The FA are arranging a series of high profile friendlies for the England U18 team.
Head coach Neil Dewsnip, above, is finalising plans for matches against Croatia, Belgium and Germany.
â€śWe looked around at what other countries do, the likes of Spain for example, and they regularly play matches at this age level,â€ť said Dewsnip, who is the technical lead for the 17 to 21 age group. â€śWe are hoping to line up some exciting games between now and the end of the season.â€ť
Liverpool duo Jerome Sinclair and Ryan Kent were included in Dewsnipâ€™s 22-man party for the training camp, while team-mate Cameron Brannagan was called up for the first time but was on the bench for his clubâ€™s FA Cup win over Oldham on Sunday.
