Talksport pundit takes to twitter to highlight England's poor goalscoring pedigree in major tournaments

England manager Roy Hodgson

England head into Euro 2016 arguably possessing their best squad at a major tournament over the last decade.

talkSPORT pundit Stan Collymore has taken to social media network Twitter to highlight the lack of a goal threat England have had at major tournaments in the past.

In the Three Lions previous 11 tournament games, they have failed to beat a team by more than one goal, and the former Aston Villa and Liverpool striker tweeted:

"In #ENG last 11 tournament games, we haven't beaten a team by more than 1 goal. We need creators/scorers big time ."

It does seem, however, that this time round could very well be different for England. Roy Hodgson has two of the hottest strikers on the planet available for selection in Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane and Leicester City's Jamie Vardy. The pair managed to score 49 Premier League goals between them, and are sure to play a part in England's Euro 2016 campaign.

Not only does Hodgson have a wealth of striking talent to choose from, but he also has an abundance of creative players available to pick from in midfield. Spurs' Dele Alli and Everton's Ross Barkley managed 17 assists between them in the league, whilst also scoring a combined 18 Premier League goals.

The personnel is certainly different this time around, but so too is the level of ability that runs throughout the squad, and there is every chance England can improve on their poor recent history in front of goal at a major tournament.

It is also worth noting that of the four players highlighted above, none of them play for a so-called super club. Tottenham, Everton and Leicester really could hold the key to whether or not England succeed in France this summer.
