    When he's fit Wilshere's great, he was probably our best players in the qualifiers up to June last year.

    Yeah if it was up to me it would be Henderson who misses out along with Delph but I guess we'll see.

    Silly mistake by Joe Hart, no need to come out that far.

    Yeah I don't know what he was thinking there. Uncharacteristic of him. Look good in attack but rocky in defence which I think is going to be the story of the summer.

    Bit of a scrappy game but a great result in the end. Vardy should have taken the penalty he won.

    Important to remember Turkey hadn't lost in 18 months and the likes of Rooney, Sturridge, Smalling, Rashford and Clyne weren't even available for Roy.

    Always great to start the friendlies off with a win, not the best performance by England if Turkey had a Finisher in there side we could of had problems.
    Nice to see John Stones show some early potential on what he can do confidence running with the ball out of defense.

    Fabian Delph will miss tomorrow's friendly against Australia and Roy Hodgson has confirmed the Man City midfielder will be on standby for Euro 2016.

    Two more to go then. No surprise here tbh.

    injury or not, I'm sure he was always getting cut.

    After seeing him in the cup final last weekend, I've warmed up to the idea of Rashford going, especially as Roy will probably have Rooney as a midfielder. Let's see how he gets on in the friendly first.

    Sturridge has missed a couple of training sessions too (shocking, I know), I'd say Rashford's chances are starting to look good.


    I'm off to London again, this time on two wheels. See here for more & to donate see below.

    Hopefully we shall see Rashford get at least a decent run out tomorrow he has earned the chance to impress for England.

    If he is successful I don't see why he dosent deserve to go what a fantastic sub to have.

    England's team for tonight's friendly against Australia. Rashford starts, Sturridge not even in the squad.

    Forster

    Clyne
    Smalling
    Stones
    Bertrand

    Henderson
    Drinkwater
    Wilshere

    Sterling
    Lallana
    Rashford

    Sturridge doesn't make the squad and isn't even on the bench.

    Rashers after 2 minutes, incredible. Mikk would still rather take Defoe!

    Re: Pre Euro 2016 Friendlies Discussion Thread

    When the provisional squad was announced the three players I wouldn't take are: Delph, Townsend and Rashford. Noble, Defoe and Jagielka should have been selected. Probably wouldn't have taken Jagielka for the final 23 but expected him to at least make the provisional list. Walcott had a poor season so I don't mind him missing out. Wilshere was a surprise choice but when he's fit, he's great.

    Now that England have played two friendlies and Roy is about to announce his final squad, Rashford should get a chance. He became the youngest England goalscorer last night and he could be an impact sub for us. As for club level, it will be interesting to see if Jose gives him a chance at Man Utd.

    The three players to miss out on the England squad: Delph is injured so this leaves two more spots. If Sturridge is fit to play then I think Townsend and Drinkwater will be dropped. Hope Drinkwater doesn't get cut. He was an integral part of a league winning team.
