The Three Lions boss this morning (Monday, May 16) named Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Harry Kane, Danny Rose and Kyle Walker in a 26-man group for the upcoming friendlies against Turkey (May 22) and Australia (May 27), with the squad then set to be trimmed to 23 in advance of the last warm-up friendly against Portugal on June 2 and the subsequent tournament finals in France.

England will face Russia in their Group B opener on June 11, then meet Wales on June 16 before taking on Slovakia on June 20 at the showpiece competition.

Midfielder Dele made his senior international debut in October, 2015, and so far has six caps and one goal to his name.

Eric’s bow came a month later and he’s so far made four senior appearances, also scoring once.

Harry memorably exploded onto the England scene in March, 2015, with a goal 79 seconds into his debut against Lithuania and has now racked up four goals in his 10 senior appearances to date.

Both of Danny’s caps came as recently as March, 2016, while fellow full-back Kyle has played 14 times since his debut in March, 2011.
