Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has been included in a 26-man England squad ahead of Euro 2016, Roy Hodgson has announced.

Manchester United teenager Marcus Rashford has been included in Roy Hodgson's 26-man squad for England's Euro 2016 preparation matches.

Hodgson has named a provisional party that includes 18-year-old Rashford, less than three months after he made his first-team debut for United.

The uncapped striker's impressive form has seen him fast-tracked into a group of forwards along with Harry Kane, Wayne Rooney, Daniel Sturridge and Jamie Vardy, as Jermain Defoe and Andy Carroll miss out.

Andros Townsend, who won the last of his 10 caps in October, comes in following Danny Welbeck's knee injury, but there is no place for Theo Walcott.

Leicester's Danny Drinkwater, who impressed on his debut against Holland in March, is included in the squad, as are Jack Wilshere and Jordan Henderson as the pair make their way back from injury.

Phil Jagielka is the high-profile defensive absentee, with the Everton defender left out as Hodgson opted for a seven-man defence.
