Dean Henderson and Kieron Dowell have both been named the England U21 squad for two forthcoming home friendlies.

The Premier League loanees have been selected by Aidy Boothroyd for the double header against Poland and U21 Euro champions Germany, with the games to be played at Bristol City's Ashton Gate and the Bournemouth's Vitality Stadium respectively.

The fixtures which will take place on Thursday 21st March and Tuesday 26th March, are part of the Young Lions preparation for the Euro Finals in Italy and San Marino later this year, where England are in Group C alongside France, Romania and Croatia.

The call-ups of Henderson and Dowell follow Tuesday's announcement that John Fleck and Conor Washington would be linking up with their countries later this month.

Meanwhile, Enda Stevens, John Egan, David McGoldrick and Scott Hogan are in the provisional Republic of Ireland squad for their qualifiers against Gibraltar and Georgia.
