England Prepare For French Tournament

Kenny Swain has named an 18-man squad for the trip to France

Kenny Swain has selected his Under 16s side to take part in the Montaigu Tournament later this month.

The French tournament will be held from 20-25th April in the town.

England have just came off the back of winning the Sky Sports Victory Shield and will have every reason to go into the tournament confident.

Another tournament success for Swain’s youngsters will put many of them in a good position to make next season’s Under 17s side.

England will play four games over the five days against different opponents.

In the heat it will be an intense test for the lads with games against Uruguay, UAE and Ivory Coast before playing a final and fourth match against either France, Portugal, USA or Japan to decide their final position.

Success in this tournament is not far from England as they lost in the final last year against Portugal following a penalty shoot-out.

The two previous years England were victorious in the tournament.

Full Squad: Devante Cole, Leo Chambers, Shay Facey, George Cole, Fankaty Dabo, Jordan Graham, Jordan Houghton, Ryan Innis, Reece Mitchell, David Moli, Ben Pearson, Diego Poyet, Callum Robertson, Jack Rose, Joe Rothwell, Luke Shaw, Kieran Wallace, George Willis
