England Under-19s take on the Netherlands and Japan next week and head coach Aidy Boothroyd has named a 21-man squad for the games.

The Young Lions meet up at St. George’s Park early next week before flying out to face the Dutch on Thursday 12 November at the Juliano Sportpark.

And following that match, it is back to England where they will take on Japan at Manchester City’s Academy Stadium on Sunday 15 November.

Boothroyd has made a few changes to the group which finished top of their Euro Qualifying group last month and there’s a place in the squad for West Ham defender Reece Oxford, who captained last season’s U17s.

Everton midfielder Ryan Ledson receives his first call-up for the U19s, having previously featured at U16, U17 and U18 level, as does Manchester City defender Tosin Adarabioyo.

Tickets for the game with Japan cost just £3 for adults and £1 for concessions. Click here for more details.
