Andros Townsend became the first Newcastle player for a while to be called up by England – and he will get his chance to make the final 23 man squad for the Euro 2016 Tournament in France next month.
Andros was named in the 26 man squad announced by England manager Roy Hodgson earlier today to play three friendlies before the squad is cut to 23 players.
