing the likes of Russia, Wales and Slovakia in Group B, and they can be backed at 1.83 (5/6) to win the first place in the group.

Manager Roy Hodgson has now unveiled his preliminary 26-man squad, meaning that another three footballers will be removed from the list ahead of the tournament finals.

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is included despite missing a large chunk of the season through injury, while Jordan Henderson has recovered from a knee problem.

Fellow Gunners Danny Welbeck and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had been earlier ruled out through injury, just like goalkeeper Jack Butland.

Premier League champions Jamie Vardy and Danny Drinkwater are both included, as is league top scorer Harry Kane, while Man Utd starlet Marcus Rashford also gets a chance to impress.

Provisional England Euro 2016 squad:

Goalkeepers: Joe Hart (Manchester City), Fraser Forster (Southampton), Tom Heaton (Burnley);
