England management are excited about the talent in their U17 squad.

The Daily Mail says they are starting to be regarded as something special. Their respective clubs are paying them extra attention since they qualified for the 2014 European Under 17 Championship by beating Republic of Ireland 6-0 in Armenia this week.

The goalscorers - Chelsea's Issy Brown, Newcastle United's Adam Armstrong, Everton's Ryan Ledson and Patrick Roberts of Fulham - are four of the most promising, along with another Chelsea representative in Dominic Solanke.
