Stuart Pearce names his England squad for Euro 2016

Stars from Everton, Liverpool, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and several other Premier League clubs all make it in.

Former England defender Stuart Pearce has named his England squad for Euro 2016, via Sky Sports.

Excitement is starting to build ahead of the tournament in France as the Premier League season draws to a close.

Manager Roy Hodgson will name his preliminary squad on Thursday, before trimming that squad down for the tournament.

Many have already named what would be their ideal selection, and now Pearce has thrown his into the ring, via Sky Sports.

In goal he of course has Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart, while Fraser Forster from Southampton and Tom Heaton from Burnley are the backups.

In defence it is two from Tottenham, Kyle Walker and Danny Rose, and three from Everton, John Stones, Phil Jagielka and Leighton Baines all making it in.

Liverpool full back Nathaniel Clyne, Chris Smalling of Manchester United and Gary Cahill from Chelsea are the other defensive options.

In midfield Eric Dier is selected alongside Tottenham teammate Dele Alli, while Liverpool trio Jordan Henderson Adam Lallana and James Milner are chosen.

Ross Barkley also makes the cut, as well as Manchester based duo Michael Carrick and Raheem Sterling. The surprising omission is Jack Wilshere, who many are expecting to be a part of Roy Hodgson’s selection.

Up front there are no surprises as Pearce elects to go with Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy, captain Wayne Rooney and Daniel Sturridge for his striker options.
