England squad annoucement: Manchester United defender recalled, ex-Liverpool midfielder rewarded for excellent form

The England squad for the upcoming Euro 2016 qualifiers has been announced and there is a deserved call-up for ex-Liverpool midfielder Jonjo Shelvey.

Details of the squad was revealed via the Three Lions’ official Twitter account on Sunday night as manager Roy Hodgson has decided to reward the Swansea star for his excellent displays at the start of the new season.

Manchester United defender Luke Shaw, who has also begun the season in fine form, is named in the 22-man squad and he returns to the fold for the first time since November 2014.

The Three Lions head into their double-header against San Marino and Switzerland with an 100% record in their group and could confirm their place at next summer’s tournament in France with victory in both games.

Captain Wayne Rooney could also create history by becoming the national team’s all-time leading goalscorer as he is just one behind Sir Bobby Charlton’s record of 49 goals.
