Newcastle legend Shearer: Chelsea, Man City players have England going to Euros absolutely flying

Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer believes England go into the Euros in flying form.

Shearer wrote in The Sun: "I believe what Manchester City and Chelsea have achieved this season could have a real knock-on effect for England.

"Goalkeeper Joe Hart will go into those Championships feeling 10 feet tall as will Joleon Lescott, Gareth Barry and James Milner.

"Now, we have the heroics of Ashley Cole, Gary Cahill and, not least, Frank Lampard to throw into the mix.

"John Terry will still get a boost from lifting the trophy even if he didn’t play.

"Hart, Cole, Cahill and Terry will make up most of England’s the back four.

"Lampard will be at the centre of midfield and I’m convinced Barry and Milner will also play a big part.

"They will all go into the tournament believing that with belief and determination anything is possible."
