The final squad for the tournament in the Czech Republic will eventually be reduced to the final party of 23 prior to the squad's meet-up at St George's Park on 2nd June.
England's first group game is against Portugal in Uherske Hradiste on Thursday 18th June before they take on Sweden on the 1st and Italy on the 24th.
Ross Barkley, about whose inclusion manager Roberto Martinez had expressed reservations, has not been selected.
Martinez had explained his doubts over whether Barkley would benefit from being included in this summer's competition, preferring that the 21 year-old recuperate from a difficult season and have the best preparation for the 2015-16 campaign.

Playing in this tournament is better than spending half the summer getting pissed like most young footballers do.

That means that itÂll be potentially two years of non-stop football, starting now.
If Stones continue to perform at his level, I can imagine him being called up for the senior squad next June, even not as a starter, but as a squad player.
So, the 2016-17 season where it could be breakthrough season (in terms of them becoming real big players for the team) for players like Barkley and Stones (assuming they are still around), might be tampered with that.
The 2015-16 season is of course the one we hope both players go on to establish themselves as the go-to guys. And if they do so, and the team performs well, the 2016-17 season is the one that they can also produce the goods in Europe.
Anyways, that is of course too far to think about, but oh well...
