Frustrated Trevor Sinclair reacts on Twitter as England squad includes no West Ham players

England's preliminary squad for the European Championships contains no West Ham players.

BBC pundit Trevor Sinclair has taken to Twitter to question just why not one West Ham player was named in the England squad for Euro 2016.

England boss Roy Hodgson named his preliminary 26-man squad for this summer's European Championships in France, with some surprises in the squad.

Newcastle winger Andros Townsend earned a recall to the squad, Arsenal's Jack Wilshere was handed a place despite starting just once in the last year, and Manchester United's teenage striker Marcus Rashford earned a shock call-up.

One of the notable storylines coming out of the squad announcement was that there are no West Ham players named in the side despite their fine season.

Fans are understandably frustrated, as left back Aaron Cresswell, midfielder Mark Noble, winger Michail Antonio and centre forward Andy Carroll all impressed, and staked their claim for spot - only to be rejected on Monday afternoon when Hodgson announced his squad.

After the squad was announced, BBC pundit and ex-England international Trevor Sinclair took to Twitter, questioning just why not West Ham players were picked.

The former West Ham star was clearly frustrated, and suggested that England need to start picking form over reputation if they are to succeed.
