Head Coach Noel Blake selects his squad for game with Denmark next week.
England U19s Head Coach Noel Blake has selected an 18-man squad for the game with Denmark at Brighton & Hove Albion's Amex Stadium next week.
The match is the U19s' first on home soil this season and with a sell-out crowd and the game being shown live on FATV, it promises to be an interesting night.
Blake's team returned from the Limoges Tournament in France last month after finishing top in a group containing Portugal, Ukraine and France and the majority of that squad will be in action again as they continue preparations for next year's European U19 Championship Elite Qualifying Round.
However, there are three players selected who weren't involved in the trip to France with Everton defender Jake Bidwell, Manchester United's Ravel Morrison and Middlesbrough's Luke Williams all getting an opportunity to make an impression.
Goalkeepers: Connor Ripley (Middlesbrough), Jamal Blackman (Chelsea)***
Defenders: Todd Kane (Chelsea), Andre Wisdom (Liverpool), Jamaal Lascelles (Nottingham Forest), Jake Bidwell (Everton), Nathaniel Chalobah (Chelsea), Aziz Deen Conteh (Chelsea)**, Jon Flanagan (Liverpool)^
Midfielders: Conor Coady (Liverpool), George Thorne (West Bromwich Albion), Larnell Cole (Manchester United), Luke Williams (Middlesbrough), Nicholas Yennaris (Arsenal), Ross Barkley (Everton)^^
Forwards: Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur), Adam Morgan (Liverpool), Robert Hall (West Ham United)*.
