begins preparations this week as his 18-man squad
looks ahead to the European Elite Qualifying Round in Belgium.
England U19s get their tilt at qualification for the Finals in Lithuania under way on Friday when the four-team mini-tournament kicks off.
First up is a meeting with Georgia before they face host nation, Belgium, and 'auld enemy' Scotland for a place in July’s UEFA European Championship in Lithuania.
Blake has been forced into a couple of changes from the squad he named earlier this month, but his team are training at St. George's Park in high spirits after three successive victories over Finland
and previously topping their group in the First Qualifying Round last October.
They head out to Belgium later this week where only the nation who finishes top of the group will progress to the last eight of the competition. The Finals take place in Lithuania between 20 July and 1 August.
