Pearce Names Squad for Iceland and Belgium Tests

Stuart Pearce will be hopeful of qualification with wins against Iceland and Belgium

Stuart Pearce has named his squad that will face Iceland and Belgium in their European Under-21 Championship Qualifying Campaign.

The first game takes place at Colchester’s Weston Homes Stadium next Thursday night against Iceland.

The side will then face Belgium on 14th November at RAEC Mons.

England currently hold a three-point lead at the top of their qualifying group and Pearce is looking to steer them towards their fourth successive qualification.

Henri Lansbury misses out on the squad due to injury whilst Nathaniel Clyne, Alex Nimely, Lewis Dunk, Jacob Butterfield, and Tom Carroll are five new players to make the side.

Jack Butland will be scared by the return of Jason Steele who was first-choice in this summer’s tournament after returning from an injury.
