Head Coach Brian Eastick has named his squad for the friendly match with Czech Republic later this month.
The Young Lions continue their preparations for May's Elite Qualifying Round, when they will host Scotland, Slovakia and Bosnia-Herzegovina in a bid to reach the European U19 Championship Finals which take place in Ukraine in July.
After slipping to a defeat against Spain in their last game in February, Eastick will be looking for his team to bounce back at Walsall and the 18-man squad he has named contains some regulars and a few new faces.
There are first-time call-ups for Tottenham Hotspur striker Jon Obika and Jordan Henderson, who is currently on loan at Coventry City from Sunderland.
Players such as Kyle Walker, Martin Kelly and Andrew Tutte also get another chance to impress again after being named for the first time in the squad for the Spain match, whilst Leeds defender Aidan White is back after being forced out of the last fixture through injury.
Tickets for the game are on sale now, so call the Banks’s Stadium Ticket Office on 0871 663 0111/0222 for more details.The Squad
