Nottingham Forest striker Britt Assombalonga suggests two former teammates who should've made England's squad

Nottingham Forest 2

Nottingham Forest striker Britt Assombalonga says West Ham United's Michail Antonio and Watford's Troy Deeney should have been in England's squad.

Nottingham Forest striker Britt Assombalonga has suggested that two of his former teammates, Troy Deeney and Michail Antonio, should have made it into England’s Euro 2016 squad on social media site Twitter.

Assombalonga linked up with Deeney as a youngster, during his time at Watford, while he played alongside Antonio at Forest last season.

And the Reds striker says he felt that the pair had done enough to merit places in Roy Hodgson’s England squad.

Deeney has had a great campaign for Watford in the Premier League, and he has captained them to safety.

The powerful forward has scored 15 goals this term, but he was never likely to be included in Roy Hodgon’s team, given the wealth of striking options that the Three Lions have.

Antonio’s case may have been a stronger one, given the fine debut season he has had at West Ham.

The winger made a slow start for the Hammers, but he has gone on to become a key part of Slaven Bilic’s side’s first-team.

Antonio has netted eight goals in 26 Premier League appearances for West Ham, despite playing at right-back for parts of the season.
