Wayne Rooney, Manchester United Captain
England Squad Named for International Friendlies & Euro 2016
Twenty-six year old Danny Drinkwater and Tottenham Hotspur’s Danny Rose are the only uncapped football players in England manager Roy Hodgson's final side before Hodson selects his squad for this summer's 2016 European Championship.
Leicester City star midfielder Drinkwater is part of the 24-man England side that will travel to Germany for a friendly in Berlin, before hosting Holland in a not-to-be-missed tie at Wembley Stadium in London, UK.
Drinkwater has not featured for England since the under-19 level.
After injuries to Manchester City due Joe Hart and Raheem Sterling, England boss Roy Hodgson is reportedly considering recalling Man United attacker Jesse Lingard for the glamour friendlies against Germany and Holland.
Three Lions manager Roy Hodgson has named a 24-man squad for the seniors' friendlies against Germany and the Netherlands.
England travel to face Germany in Berlin on Saturday 26 March 26 at the Olympiastadion starting at 7.45pm GMT.
Captain Wayne Rooney is out recovering from injury. Daniel Sturridge, Danny Welbeck, Jordan Henderson and Fraser Forster return to the squad after injury.
Hodgson's men next face the Netherlands at Wembley Stadium in London on Tuesday 29 March, kick-off at 8pm GMT.
The match is key to Roy Hodgson’s side’s preparations for Euro 2016 next summer after matches against fellow European giants Spain, France and Germany.
England v Holland will be the 20th meeting between the Three Lions and the Orange, with the last being at Wembley Stadium in February 2012. At that fixture, Arjen Robben’s injury time winner completed a 3-2 victory for the Dutch.
England’s record against the Netherlands stands at five wins, nine draws and five defeats.
Germany v England Final Squad Selection
Jack Butland will start against Germany as goalie with Joe Hart missing through injury; Gary Cahill will captain the side with Wayne Rooney still out.
England team: Jack Butland (Stoke City), Nathaniel Clyne (Liverpool), Chris Smalling (Manchester United), Gary Cahill (Chelsea), Danny Rose (Tottenham Hotspur), Eric Dier (Tottenham Hotspur), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Dele Alli (Tottenham Hotspur), Adam Lallana (Liverpool), Danny Welbeck (Arsenal), Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur).
