Speaking to talkSPORT, Ray Wilkins has said that Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge should not go to Euro 2016 with England if he is not in the right frame of mind.

England manager Roy Hodgson is set to name his final 23-man squad for Euro 2016 today as preparations gear up for the tournament. He must cut three men from his 26-man provisional squad, but at present it is hard to see who those will be.

Striker Sturridge is one of those who may be in danger, having picked up an injury last week and there being serious doubts about his long-term fitness.

Wilkins though, believes that the Three Lions should question his willingness to potentially sit on the bench and play a bit part role before taking him.

“You need a group of guys who are really going to gel together,” he told talkSPORT.

“Whether you’re selected or not, you have to be ready to come on and play and if Daniel is not in the right frame of mind to do that then he shouldn’t go.”

The problem for Sturridge is that England can afford to leave him behind given the attacking options they currently have at their disposal.

Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy led the goalscoring charts last season, while Wayne Rooney has looked sharp in the two warm up games recently.

There is also Manchester United youngster Marcus Rashford to consider, with his debut goal against Australia, and general superb season, arguably putting him ahead of the Liverpool man at present too.
