England will have a red tint this summer with Manchester United's Chris Smalling, Wayne Rooney, Marcus Rashford and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson been called up to the England senior and under-19 squads respectively. 

Wild cards 

Roy Hodgson named his provisional 26-man squad on Monday ahead of this summer's Euro 2016 tournament. 

Smalling and Rooney are no strangers to the senior team with combined total of 133 caps between the pair.

However this will be 18-year-old Rashford's first appearance at senior level having only played at under-20 level so far and the call up by Hodgson marks the peak of his meteoric rise scoring seven in 16 senior appearances since his debut back in February. 

It is expected that the youngster will be there for the experience and the friendlies against Turkey, Australia, and Portugal but Hodgson didn't rule out Rashford been named in the final 23 

Hodgson told BBC Sport that the competition for places is "quite strong" but admitted that there is "no reason why" Rashford couldn't "knock someone off their perch" but will be "harder" than people might expect. 

Borthwick-Jackson is another youngster that has been brought through by Louis van Gaal making his senior debut in November and merited a place in Aidy Boothroyd's side.

Jackson has already made two appearances at under-19 level and is expected to feature heavily in double-header against Mexico ahead of this summer's under-19 European Championships in Germany

Missing out 

There are some obvious omissions from Hodgson's squad from the Red Devils with Luke Shaw been left out to continue his recovery from his horrific leg injury earlier in the season. 

Michael Carrick was another name that was left out of the provisional squad with the likes of Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Jordan Henderson and Fabian Delph all being included. 

Hodgson explained the omission of the 34-year-old saying that Carrick had "played a part" in the side on a regular basis over the "last two years" and has been "unfortunate with injuries". 

He continued saying that Carrick is a player he "respect and admire" but said that he had to "make a decision" and that there are "only 23 players.”

Manchester United will face Crystal Palace in the FA Cup final at Wembley on Saturday, May 21 with kick-off at 5:30pm BST.
