Kyle Walker, Danny Rose and Kyle Naughton have all been named in a 40-man provisional England Under-21 squad for this summer’s European Championship Finals in Denmark.
The trio will be hoping to make the cut when the party is whittled down to a final 23 by Head Coach Stuart Pearce on June 1.
The Young Lions will then begin an intensive preparation for the Finals, with a warm-up friendly with Norway scheduled for June 5, three days before they travel to Scandinavia.
After finishing tournament runners-up in Sweden two years ago, England will be looking to go one better this time around, and kick off their group stage campaign against Spain on June 12 before games with Ukraine and Czech Republic as they attempt to advance.
