Theo Walcott

These two Arsenal stars will miss out in England’s team for the Euro’s, while Rashford in, Rooney out?

Every England fan across the country has their opinion on who Roy Hodgson should be taking to the Euro’s this summer but it looks like heartbreak for 2 Arsenal players who haven’t done enough this season to warrant places. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott Look set to miss out on their plane tickets to France courtesy of the FA after failing to find form.

They have both struggled for form this year with few goals and assists between them, but both have been known to provide a little extra spark when needed. Sources inside the England camp have revealed that Hodgson wants to pick players on form rather than reputation which has been an issue amongst England managers of the past.

Another player that looks set to miss out is 300,000 pounds-per-week Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney, who had a poor start to the season before getting injured. He has not been a prolific goal scorer for some timer and it appears that 18 year old Marcus Rashford might even be in front of him in the England pecking order.

The situation might yet change if injuries become a problem and any late call-up will surely mean the player is motivated to prove he should have been there in the first place.

Perhaps with the striker situation now looking promising, England does have a chance to make the finals. Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy have been scoring freely all year which bodes well for the 3 Lions.
