England call-up for Brooks

16 May 2017

David Brooks has been named in the England squad for the forthcoming Toulon Tournament in France, whilst Regan Slater is currently on standby.

The Young Lions will head to the south of France later this month for the annual competition, with the 18-man squad coming from a mixture of age groups, including U18s, U19s and U20s.

Brooks is one of five first call-ups for the prestigious tournament which will see England face Angola, Cuba and Japan in the group stages.

England will play their first game on 29 May against Angola in Aubagne before the first-ever international meeting with Cuba takes place in Salon de Provence three days later.

The group stage is rounded off on 4 June when England return to Aubagne for their clash with Japan and hopefully progression to the semi-finals.

England head to Toulon aiming to defend the title too, after Gareth Southgate's Under-21s won the competition last June.

The squad in full is as follows...

Goalkeepers: Ellery Balcombe (Brentford), Ryan Schofield (Huddersfield Town)

Defenders: Ezri Konsa (Charlton Athletic), Cameron Borthwick Jackson (Manchester United), Japhet Tanganga (Tottenham Hotspur), Reece James (Chelsea), Joshua Tymon (Hull City)

Midfielders: Harvey Barnes (Leicester City), David Brooks (Sheffield United), Demetri Mitchell (Manchester United), Sadou Diallo (Manchester City), Tariq Uwakwe (Chelsea), Ronaldo Vieira (Leeds United), Andre Dozzell (Ipswich Town)

Forwards: Elliot Embleton (Sunderland), Daniel Kemp (West Ham United), Luke Bolton (Manchester City), George Hirst (Sheffield Wednesday), Martell Taylor-Crossdale (Chelsea), Ike Ugbo (Chelsea)
