Robbie Savage has taken social networking site Twitter to blast England manager Roy Hodgson for dropping Leicester City star Danny Drinkwater from his squad for Euro 2016.

Hodgson named his final England squad for Euro 2016 on Tuesday, cutting three names from the original 26-man squad he had previously selected.

Those men proved to be Newcastle United’s Andros Townsend, Manchester City’s Fabian Delph and Leicester City star Danny Drinkwater.

The decision to drop Drinkwater has been the most surprising given the fine season he enjoyed as the Foxes secured the most unlikely of Premier League titles.

And Savage is one who was not impressed by the decision, labelling it as a disgrace in his reaction on Twitter.

He was not the only one to react, with former stars Trevor Sinclair and Ian Wright also reacting negatively to the decision.

Hodgson will now be hoping that the decision to leave Drinkwater at home does not come back to haunt him.

He has taken a risk in selecting an unfit Jack Wilshere, while there are also doubts about Liverpool duo Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Henderson.

Should any of that trio end up picking up another injury and missing the tournament, there is no doubt many will bring up the decision to drop Drinkwater in future.
