Tottenham Hotspur's Scott Parker and Jermain Defoe selected by Roy Hodgson for England at Euro 2012
1:32pm Wednesday 16th May 2012 in Local Sport
Spurs duo Scott Parker and Jermain Defoe have both been included in the England squad for Euro 2012.
Roy Hodgson named his 23-man squad for this summer’s tournament this afternoon with the White Hart Lane pair both included.
Parker has made the cut despite concerns over an Achilles injury towards the end of the campaign.
He missed Spurs’ last four matches but captained England in their last match against Holland.
Missing out however, are fellow Tottenham team-mates Kyle Walker and Aaron Lennon.
Walker picked up an ankle injury in the club’s final game of the season against Fulham, while Lennon has been overlooked in midfield.
England face friendlies against Norway and Belgium in the coming weeks before they begin their campaign against France in Donetsk on June 11.
England’s Euro 2012 squad: Goalkeepers: Robert Green (West Ham United), Joe Hart (Manchester City), John Ruddy (Norwich City).
Defenders: Leighton Baines (Everton), Gary Cahill (Chelsea), Ashley Cole (Chelsea), Glen Johnson (Liverpool), Phil Jones (Manchester United), Joleon Lescott (Manchester City), John Terry (Chelsea).
Midfielders: Gareth Barry (Manchester City), Stewart Downing (Liverpool), Steven Gerrard (Liverpool), Frank Lampard (Chelsea), James Milner (Manchester City), Scott Parker (Tottenham Hotspur), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Arsenal), Theo Walcott (Arsenal), Ashley Young (Manchester United).
Forwards: Andy Carroll (Liverpool), Wayne Rooney (Manchester United), Danny Welbeck (Manchester United), Jermain Defoe (Tottenham Hotspur).
