Harry Kane earned his first international call-up, while Andros Townsend, Theo Walcott and Luke Shaw were among the questionable inclusions.

With the squad confirmed, we take a look at seven English stars who were unlucky not to have been given the nod by the Three Lions boss…

Charlie Austin – Queens Park Rangers

In predictable fashion, QPR have flopped tremendously in the Premier League since their promotion to the top-flight, with their away form laughable.

The Hoops’ striker, however, has been in superb form, scoring 15 times in 26 league appearances – perhaps the poor reputation of his club has let him down in earning an international call-up.

Danny Ings – Burnley

With nine goals in his first season in the top-flight, and at 22-years-old, Ings could be one to look out for in the future England set-up, but the fixtures this month have perhaps come too soon for the Burnley hit-man to be called upon.
