Arsenal fullback Hector Bellerin got a major positive news on the Euro 2016 final squads deadline day as he has been included in the final 23-member list for Spain for the tournament in France. Germany hotshot Marco Reus, however, received a worrying news on Tuesday, also his birthday.
Reus, identified as one of the key attacking midfielders for Die Mannschaft, has been left out of the final 23-member squad by Joachim Low owing to injury worries. The 27-year-old Borussia Dortmund star had also missed the FIFA World Cup in 2014.
"The medical staff could not give a clear prognosis for Marco," Low was quoted as saying by the BBC on Reus' omission from the final squad. "He has massive injury problems and the medical staff was very sceptical about his ability to last through the coming weeks and such a gruelling tournament.
"It is a bitter decision and bitter for Marco."
Bellerin, meanwhile, who was among the list of standbyes in the provisional squad for Spain, has found a place in the final 23 on Tuesday, after Real Madrid midfielder Dani Carvajal was ruled out of Euro 2016. Carvajal, 24, suffered a thigh injury during his team's game against Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League final last Saturday.
"I had to leave and I knew there and then that I would probably miss Euro 2016," Carvajal told Spanish radio station Cadena Cope.
For England, the big news remains that Manchester United rising star Marcus Rashford finds a place in the final 23-man list named by Roy Hodgson. Fabian Delph, Danny Drinkwater and Andros Townsend have missed out.
