Euro winners make step up

Three members of England’s European U17 Championship-winning squad have made the step up to the U19s for a match against Germany on Monday 8 September.

Charlton defender Joe Gomez, Chelsea attacker Izzy Brown and Fulham forward Patrick Roberts all helped steer the Young Lions to Euro glory in Malta in May.

The trio will get their maiden experience of the U19 set-up when John Peacock takes his side to Oberhausen, in eastern Germany, for a testing fixture.

Also included in the squad is MK Dons midfielder Dele Alli, who impressed as the League One side knocked Manchester United out of the League Cup on Tuesday night, and Middlesbrough forward Bradley Fewster who scored as the Championship outfit edged out Preston North End.

This match against the current European U19 champions is being used as preparation for this season’s Euro qualifiers.

England have been drawn alongside Belgium, Belarus and host nation Luxembourg.

The matches will take place between 10-15 October.
