Peter Crouch reacts on Twitter to England’s Euro 2016 squad

Three Lions close

The England squad for Euro 2016 was announced on Monday.

Stoke City striker Peter Crouch has reacted on Twitter to England’s squad for Euro 2016, by joking that he should have been in there.

England manager Roy Hodgson named his provision 26-man squad for the tournament on Monday.

There were few surprises in his choice, as he largely stuck by the players that had helped the Three Lions qualify for France.

He did have some shocks up his sleeve though, as Andros Townsend and Marcus Rashford both got into the squad.

It has generally been agreed that the squad is a good one, and Crouch agreed on Twitter, although he did jokingly point out one flaw.

With Hodgson needing to cut this current squad of 26 down to 23 by 30th May, it will be interesting to see who he leaves out.

Rashford is likely to drop out following the two upcoming friendlies before that deadline, while it would be surprising to see Manchester City midfielder Fabian Delph keep his place.

After that though, it is hard to see who he will leave out and perhaps it will simply end up being a choice based on fitness rather than quality.
