Roy Hodgson's 23 Man England Squad

Roy Hodgson has named his 23 man squad for Euro 2016 with Marcus Rashford in alongside Daniel Sturridge while Danny Drinkwater and Andros Townsend miss out along with the injured Fabian Delph.
Rashford impressed on his international debut last Friday, scoring against Australia after just 138 seconds, while Sturridge has done enough to prove his fitness.  Premier League winner Drinkwater, Newcastle's Townsend and Manchester City midfielder Delph miss out as the squad was cut from 26 to 23.
Hodgson's decision means England will have three goalkeepers, seven defenders, eight midfielders and five forwards in France - a group including teenage sensation Rashford. Just three months after making his first appearance for United, the 18-year-old has won the FA Cup, signed a new contract and earned a place at Euro 2016. Rashford impressed the England coaching staff by following up impressive training displays with a dream international debut, netting 138 seconds into the 2-1 win against Australia on Friday.

That display ratcheted up the pressure on Sturridge, but he too got the nod despite being the only member of the squad not to appear in either of the preparation matches. The 26years old was absent for the victory against Turkey due to the Europa League final and was ruled out of the Socceroos clash with a calf strain.
England welcome Portugal to Wembley on Thursday in their final preparation match before Euro 2016. Hodgson's men begin Group B against Russia on June 11 in Marseille, before taking on Wales in Lens on June 16 and travelling to St Etienne on June 20 to face Slovakia.
