Townsend and Shaw out of England party

Winger Andros Townsend and left-back Luke Shaw have been replaced in England's squad for next month's finals by uncapped Nathan Redmond and Jack Robinson.

Tottenham Hotspur FC winger Andros Townsend has withdrawn from the England squad for the forthcoming UEFA European Under-21 Championship finals and has been replaced by Nathan Redmond.

Townsend will not travel to Israel for the tournament after the English Football Association (FA) initiated disciplinary proceedings against the 21-year-old. Uncapped Birmingham City FC player Redmond helped England to the semi-finals of the 2012 European U19 Championship in Estonia, scoring once in four appearances.

Southampton FC left-back Luke Shaw has also pulled out of Stuart Pearce's 23-man party. The 17-year-old, who has an unspecified injury, has made way for Liverpool FC's Jack Robinson. England open their Group A campaign against Italy on 5 June, with games against Norway and the hosts to follow.
