Alan Shearer names his England squad for Euro 2016

Stars from Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Liverpool and Everton all make the cut.

Alan Shearer has named his England squad for Euro 2016 to Coral following the latest round of international friendlies.

The Three Lions took on Germany and the Netherlands in two prestige friendlies, beating their archrivals 3-2 in Berlin before suffering a 2-1 loss to the Dutch at Wembley.

There were several impressive performances though, with the likes of Danny Drinkwater, Harry Kane and Dele Alli all staking serious claims for places in the squad for this summer’s tournament.

And Shearer has now named the squad he would take to France if he were England manager, for Coral.

In the goalkeeper department he opted for Manchester City’s Joe Hart, with Southampton’s Fraser Forster and Burnley’s Tom Heaton as back ups.

He goes with seven defenders, with Liverpool’s Nathaniel Clyne and Tottenham Hotspur’s Kyle Walker at right-back and Ryan Bertrand and Spurs’ Danny Rose at left-back.

Central defence sees Everton’s John Stones make the cut despite recent criticism, as well as Manchester United’s Chris Smalling and Chelsea’s Gary Cahill.

Midfield sees eight selected, with Liverpool pair Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana in as well as Everton’s Ross Barkley.

Dele Alli and Eric Dier from Tottenham make the cut, as well as Leicester City’s Drinkwater. Raheem Sterling is also in, while Theo Walcott is handed a place despite his poor season.

Up front Shearer opts for five as he elects to take Daniel Sturridge and Arsenal’s Danny Welbeck, as well as Harry Kane, Wayne Rooney and this season’s surprise star Jamie Vardy.
