Rashford, Townsend in provisional England squad
MANCHESTER United's teenage sensation Marcus Rashford and Newcastle United winger Andros Townsend were named in a provisional 26-man England squad for Euro 2016 yesterday.
The uncapped Rashford, 18, burst onto the scene this season, scoring seven goals in 16 games.
Townsend, who made his last England appearance in October, has impressed since joining Newcastle from Tottenham Hotspur in January.
Arsenal's Jack Wilshere and Liverpool's Jordan Henderson were both included after recent spells on the sidelines.
However, there is no place for Wilshere's club-mate Theo Walcott.
Manager Roy Hodgson must reduce his squad to 23 for the tournament in France, which sees England paired with Slovakia, Russia and Wales in Group B.
