And the head coach has called up a group of 23 players for the trip, who will also have further training camps back at St. George’s Park before the tournament begins on 2 July.

The Young Lions secured their space in the Finals after picking up three wins from three games against Norway, Spain and Belarus in the Elite Qualifying Round in March.

Their first game comes against Bulgaria in Tblisi on Monday 3 July, before they play the Netherlands three days later.

The final group match against Germany takes place on Sunday 9 July, a game which will be shown live on Eurosport.

The majority of the group have featured under Downing during the campaign so far, but there are also chances for Swindon’s Will Henry , Stoke’s Tom Edwards, Luton Town’s James Justin and Arsenal’s Josh DaSilva to make an impression in their first involvement with the group.
