Young Lions open their Maurice Revello Tournament campaign against Japan this Saturday

Leeds United midfielder Jamie Shackleton has been called up to England's U20s squad for the Maurice Revello Tournament.

After a breakthrough season, which saw the 19 year old make his professional debut against Derby last August, and feature 24 times for the Whites,  Shackleton joined up with the Young Lions this week for their training camp.

The tournament in Toulon marks Shackleton's first international call up, and he'll be joined by fellow Leeds United player Tom Pearce in the squad, who lifted the trophy last year with England.

Paul Simpson's side face their first test on Saturday 1st June against Japan, before taking on their counterparts from Portugal and Chile over the next week, as they look to progress from Group A.

Following the conclusion of the group stage, the winners of each group will progress to the semi-final, along with the best-placed runner-up from the three pools.
