Archie Gray Picked For England U17s Squad

Young Lions set to face Denmark, Northern Ireland and the Netherlands

Leeds United midfielder Archie Gray is the latest player to be called up for March's internationals, after being selected for England U17s EURO qualifiers.

Restricted to just 6 PL2 appearances this season due to injury, Gray made his U21s return in the recent 3-0 and 3-1 wins over Derby and Sunderland respectively, whilst also being named to the bench for the first team games against Chelsea and Wolves.

Ryan Garry’s Young Lions face three games over the next week against Denmark, Northern Ireland and the Netherlands, as they aim to seal a place at this summer’s EURO Finals in Hungary.

Garry has named a 21-strong squad to tackle the group, kicking-off against the Danes in Katwijk on Wednesday evening (6pm GMT).

They will then face Northern Ireland in Noordwijk on Saturday (12pm GMT) before it's back to Quick Boys FC in Katwijk for the final game against the Dutch on Tuesday 28 March (8pm GMT).

The nation which tops the group will progress to the U17 EURO Finals in Hungary, which take place between 17 May and 2 June.
