Roy Hodgson named his latest England squad for the upcoming friendlies against Germany and Holland, with there being few surprises.
Leicester City’s Danny Drinkwater was a deserved choice, although many have criticised him for his failure to name West Ham United duo Aaron Cresswell and Mark Noble given their form.
In the goalkeeper department he opted for Manchester City’s Joe Hart, Stoke City’s Jack Butland and Southampton’s Fraser Forster.
He went with eight defenders, with Liverpool’s Nathaniel Clyne and Tottenham’s Kyle Walker at right back, Danny Rose and Ryan Bertrand from Saints and Spurs respectively at left back as Everton’s Leighton Baines misses out.
Everton stars John Stones and Phil Jagielka are in though, while Manchester United’s Chris Smalling and Chelsea’s Gary Cahill also make the cut.
Liverpool stars dominate the midfield as Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Adam Lallana are chosen alongside Tottenham starlets Dele Alli and Eric Dier, as well as Everton’s Ross Barkley.
Manchester United’s Michael Carrick is also a pick; with Raheem Sterling from Manchester City is an unsurprising choice.
Up front it is Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy, Daniel Sturridge and captain Wayne Rooney as he elects to go with just four strikers.
