Ryan Garry has named his squad for the tournament in Indonesia

Ryan Garry has named his 21-man squad for the 2023 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Indonesia.

The Young Lions will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of players like Phil Foden and Marc Guéhi by lifting the U-17 World Cup like Steve Cooper’s side did in 2017.

The England team competing at the U-17 World Cup in Indonesia will largely consist of players from last season’s MU17 squad, so this year’s MU18s.

Garry’s men will start their U-17 World Cup against New Caledonia on Saturday 11 November (kick-off at 9am GMT) before facing Iran on Tuesday 14 November (12pm GMT).

The Young Lions will then conclude Group C against Brazil on Friday 17 November (12pm GMT), with the top two from each group and four best third-placed teams progressing to the round of 16.

The tournament will end with the final at the Manahan Stadium in Surakarta on Sunday 2 December.
