England boss Roy Hodgson has confirmed his 23-man squad for Euro 2012, with the Three Lions 10/1 with bookmaker to be crowned champions for the first time.
Birmingham City youngster Jack Butland is the third goalkeeper included in the party, acting as back-up to Joe Hart and Robert Green, while Phil Jagielka steps in for the injured Gareth Barry.
Having been drawn in Group D with France, Sweden and co-hosts Ukraine, England are 1/2 to reach the knockout stages and Poland’s Wojciech Szczesny believes that they will be boosted by having the best goalkeeper in the world – Joe Hart.
“If you are asking me who is the best keeper in the world at the moment, I would probably say Joe Hart,” Arsenal gloveman Szczesny said.
“He’s made a big difference to Manchester City and he will be a big help for England.”
England kick off their bid for glory with a meeting with France in Donetsk on Monday 11th June.
