Forster and Bertrand in England's final EURO 2016 squad

By SFC Media time Tue 31 May Club

Southampton's Fraser Forster and Ryan Bertrand have been included in England's final squad for EURO 2016.

The pair were today confirmed as being part of the 23-man group that will make the journey to France for this summer's tournament.

For both players, it will be the first time they have been involved in the European Championship.

Saints keeper Forster has previous experience of a major international tournament, having been part of the England squad at the 2014 World Cup, although he did not feature in Brazil.

He and left-back Bertrand linked up with England after the end of the Premier League season, for the preparation matches at home to Turkey and Australia, the latter of which they both started.

England will now play one last warm-up match, as they take on Portugal this Thursday at Wembley Stadium, before they make the journey to France.

Roy Hodgson's side will open their campaign against Russia on Saturday 11th June, before then also taking on Wales and Slovakia in the group stages.
