John Bostock played all three matches as England Under-17s qualified for the UEFA European U17 Championship Finals in May.

The midfielder - who became our youngest-ever first team player earlier this season - played the full game as the Young Lions made it three wins out of three in the Elite Qualfying Round in Hungary on Monday.

England beat hosts Hungary 2-0 in Szombathely having already accounted for Portugal 1-0 on Wednesday and Serbia 2-1 on Friday.

England join hosts Germany, holders Spain, Holland, France and Italy in the finals with two more places still up for grabs.

The finals draw takes place in Leipzig, Germany on Friday and the finals are staged in Germany between May 6-18.

UNDER-21S BACK IN ACTION

Dorian Dervite could face three of his Spurs team-mates when England take on France at Nottingham Forest in Tuesday night's friendly.

Currently on loan at Southend, Dorian played 90 minutes as France beat Estonia on Friday and should be in line to face Tom Huddlestone, Fraizer Campbell and Jamie O'Hara at the Forest Ground. All three started in England's 5-0 win in Norway on Friday.

Goalkeeper Oscar Jansson looks likely to start for Sweden U21s in Tuesday's friendly against Belgium after being an unused substitute when the teams met on Friday, Belgium won 2-1.

ELSEWHERE...

Adel Taarabt - on as a substitute against Gabon on Saturday - is in the Morocco squad for the friendly against Angola.

David Button is in the England U20 squad for a friendly against Italy at QPR.
