    place in Englands squad for the European Championships. The midfielder was named
    man of the match at Wembley in what was an impressive international debut
    against the Netherlands.The match was the last before Roy Hodgson names his
    final 23-man squad which will travel to France, and despite not having played in
    any of Englands qualifying games, Drinkwater believes he can still convince the
    England manager he deserves his place on the plane. Hopefully Ive not done
    myself any harm, its just about carrying on now until the end of the season, and
    seeing if I can add to it, he told Sky Sports News HQ after the game. The lads
    have made it easy for me all week, its an easy team to settle in to.A bit of
    game time helped me tonight, I was able get on the ball, so its been easy to
    settle into the squad. I enjoyed it, I saw plenty of the ball, but maybe could
    have moved it a bit faster. I enjoyed the position. Englands Daniel Drinkwater
    (left) and Netherlands Vincent Janssen (right) battle for possession Drinkwater
    admitted the defeat to the Netherlands took the shine off of what was an
    otherwise special night, as England surrendered a first-half lead to lose 2-1.
    He was seen complaining to Spanish referee Antonio Mateu Lahoz after the
    Netherlands scored their winning goal, insisting there was a foul on England
    defender Phil Jagielka in the build-up.The England players also felt aggrieved
    after Danny Rose earlier conceded a penalty for handball, although Drinkwater
    stopped short of criticising the match official.We cant really blame the
    decisions, theyve cost us two goals but we could have maybe moved the ball at
    bit faster, created more chances, so its one of those things, Drinkwater said.
    Personally I enjoyed my debut - it was a big achievement - but overall I was
    disappointed with the result.Englands goal came courtesy of Drinkwaters
    Leicester team-mate, Jamie Vardy, whose place in the England squad must now be
    assured. His name received arguably the loudest cheer when the starting line-up
    was announced before the game - he is rapidly becoming a cult hero among England
    supporters - and his performance only served to confirm he is capable of taking
    his Premier League form onto the international stage. Danny Drinkwater (right)
    has backed Jamie Vardy to succeed with England Vardys goal was the culmination
    of a wonderful team move, and if not as spectacular as Saturday nights finish
    against Germany, it once again showed his predatory instinct in the penalty
    area. With it, his tally for the season rose to 21 goals for club and country,
    and making the final England squad for this summers tournament seemingly
    inevitable.Hes got two in two now, hes more than capable of doing it, Drinkwater
    said. The more goals he gets the better he is and the more confidence hell get.
    Hes flying and the more he gets on the ball the better.For Vardy and Drinkwater
    the focus now turns to the remaining seven Premier League matches, as Leicester
    City look aim to win title in what promises to be a thrilling climax to the
    domestic season. This weekend Leicester City host Southampton on Sunday, live on
