England U18s squad named for three games in March as World Cup winners back together

14 members of the U17 World Cup winning squad are in the England U18s squad in March

England U18s have a busy month with three games lined-up for Neil Dewsnip's side in March.

Head coach Dewsnip has named his squad for the matches with Qatar, Argentina and Belarus, with the selection containing 14 players who were part of last year's U17 World Cup-winning group, who reunite for the first time since October's success in India.

There are also some new faces with Newcastle United defender Adam Wilson and Leicester City winger Callum Wright receiving their first England call-ups at any level.

And there’s an international return for the likes of Brooklyn Lyons-Foster, Ian Carlo-Poveda, Felix Nmecha and Oliver Skipp, who have all won caps at various age group levels in recent seasons.

The Young Lions face Qatar at St. George's Park in their first game on Wednesday 21 March, in a return fixture from the one last season’s U18 group played in Doha.

It’s then a match against Argentina on Friday 23 March, with the young South Americans travelling with their senior team as they face Italy in Manchester later the same day.

Their final game comes against Belarus at St. George's Park on Monday 26 March.
