The England squad for next month’s FIFA U17 World Cup has been selected by head coach Steve Cooper.
A 21-man group will make the trip to India for the competition, where they will face Mexico, Chile and Iraq in the first round, based in Kolkata.
- 6-28 October 2017
- Sunday 8 October: England v Chile
- Wednesday 11 October: Mexico v England

Cooper has been able to call upon most of the players who helped England to qualify for the World Cup, after reaching the final of the U17 European Championship last season.
The squad enjoyed two warm-up games in September, drawing with Brazil in Shrewsbury before suffering a 2-1 defeat by South Africa in Leek.
Added to that group is Jadon Sancho, who missed the September get-together whilst completing a switch from Manchester City to Borussia Dortmund.
There is a first England call-up for Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher, who has impressed with his form at Stamford Bridge for their U18s.
The Young Lions enjoyed a strong campaign last time around, reaching the Euro Finals in Croatia with distinction before suffering their first defeat of the season after a penalty shootout in the final against Spain.
