While the 2015-16 Barclays Premier League season ended on Sunday, champions Leicester City continued to celebrate the club's first top-flight title in 132 years by holding a victory parade on Monday.

Over 250,000 people lined the streets of Leicester to watch the team roll through the city on a double-decker bus. It was the second of such parades in three seasons, as Leicester won the FL Championship in 2014.

The Leicester-based punk-rock band Kasabian performed at the parade as well, marking a day of celebration for the city.

English National Team manager Roy Hodgson has named his provisional squad for the UEFA Euros and to the surprise of no one, Jamie Vardy and Danny Drinkwater are on the roster. Vardy scored 24 goals this season for Leicester, leading the Foxes to a Premier League title. Drinkwater, while not valued for his scoring prowess, was unsung in his role in the midfield, pairing with N'Golo Kante to help cut-out passes defensively as well as create chances on offense.

22 of the 23 players on the England squad are from 2015-16 Premier League clubs. Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton is the only player who did not play in the Premier League this past season, but did help his club earn promotion to the English top flight for next season.

Croatia also named its Euro provisional squad today, with on-loan striker Andrej Kramaric making the team. Kramaric will likely play behind Croatia's headliner Mario Mandzukic.
