Three Lions call for midfielder.

Leeds United midfielder Ronaldo Vieira has been called up by England for the first time.

Vieira has been included in the provisional squad to represent the Under-20s at the Toulon Tournament held in May and June. 

England will head to the south of France for the annual competition next week with an 18-man squad from a mixture of age groups, ranging from this season’s U18s, U19s and U20s, with the Three Lions set to face Angola, Cuba and Japan in their group stage games.

Head coach Neil Dewsnip has made five new call-ups for the trip, who will all be hoping to pick up their first England caps at any level during the prestigious tournament.

Alongside Vieira, the new faces in the group include Leicester City’s Harvey Barnes, Sheffield United’s David Brooks, Daniel Kemp from West Ham United and Manchester City’s Luke Bolton.

England will play their first game on 29th May against Angola in Aubagne before the first-ever international meeting with Cuba takes place in Salon de Provence three days later.

The group stage is rounded off on 4th June when England return to Aubagne for their clash with Japan and hopefully progression to the semi-finals.

England head to Toulon aiming to defend the title too, after Gareth Southgate’s U21s won the competition last June.
