24 year-old Newcastle winger Andros Townsend has been named by manager Roy Hodgson in the 26 man England squad for the friendlies leading up to the Euro 2016 Championships in France next month – and this squad will then be reduced to a 23 man squad for the actual Championships.

Andros has seen a big uptick in both his form, visibility and the publicity he has received since joining Newcastle United from Tottenham in January.

Townsend has been one of Newcastle’s best players this year with four goals and two assists for the team.

Here’s the 26 man squad just announced by Hodgson.
