Jack Wilshere has been named by Roy Hodgson in England’s provisional squad for Euro 2016.

The Arsenal midfielder, who started in his side’s 4-0 victory over Aston Villa on Sunday, is the only Gunner named in the squad after Theo Walcott was left out.

Wilshere, from Hitchin, is one of 26 players announced by Hodgson, though this will be reduced to 23 ahead of the tournament.

After being named in the squad, the 24-year-old tweeted: “Absolutely buzzing! I can’t wait to meet up with the squad and start preparing for the euros. Thanks for all the messages. #England.”

Squad: Forster, Hart, Heaton, Bertrand, Cahill, Clyne, Rose, Smalling, Stones, Walker, Alli, Barkley, Delph, Dier, Drinkwater, Henderson, Lallana, Milner, Sterling, Townsend, Wilshere, Kane, Rashford, Rooney, Sturridge, Vardy.
