Click here to see the player profiles for Brian Eastick's England U18 squad.
Ben Amos, Goalkeeper
Ben has been involved with England for a number of seasons and only injured denied him the chance to turn out at last summer’s U17 World Cup. Last played for England in March 2007 as England beat Serbia to reach the European Championship. Highly regarded both by club and country.
Mark Oxley, Goalkeeper
The Rotherham keeper has been called up to the England set-up for the first time. A product of the Millmoor youth system, he has featured on the bench for the club’s first team on a number of occasions.
Ryan Bennett, Defender
A tall centre-half, Ryan made his debut against MK Dons last season having impressed for Grimsby youth and reserve sides. He has commanded a first-team spot at Grimsby for most of this season, scoring against Notts County in August. This is his first England call-up.
Liam Darville, Defender
A full-back, Liam has been involved with England youth teams before. He was part of the winning Victory Shield squad at U16 level and took part in the Nationwide Tournament a year later.
Lee Hills, Defender
Spent time with Wimbledon and Arsenal before joining Crystal Palace where he made his first-team debut aged just 17. A left-back although comfortable at centre-half, Lee scored his first senior goal against Bristol City in February. Has been included in the England set-up for the first time.
Gavin Hoyte, Defender
Arsenal defender Gavin is normally deployed at centre-half but can also play at full-back - versatility which will please Head Coach Brian Eastick. The younger brother of U21 international Justin, Gavin is strong in the tackle and good in the air. One of the quickest players at Arsenal.
James Reid, Defender
Another player with vast experience of playing for his country at U16, U17 and U18 level. A left-back who can push forward, he was on target for his club during last season's FA Youth Cup. Was part of the squad which took part in the U17 World Cup, claiming an assist against New Zealand.
Jordan Spence, Defender
West Ham United
Jordan has been talismanic since making his debut for England U16s. After leading the Three Lions to the Victory Shield in 2005, the West Ham defender was captain as England reached the Final of the European Championships in Belgium. Skippered the side in the U17 World Cup in Korea and scored against Brazil. Played for the U19s earlier in the season.
Kyle Bennett, Midfielder
The Wolves midfielder has been called up to represent England for the first time. A diminutive middle man with an excellent touch and range of passing, he comes alive in the last third and is not afraid to shoot. Has been included in the squad after Arsenal’s Rhys Murphy withdrew.
Danny Drinkwater, Midfielder
Danny made an immediate impression on Head Coach Brian Eastick by scoring on his debut against Ghana in November. The midfielder has been with United for more than seven years and is now a first-year scholar with the Old Trafford club. Comfortable with the ball at both feet, Danny has an excellent range of passing.
Daniel Gosling, Midfield
Dan became the fourth youngest player in Plymouth Argyle’s history when he made his debut against Hull in December 2006. Impressed at the U17 World Cup and was outstanding against Ghana in November, the defensive midfielder has since moved to Everton.
Daniel Rose, Midfielder
Formerly of Leeds United, Daniel is now part of the set-up at White Hart Lane having switched clubs last summer. A left winger with pace and skill, the 17 year old played an important part in England's run to the European Championship Final. Injury denied him the chance to play at the U17 World Cup.
Richie Smallwood, Midfield
Another who has been given his first ever international call-up, Richie is a committed midfielder who is good in the air and strong in the tackle. Captains his age group at Middlesbrough and displays a maturity beyond his years.
Medy Elito, Forward
Medy has won five caps for his country, the last coming against Ghana in November. He made his debut in a 1-0 win against Portugal in February's Algarve Tournament and made two appearances at the recent U17 World Cup against New Zealand and Germany. Scored his first goal for Colchester against West Brom last month.
Tom Elliott, Forward
Tom has been recalled to the squad after Jay Thomas of Arsenal was withdrawn. The Leeds man is an imposing figure with pace to burn – key attributes for any aspiring forward. He has played for England before, making three appearances at U16 level.
Jonathan Franks, Forward
A powerful forward with pace and skill, Jonathan was a permanent fixture during his first year with England in the U16 age group. Figured again at U17 level and was part of the squad which reached the final of the European Championships. Caught the eye during the U17 World Cup in Korea and was again on form in the recent win over Ghana.
Victor Moses, Forward
With pace and power, Victor is a handful for any defence. Throw in his eye for goal and here is a talented young striker. He was on target during the U17 European Championships and World Cup. Watch out for his spectacular goal celebration – something Palace fans enjoyed after he scored against West Brom recently.
Daniel Welbeck, Forward
Daniel made his debut against Wales at Under-16 level two years ago and was a key component in England's run to the European Championship Finals, starting three games. Scored twice against New Zealand in the U17 World Cup and netted the first goal against Ghana in November. Singled out by Sir Alex Ferguson as one to watch.
