Despite losing their final Group game to the USA on Saturday afternoon, the Young Lions have done enough to secure their place in the Final of The Montaigu Tournament, where they will face France on Monday.
The Young Lions' victories over Japan and Germany in the first two games proved enough to see them finish top of their table and with Germany holding an identical record, England progress courtesy of their victory over them on Thursday and they will now play the hosts in a bid to win the competition.
After playing the first two games within the space of 24 hours, Coach Noel Blake rotated the squad, ensuring that all of the players had started at least one game.
Meanwhile, Arsenal defender Oliver Nicholas hasn't been involved since the Japan game after picking up an injury in that match.
England: Adam Davies, Keanu Marsh-Brown, Ezekiel Fryers, Angus Macdonald, Ryan Tunnicliffe, Nathaniel Mendez-Laing (Sam Byles, 68) Josh McEachran, Jamie Reckord, Jacob Walcott (Jonjo Shelvey, 73) Liam Head (Luke Freeman, 65) Luke Garbutt.
