Young Lions Squad Named

2 November 2017

Young Lions boss Steve Cooper has picked a 21-man squad for the mini-tournament, which kicks-off next Wednesday (November 8) when England face Portugal at Chesterfield.

The England U17s then take on Russia at Burton Albion on Saturday, November 11 before the final game with Germany is hosted at Rotherham United on Tuesday, November 14.

As host nation of the 2018 Euros, Cooper’s team automatically qualify for the finals next May and the head coach will be hoping to go one better than last season when the class of 2016/17 impressed throughout the campaign only to lose the Euro Final in Croatia after a penalty shoot-out against Spain.

But Cooper and his squad made up for that last weekend, beating Spain by 5-2 to lift the U17 World Cup in India.

This season’s new crop of U17s began their campaign in August when they enjoyed victories against Turkey and Scotland at St George’s Park before a narrow 2-1 defeat against Italy in Kidderminster.

The squad:

Goalkeepers
Marcus Dewhurst - Sheffield United
Arthur Okonkwo – Arsenal
Harry Seaden – Southend United

Defenders
Faustino Anjorin - Chelsea
Luis Binks - Tottenham Hotspur
Max Broughton - Bolton Wanderers
Vontae Daley Campbell - Arsenal
Ethan Laird - Manchester United

Midfielders
Elijah Dixon-Bonner - Liverpool
Tommy Doyle - Manchester City
Jimmy Garner - Manchester United
Mason Greenwood - Manchester United
Curtis Jones - Liverpool
Clinton Mola - Chelsea
Tareq Shihab - Brighton & Hove Albion
Louie Sibley – Derby County

Forwards
Arvin Appiah - Nottingham Forest
Bobby Duncan Manchester City
Luis Longstaff - Liverpool
Jack Nolan - Reading
Rayhaan Tulloch - West Bromwich Albion
