England manager Roy Hodgson has confirmed that members of his senior squad will be available to under-21 boss Gareth Southgate for Euro 2015.

The likes of Jack Wilshere, Luke Shaw, Phil Jones, Raheem Sterling and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are eligible for the finals in the Czech Republic in June.

The senior side have a Euro 2016 qualifier in Slovenia at the same time.

But Hodgson said: "After Gareth picks his squad, I will pick mine. He can pick any under-21 who's available."

He added: "We can deal with four or five absentees and tournaments are important. But if they're available for me, that's fine, too."

England's qualifying campaign was impressive, winning 10 consecutive matches, and Southgate's side will compete at a fifth finals in a row, where they face 2013 runners-up Italy, Portugal and Sweden.
