    England Euro 2016 squad announcement

    By Carl Halsall

    England have announced their provisional squad of 26 players for Euro 2016 this morning, which includes a number of players who have never been to a major tournament with England before.

    The full provisional squad of 26 players is as follows;

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

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

    Midfielders: Dele Alli (Tottenham), Ross Barkley (Everton), Fabian Delph (Manchester City), Eric Dier (Tottenham), Danny Drinkwater (Leicester City), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Adam Lallana (Liverpool), James Milner (Liverpool), Andros Townsend (Newcastle United), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City), Jack Wilshere (Arsenal)

    Forwards: Harry Kane (Tottenham), Marcus Rashford (Manchester United), Wayne Rooney (Manchester United), Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool), Jamie Vardy (Leicester City).

    England will play three friendly matches prior to Euro 2016, which includes; a match against Turkey on 22 May at Manchester City's Etihad Stadium, then against Australia on 27 May at Sunderland's Stadium of Light, and finishing off against Portugal on 2 June at Wembley Stadium.

    England will arrive at their base for the tournament in France on 6 June, and manager Roy Hodgson must take three players out of the squad to make it a squad of 23, before the deadline of 31 May.

    It is unlikely that players from Liverpool or Manchester United will be involved against Turkey on 22 May due to Liverpool's participation in the Europa League final on 18 May, and Manchester United playing the FA Cup final on 21 May.  

    In France, England are in Group B, and take on Russia first on 11 June, Wales on 16 June, and their final group match against Slovakia on 20 June.
