tuart Pearce has selected an England Under-21 side packed with star names from the Premier League for next Tuesday’s international at Hull’s KC Stadium.
Several players who have featured in Fabio Capello’s senior set-up will return to the Under-21 team for the match against Slovenia on 19 August including Micah Richards, Theo Walcott, David Wheater, Tom Huddlestone and Gabriel Agbonlahor.
Former Hull City loan star Fraizer Campbell has also been named in the 24 man squad.
Tickets are priced just £10 for adults and £5 concessions for the first Under-21 match of the season which will be an important part of the build-up for a European Championship qualifier against Portugal at Wembley Stadium on Friday 5 September.
England are on course to qualify for the play-offs in October when they will be aiming to secure a place in next summer’s European Championship in Sweden.
Pearce said: “It is a very strong squad and it’s a sign of our intent for the season coming up not just for the Under-21s but the seniors as well.”
He continued: “Fraizer Campbell is a player that the Hull fans will know well and he was a massive part of Hull getting into the Premier League.
“The fact he has been around the Manchester United squad in pre-season shows he is progressing and he showed an excellent attitude when he was involved in the Under-21s at the end of last season.”
Pearce added: “I’m looking forward to playing at Hull. I had a trial with the club when I was 17 and played for the reserves. I also took Manchester City there for pre-season games.
“The city will be a vibrant place at the moment with the Premier League season about to kick off and we’d like to see a big crowd turn out to see the Under-21s.”
