John Peacock has named his England Under 17s squad for the Pepsi International Tournament next month.The Three Lions will take on Italy, Russia and Portugal in the annual youth tournament to be played at Gillingham's Priestfield Stadium between 1st and 5th September.
Current holders Portugal, who have knocked the U17s out of the last two European Championships at the semi-final stage, will once again provide a stern test for England's youngsters.
