Sells endorsee Fraser Forster has been included in England's provisional 26-man squad for Euro 2016.

The Southampton number one has been called up by coach Roy Hodgson and his aim this summer is to push for a starting place, currently occupied by Joe Hart.

"Everyone knows that Joe is the number one and he deserves that. He is obviously a top 'keeper. That is the challenge for the rest of us to try and push him as hard as we can," said Forster. "I am just focused on working as hard as I can to get myself in the best possible shape."

England start as fourth favourites to win the competition and Forster believes an exciting summer lies ahead for the Three Lions.

"If you look at the last couple of years, so many good players have come through and it can only be a positive for English football.

"There is a lot of cause for positivity for the summer but I think it's just about not putting too much pressure there and everyone getting behind the team and trying to be super positive."

Simon Mignolet kept a clean sheet as Liverpool booked their place in the Europa League final against Sevilla.

The Reds beat Villarreal 3-0 at Anfield in the semi-final, second leg, to take the tie 3-1 on aggregate – and the Sells endorsee is looking forward to playing in his first European final.

"We're very happy," he said after the game. "We scored at the right moments and defensively we were very solid.

"It maybe looked a bit easier than it was. Villarreal are a good side but the gaffer made a really good plan before the game. We put that on the pitch. It was a nice day at the office.

"The fans were driving us on. Not only from kick-off, but also when the coach was coming to the stadium.

"I think Villarreal were a bit surprised by that. They didn't really know what was happening around them."

While Liverpool have beaten Manchester United, Borussia Dortmund and now the 'Yellow Submarine' on their way to the final in Basel, they face a Sevilla side that has won the past two Europa League finals.

"We've done really well in the competition, we've gone step by step," he added. "Now we're in the final we need to stay calm. Sevilla have a lot of experience in this competition.

"It won't be easy. But when you see how we played [against Villarreal] there's nothing to worry about. If we can perform like that we will have a good chance.

"This club is used to going to major finals and winning trophies. It's something to look forward to. We have to stay focused on the job and try to do the best we can."
