England Under 17s Squad Announced

3 March 2016

The England Under 17s visit Chesterfield this month and the squad for the Euro Elite Qualifying Round has been named by head coach Steve Cooper.

With Ukraine, Turkey - in Chesterfield - and Finland providing the opposition, the Young Lions will have home advantage for the mini-tournament too.

If Cooper’s side can finish top of the group, they will qualify for this summer’s Euro Finals in Azerbaijan in May, whilst even the second-placed team could progress depending on how the other Elite Round groups finish across Europe.

A number of the group who emerged from the First Qualifying Round in top spot last October, beating San Marino and Armenia before drawing with hosts Portugal, are involved again.
 
And England go into the game on the back of three matches at the Algarve Tournament, where they drew with Germany and Portugal before ending with a 2-0 reverse against the Dutch.

England kick-off their games against Turkey at theProact Stadium at 7pm on Thursday 24 March.
 
They then take on Finland at Leek Town’s Harrison Park two days later at 3pm on Saturday 26 March.
 
And the final match day of the group pits the Young Lions against Ukraine at Burton Albion’s Pirelli Stadium at 7pm on Tuesday 29 March.

Goalkeepers:  Jared Thompson (Chelsea), Adam Parkes (Southampton)
 
Defenders: Japhet Tanganga (Tottenham Hotspur), Edward Francis (Manchester City), Trevoh Chalobah (Chelsea), Tolaji Bola (Arsenal), Jaden Brown (Tottenham Hotspur), Dujon Sterling (Chelsea), Ryan Sessegnon (Fulham)

Midfielders: Marcus McGuane (Arsenal), Andre Dozzell (Ipswich Town), Mason Mount (Chelsea), Dennis Adeniran (Fulham)

Forwards: Reiss Nelson (Arsenal), Samuel Shasoua (Tottenham Hotspur), Martell Taylor-Crossdale (Chelsea), Ben Morris (Ipswich Town), Jonathan Leko (West Bromwich Albion)
