QPR boss Mark Hughes says England should have taken Manchester United icon Paul Scholes to the Euros.

Hughes wrote in the Daily Mail: "England have lost so many players to injury. They will miss talent and experience so I wonder if they thought about a call to Paul Scholes.

"He came out of retirement for Manchester United and was fantastic. He doesn’t give the ball away. I know Paul drew a line under his international career, but it would have been a call worth making. Just in case.

"All these injuries are a consequence of the league we play in. When players get to the end of a long season, you have to be careful with them. How much have they got left in the tank? The Premier League is becoming more intense."
