The games will be the last before the squad depart for the FIFA U17 World Cup in Chile in October.

England’s group opponents will be Guinea, Brazil and South Korea at showpiece this autumn.

Due to the timing of the tournament, the England squad that qualified by defeating Spain on penalties in May will have moved up to U18s level, although they will still be eligible to participate in South America.
