The England squad for next week's games in Estonia has been named
England’s Futsal team face two friendly fixtures against Estonia in Tallinn next week as the Three Lions prepare for the FIFA Futsal World Cup qualifiers in Israel later this month.

Peter Sturgess’s side, currently ranked 58th in the world, will be favourites going into these two friendly matches against an Estonian side who are 35 places below England.

But England will not be complacent as they look to fine-tune their performances ahead of a tough test in Israel where England will battle to qualify for the Main Round of the World Cup for the first time in their history.

There are some new faces in the squad for Estonia, with young players impressing within recent England U23 and U19 squads vying for consideration in the senior side. 

Robbie Bettson, Mark Croft, Tom Dennis and Arthur Rogers are all hoping to earn their first England cap at some point during the two matches in Tallinn, and will be hoping that they can impress enough to be retained for the World Cup Qualifiers.

England will play Estonia in Tallinn on 16 October (6pm) and 17 October (5pm).  

The squad

Jordan Parker, Mark Croft, Tom Dennis, Doug Reed, Ian Parkes, Agon Rexha, James Webb, Will Rooke, Luke Ballinger, Richard Ward, Robbie Bettson, Arthur Rogers, Russell Goldstein, Raoni Medina.
