Danny Drinkwater on England squad exclusion
Leicester City’s Danny Drinkwater reacted to his exclusion from the England squad in a respectful and classy manner via Instagram, on Tuesday morning.
The midfielder who has made the most tackles of any English player in the Premier League this season (103), had previously been called up to Roy Hodgson’s 26-man provisional squad. However, after the news of final 23-man squad broke on Tuesday morning, it was apparent Drinkwater would miss out on what could’ve been his first ever major tournament for England.
The 26-year-old had never played for England until this season, picking up his first ever cap against Netherlands in March. However, he still feels disappointed to have not made the squad – which is of course understandable considering the season his club, Leicester City, have had.
Drinkwater took to Instagram to voice his opinion on the exclusion, staying very classy in his post. The Leicester City man admitted he was disappointed (not to make the squad) but stated that he would support the country like he always has in the past. He then ended the post by saying “Good luck to the lads… Bring it home”.
