Double Euro 16 heartache for Newcastle United stars as Townsend and Dummett axed
Andros Townsend has been axed by Roy Hodgson after the England manager named his 23-man Euro 16 squad.
The in-form Newcastle United winger has missed out on a spot on the plane despite his late call-up to the squad.
The 24-year-old had impressed in the Magpies’ unsuccessful battle against relegation after his £12million move from Tottenham Hotspur in January.
But it hasn’t been enough to earn him a place in the final squad, with Hodgson also dropping Leicester City’s Danny Drinkwater.
Former Sunderland star Jordan Henderson is included in the squad, however.
Full squad: Hart, Forster, Heaton, Walker, Clyne, Rose, Bertrand, Cahill, Smalling, Stones, Dier, Wilshere, Barkley, Alli, Henderson, Milner, Sterling, Lallana, Kane, Rooney, Vardy, Sturridge, Rashford.
And in a further blow to Newcastle, defender Paul Dummett missed out on a Wales call-up after he was cut from Chris Coleman’s final squad.
