The England squad for the FIFA U20 World Cup in South Korea has been named by head coach Paul Simpson.
After a successful campaign this season, which has seen the Young Lions beat nations such as Germany, Netherlands, France and USA in a series of warm-up competitions, Simpson has narrowed down his 21-man squad.
- 20 May - 11 June 2017
- Korea Republic
- Argentina v England: 6.30am, Saturday 20 May
- England v Guinea: 8am, Tuesday 23 May
- Korea Republic v England: 12pm, Friday 26 May
And the group meet up at St. George’s Park on Monday afternoon before heading east to Osaka in Japan on Tuesday, where they will spend a six-day training camp ahead of the tournament.
Simpson has been able to call upon the majority of the group who have featured throughout the season, many of who were part of the U19s squad who secured World Cup qualification following their performance at the European Championship Finals last July.
AFC Bournemouth midfielder Lewis Cook and Middlesbrough defender Dael Fry will join the squad in Korea after next weekend's Premier League games.
Meanwhile, Patrick Roberts, Axel Tuanzebe and Izzy Brown have been declared unavailable for the trip due to first-team commitments with Celtic, Manchester United and Huddersfield Town respectively.
