Andros Townsend has wished England all the best in Euro 16 after he was axed from the squad.

The Newcastle United winger missed out on a place in the final 23-man party after Roy Hodgson decided against taking him and Leicester’s Danny Drinkwater.

Townsend – who has been in great form since his £12million move to Tyneside from Spurs – was disappointed to have missed out on potentially playing in the tournament, but took to Twitter to say he hoped England could bring the trophy home from France.

He tweeted: “Obviously gutted to fall at the final hurdle but wishing the boys all the best of luck at Euro 2016 #ComeOnEngland”
