Rashford, Sturridge make England’s squad

Marcus Rashford and Daniel Sturridge have both been included in England’s final squad for Euro 2016.
Leicester City midfielder Danny Drinkwater, Newcastle United winger Andros Townsend and Manchester City’s Fabian Delph – who is injured – have all been omitted by Roy Hodgson having been named in his initial 26-man party.
Rashford was a surprise inclusion in Hodgson’s provisional squad, with the 18-year-old earning a spot thanks to a superb breakthrough campaign with Manchester United, but impressed by scoring just three minutes into his full international debut against Australia last Friday and has made the cut.
Concerns had been raised over the fitness of Liverpool striker Sturridge, who missed last Friday’s friendly win over Australia with a calf issue, but he has also been included.
Drinkwater misses out despite helping to inspire Leicester to a remarkable Premier League title win, while Townsend is omitted despite strong form for Newcastle at the end of the campaign.
