England’s Euro 2016 squad and where they are now including Wilshere & Sturridge


ENGLAND’s EURO 2016 campaign was one to forget.

And that is exactly what has happened to some of the players included in Roy Hodgson’s 23-man squad for the tournament in France.

How England lined up for the first Euro 2016 game vs Russia

The Three Lions limped out the group stage – finishing second to Wales after beating their neighbours 2-1 but only managing 1-1 and 0-0 draws against Russia and Slovakia respectively.

And then embarassingly losing 2-1 to European minnows Iceland in the last-16 put the icing on the cake.

Hodgson swiftly resigned and here SunSport looks at what has happened to the squad since.

GK: JOE HART

One of the biggest falls from grace since England’s disappointing showing in France.

Manchester City goalkeeper at the time but after mistakes against Wales and Iceland he returned to the Etihad to be swiftly axed by new manager Pep Guardiola.

Has since flopped for West Ham and Burnley in England since after a loan season with Serie A side Torino.

GK: TOM HEATON

Heaton was impressing at Burnley in the lead up to the tournament and was expected to be a fairly regular inclusion for England for years to come.

He continued to feature regularly at Turf Moor the following season but a serious shoulder injury at the beginning of the 17/18 campaign saw him out for 202 days.

Nick Pope came in and impressed and Heaton, 34, left for Aston Villa last summer.

But after claiming the No1 jersey for the early part of the campaign, he picked up another season-ending knee injury at Villa Park.

GK: FRASER FORSTER

Concrete No2 behind Hart going into the tournament after an excellent season for Southampton.

Has since fallen out of favour at St Mary’s and in the Three Lions setup.

Spent last season on loan at Celtic and was dropped from England altogether in August 2017.

DEF: RYAN BERTRAND

Not much has changed for the left-back who is still playing for Southampton.

He played a full 90 minutes against Slovakia in the Euros.

Had a decent run in the Three Lions team throughout 2017, but has not featured since November of that year.

DEF: GARY CAHILL

The then Chelsea centre-back was an England regular and Hodgson’s vice-captain ahead of the tournament.

Blues form gradually started to dip in the next two seasons as he aged and eventually left for Crystal Palace last summer where he remains.

DEF: NATHANIEL CLYNE

The impressive Liverpool right-back at the time always had an uphill battle trying to usurp Kyle Walker for England.

And then he had the same problem at Anfield when Trent Alexander-Arnold burst onto the scene during his absence.

The serious knee injury meant he did not play a single minute for the Reds this season and he is now a free-agent having been released.

DEF: DANNY ROSE

Rose was playing some of his best football for Tottenham in 2016 and was a shoe-in at left-back.

He has made 15 England appearances since – but his last came in 2019.

Was loaned to Newcastle in January of this season…
