The U18s beat Netherlands, Russia and France in September's games in Limoges

England U18s will return to St. George’s Park in October for two games, with Sweden and Czech Republic providing opposition.

Neil Dewsnip’s side enjoyed a trip to western France last month, when they won three games out of three to lift the Limoges Tournament title.

And the majority of that group are back together again, with their first game against Sweden coming on Thursday 11 October.

They will then tackle the Czechs on Monday 15 October with both games being held at the national football centre.

In terms of the squad, Pascal Kpohomouh is a new name on the roster with the Southampton defender called up for the first time at any level for England. 

“These matches will be a real test for the team, we face two very good and strong opponents who we’ll have to work hard against to break down," said Dewsnip.

“After we enjoyed success in the Limoges Tournament, we’ll be looking to keep up the momentum in these games and look for two good results.”
