Phil Neville has urged the three England players who were omitted from England’s squad for Euro 2016 to come back stronger.

Newcastle United’s Andros Townsend, Leicester City’s Danny Drinkwater and Manchester City’s Fabian Delph were left out of Roy Hodgson’s squad for the international tournament in France.

Townsend, Drinkwater and Delph had all been included in Hodgson’s provisional England team for Euro 2016, but they did not do enough to impress Hodgson in the Three Lions’ two most recent friendly matches.

The omission of Drinkwater has proved to be particularly controversial, but Neville wants to trio to react positively to being cut out of the squad and use it as motivation.

Gary Lineker also had his say after the England squad was announced, and he suggested that Drinkwater could feel hard done by to be left out.

Drinkwater had played a key part for Leicester as they won the Premier League title this past season.

Townsend was in impressive form for Newcastle after his move in January, while Delph played a rotational role for City.

England’s last friendly before Euro 2016 comes against Portugal on Thursday.
