England 2016 Provisional Euro squad breaks Defoe heart&leaves Rashford happy!

Roy Hodgson announces 26 man provisional england squad for Euro 2016 with Rashford in the team and defoe missing out.
England 2016 Provisonal 26 man Euro squad-England Head-coach Roy Hodgson today named his provisional 26 man team for the EURO 2016 tournament to be held in France this summer and Man U's 18 year old Marcos Rashford was the surprise entry while Arsenal's Theo Walcott and Jermain Defoe the surprise exclusions. I think Jermaine Defoe i particular is very unlucky to have missed the squad.Even though Sturridge is a quality striker,i would not take him on this trip cos he has been out for most of the season and his fitness is suspect.How many times have England lost out in the past because they have
chosen England squads based on sentiments when the players were clearly not fit enough?

We took a 17 year old to the world cup and he did not play a single game while top scorer Defoe was left at home.In 1982 Kevin Keegan was half fit for Spain we took him still and it cost the team,same thing happened with Bryan Robson,a qualty player and the best England player at that time,but he was not fit,his shoulder kept popping out,and when he was needed most,he got injured.
How about Wayne Rooney? Twice he has been chosen in the England squad when he was not fit and it cost England.

Marcus Rashford is the incredible success story oft this season as he makes England Euro 2016 provisional squad.
Are we not better taking a fit player than a great player who will only play 1 match half heartedly? And this is why i would have chosen Jermaine Defoe ahead of Daniel Sturridge in the England Euro 2016 squad.
Jermaine Defoe misses out on England squad for Euro 201...AGAIN!
