Twitter reacts to England squad announcement: Spurs & Liverpool fans brick it, Leicester lovers wet for Drinkwater

Posted by

Danny Drinkwater has been given his first senior international call-up after being included in Roy Hodgson’s England squad for the upcoming friendly games against Germany and Holland.

The other headlines from the squad announcement are that injury-prone Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge returns, while Tottenham Hotspur are represented by five players.

Kyle Walker, Danny Rose, Eric Dier, Dele Alli and Harry Kane are all likely to play too, which has worried some Spurs fans who are paranoid about possible fitness problems derailing the White Hart Lane club’s title bid.

Liverpool fans are too concerned about Sturridge’s inclusion because of his fragile body.

However, Leicester fans are delighted to see Drinkwater be recognised by his country, although the rest of the nation are not fully convinced.

The squad in full and the best of the Twitter reaction can be seen below…
