Arsenal's Wilshere, Liverpool's Carroll named in England U21 squad

Arsenal young gun Jack Wilshere and Liverpool star striker Andy Carroll have both been named in the England U21 squad for this summer's European Championships in Denmark.

There was some doubt whether the talented duo, who have both represented the England senior team this year, would be picked by Stuart Pearce but today their names were confirmed on a 40-man list.

Pearce has assembled a very strong squad with the likes of other senior call-ups including Danny Welbeck, Kieran Gibbs, Micah Richards, Jordan Henderson, Chris Smalling and Kyle Walker among the ranks.

Pearce will cut his list of 40 down to 23 by June 1 ahead of the tournament's commencement date of June 11. England meet Ukraine, Spain and Czech Republic in their group.
