Elsewhere, Samuel Shashoua and Jaden Brown have been in action for England Under-17s in recent days, helping the Young Lions reach the quarter-finals of the European Under-17 Championships.

As previously reported , the pair featured in England’s 2-1 defeat to Sweden as they got their Group C campaign underway last week but there were better fortunes for Steve Cooper’s side on Monday (May 9) as they beat France 2-0 in their second outing of the competition in Azerbaijan. Attacking midfielder Samuel entered the fray on 79 minutes with the Young Lions already two goals to the good while Jaden was an unused substitute.

On Thursday (May 12), Jaden was the one to step off the bench as England defeated Denmark 3-1 to book their place in the last eight. The left-back’s introduction came midway through the second period while Samuel remained on the bench.

The Young Lions will face Spain in the quarter-finals on Sunday.
