John Peacock has named his squad to play in the St George’s Park International Tournament later this month.
Portugal, Italy and Turkey will also compete in the tournament that will be held at Hinckley United, Burton Albion and Northampton Town.
Peacock told thefa.com: “The likes of Portugal, Turkey and Italy will give us a very good benchmark as to our current standing in Europe. That said, this is a friendly tournament that will give all four teams a good chance to gauge the quality and depth of their squads.
“Our short term objective is to give all players an equal chance to show what they can do in this tournament,” he said.
“But our prime objective for this season is to once again qualify for the European U17 Championship Finals next May. We have an excellent track record in that competition over the last ten years, the highlight being winning it in Liechtenstein in 2010.
“All four teams will be working towards the Euros and having the chance to spend nine days training and playing in testing matches will be a big help, and a key reason why we always like to hold this tournament.” added the Head Coach.
