Club rivalries are put to the side (somewhat) in the Transfer Tavern as the nation gears up for Euro 2016, with many excited about the dynamic young side England have currently.
While it is always risky being excited by the Three Lions, who’ve so often let us down, there is certainly a wave of excitement ahead of this summer’s showpiece in France.
Our punters are jotting down their squads of 23 on a bar napkin, though are forgetting one simple pesky thing. Injuries.
Following the news earlier this Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain would be ruled out, both Arsenal and England have been dealt a further blow.
Danny Welbeck, who has proved to be ever the dependant for Roy Hodgson at international level, looks likely to miss the tournament, according to the Daily Mail.
The Gunners forward looks to have strained ligaments in his knee during the game with Manchester City last weekend, with fears he could even miss the start of next season.
As a result, he looks almost certain to miss out, which could open up the doors to the likes of Theo Walcott and Andros Townsend.
Meanwhile, Jordan Henderson is on track to make the squad following his own knee injury that had initially looked like ruling him out.
The Liverpool skipper was injured in April during the Europa League clash with Jordan Henderson, though could even be back in time to feature in the final against Sevilla later this month.
How far can England go in Euro 2016?
