Hodgson delays England squad decision as he waits on Wilshere, Henderson, Shaw

England manager Roy Hodgson has postponed his squad announcement for Euro2016 until Monday.

Hodgson was expected to announce the squad on Thursday, but according to a statement from the FA, he wants to assess the fitness of some of his players before making a final decision.

Players like Arsenal's Jack Wilshere, Liverpool's Jordan Henderson and Manchester United's Luke Shaw have recently recovered from long-term injuries and are under consideration for the summer's tournament in France.

"Roy Hodgson will name his squad for England's UEFA EURO 2016 preparation matches on Monday 16 May at Wembley Stadium," an FA statement read today.

"Following a meeting at The FA with his coaching staff this afternoon, the Three Lions boss decided to switch his announcement from this Thursday in order to better assess players' fitness after the final games of the Premier League season.

"The squad will be announced via TheFA.com and the official England Twitter account, where you can also follow coverage of Hodgson's subsequent press conference.

"Hodgson's men will report to St. George's Park on Wednesday 18 May, ahead of their friendly against Turkey in Manchester five days later. The Three Lions also face Australia in Sunderland and Portugal at Wembley Stadium connected by EE before heading to France."
