Robbie Savage tells England to drop Delph, Henderson and Sterling

Savage believes the Liverpool and Manchester City stars should be cut by England.

Robbie Savage has told the Mirror that he would drop Fabian Delph, Jordan Henderson and Raheem Sterling from the current England squad.

Roy Hodgson named his 26-man provisional squad for Euro 2016 earlier this week, with few surprises in his selection.

The Three Lions boss must now assess that group in a series of upcoming friendlies, before naming his final 23-man squad at the end of May.

Who he elects to cut remains to be seen, with the selection likely to prove a tough one, and Savage has offered his opinion on who he feels should be left behind.

“It will be interesting to see which three of those players will miss the cut when he pares the squad down to 23 at the end of the month,” he told the Mirror.

“Hodgson may also have to decide between Raheem Sterling and Andros Townsend. If it was down to me, I would be leaving Delph, Henderson and Sterling at home.”

It will certainly be interesting to see who Hodgson cuts from the squad given the players he has selected.

Delph is certainly the man many are expecting to drop out considering his poor season with Manchester City, while Marcus Rashford also looks likely to miss the cut despite his impressive debut campaign.

Beyond that though it is hard to see who misses out and Hodgson certainly has a tough choice on his hands in deciding who he will take to France with him this summer.
