Kane in, Shaw out of England U21s

20 May 2015, 16:54

London - Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane was on Wednesday named in England Under-21s' provisional 27-man squad for this year's European Championship, but Manchester United's Luke Shaw was left out.

Kane, 21, is the top English scorer in the Premier League with 20 goals and made a goal-scoring England senior debut against Lithuania in March.

Spurs head coach Mauricio Pochettino has voiced concerns about Kane playing too much, but the striker has been selected by England Under-21 coach Gareth Southgate for the June 17-30 tournament in the Czech Republic.

Left-back Shaw, 19, was also expected to be included in the squad, which will be reduced to 23 players prior to the tournament.

But United manager Louis van Gaal recently called for him to be spared the trip, after a debut season at Old Trafford in which the teenager has been dogged by injuries.

Everton defender John Stones, 20, was included in the squad, but his 21-year-old midfield club-mate Ross Barkley was left out.

West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino and Burnley striker Danny Ings were also called up.

England senior manager Roy Hodgson will announce his squad for next month's friendly against Ireland and 2016 European Championship against Slovenia on Thursday.
