Roy Hodgson has offcially announced his final 23-man squad for Euro 2016, with both Daniel Sturridge and Marcus Rashford among five forwards to get the chance to shine in France this summer.
Fabian Delph was ruled out with a groin injury earlier, and Leicester City’s Danny Drinkwater and Newcastle United’ Andros Townsend were the last cuts by the Three Lions manager.

Not surprisingly, a lot of fans voiced their opinion about England’s squad on Twitter:
Everyone loves to moan about the England squad but in fairness, I think Hodgson has got it spot on here. No complaints.

I was staggered when England didn’t take drinking water to Euro 2016. It goes against all medical advice – look, you have to stay hydrated.

Happy for Rashford even if he is a Manc. It’s exciting for England, Young Talent.

Looking at England squad maybe they should rename themselves to LIverpool Hotspur.

I think England squad is good. I wish he’d taken Townsend as there’s no natural winger. But he’d only have come on as a sub. Generally good.

Absolutely crazy that Marcus Rashford has made it into England’s 23-man squad for the Euros. What a season he’s had. Good luck to him.

How exactly does Barkley fit into the #England team? 4th choice No.10 in the diamond & can’t play out wide in 4-3-3. Townsend is on fire.

Hodgson are you drunk ? Picking Whilshere over Drinkwater who not in same league and bringing Sturridge in who’s not played much #england

I’m going to enjoy this Euro tournament. England to definitely suffer. Just stacking players with no real quality.

Call me a pessimist, but I reckon I’m going to have to be absolutely out of my skull to even vaguely enjoy England’s games.

Roy Hodgson is so bloody clueless about his job as the England manager. Henderson? Seriously?

Good #England squad. Think they’ll surprise a few people this year. ⚽️

Once again we pick players because they play for the “bigger clubs” how drinkwater hasn’t gone is ridiculous #england

England were 100% in qualifying, of course Roy wants to keep that unit together, and particularly not make changes in the midfield.

In my eyes, every player should have to earn an England cap, they shouldn’t be given out because you play for a big club.

Love the England squad, Kane and Vardy up top, Rooney in behind, and Rashford to come on to get a guaranteed goal in every game ⚽️

Can’t help but think England are handicapping themselves in the Euros by not drinking water during the tournament
