Young Lions head coach Simon Rusk has picked his squad for three games in November


England men’s under-19s will head to southern Spain in November to play three games against Romania, Japan and Mexico at the Marbella Football Centre.

Head coach Simon Rusk has named a 24-strong squad for the trip, which starts with Romania on Wednesday 15 November (5pm GMT), before they tackle Japan on Saturday 18 November (1pm GMT) and then round off against Mexico on Tuesday 21 November (5pm GMT).

Last month saw the Young Lions in UEFA U19 EURO qualifying action when they drew all three games against group hosts Montenegro, Wales and Austria. That leaves England waiting on the results from the remaining qualifying groups which will take place in November, before the teams who head into next year’s elite qualifying round are confirmed.
