Five England outsiders that could make Euro 2016 squad

Ahead of next summer's Euro 2016 in France, bring you five Premier League stars that could potentially break their way into Roy Hodgson's squad.

With the Premier League season now in full flow, English top-flight stars will not only be focusing on helping their clubs enjoy a successful campaign, but will have thoughts of Euro 2016 on their minds.

Many are already assured of their place at France next summer in Roy Hodgson’s Three Lions squad, who are a best-priced 12/1 with 888Sport to incredibly be crowned champions, but there others that could potentially snatch their position on the plane next summer. bring you five of those players that should have forced their way into Hodgson’s thinking thanks to great club form!

Jack Grealish
Aston Villa’s promising forward turned down the advances of the Republic of Ireland earlier this year and recently declared his allegiance to England at senior international level, despite having feature for the Boys In Green since Under-17 level.

Grealish’s father is from Dublin and had a part in the Villa starlet’s development within the Irish set-up, but now the 20-year-old has stated his desire to be a part of the Three Lions squad, something which could happen sooner rather than later.

Aaron Cresswell
West Ham United have been one of the surprise packages so far this term, impressively climbing to third-place in the Premier League table at this early stage, thanks to superb performances from the likes of Aaron Cresswell.

The 25-year-old Tranmere Rovers academy product has been outstanding once again down the left flank for the Hammers, providing great composure at full back and delivering dangerous crosses towards Slaven Bilic’s frontmen. A call-up is only a matter of time, with Manchester United’s Luke Shaw likely to miss Euro 2016 due to a horrific injury sustained in the Champions League.

Eric Dier
Having started his Tottenham career in the heart of the backline, Dier’s performances in a holding midfield role have seen him become one of the most in-form central starlets in this challenging division.

Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs have benefited massively from the dominant showings in midfield at White Hart Lane, with an England place surely beckoning for this driven 21-year-old.

With Hodgson possibly still unsure of what route to take with his midfield in France, Dier’s composed nature would provide a stable guard which could give the likes of Fabian Delph, Jack Wilshere and Ross Barkley freedom to burst forward.

Joe Gomez
Strong, quick and versatile! Liverpool’s summer recruit has showcased all of his astute attributes this season since arriving from Charlton Athletic.

The international stage would be nothing new for the 18-year-old, having already represented his country at four age levels, from the Under-15s up to the Under-21s more recently.

Jamie Vardy
Leicester City’s rapid forward Vardy has already featured for the Three Lions this year, after his amazing club outings convinced Hodgson to give him a chance.

The Foxes frontman could once again be involved for England in their upcoming qualifying clash with Estonia at Wembley, having already secured their position in France, and they are 13/5 with bet365 to win by four or more goals on home soil.

All odds were correct at time of posting.
