Roy Hodgson announced his provisional 26-man Euro 2016 squad on Monday morning, with some surprise selections included.

The 68-year-old will have until May 31 to announce his final squad, and so he will likely take the opportunity to assess his group in the coming weeks with the domestic season still yet to conclude.

Naturally, there was disappointment for certain individuals missing out, with Arsenal star Theo Walcott among the first to take to Twitter to reveal that he had spoken to Hodgson and wished the England squad the best of luck this summer.

While three players will drop out before May 31, Jack Wilshere was delighted to be included as he continues his comeback from injury, while Andros Townsend’s form with Newcastle United in recent weeks earns him a call up.

Manchester United youngster Marcus Rashford has also earned a call, but it remains unlikely that the teenager will travel to France, while fresh from his Premier League title triumph this season, Danny Drinkwater was naturally delighted to be included too.

However, there were some questionable inclusions, with supporters taking to Twitter to share their thoughts:
