England U19s Head Coach Noel Blake has selected his first squad for the new season, as the Young Lions travel to Germany for what should be a stern test ahead of October's First Qualifying Round for the 2013 European Championship.

Blake, who took last season's U19 group to the semi-final of the Euro Finals in Estonia, has plenty of international youth experience at his disposal too, with four players from the squad who were in July's roll-call able to play again for the U19s this season.

The Squad:

Goalkeepers: Jordan Pickford (Sunderland), Jonathan Sutherland (Manchester United).

Defenders: Tyler Blackett (Manchester United). Eric Dier (Sporting Lisbon), Adam Jackson (Middlesbrough), Daniel Potts (West Ham United), John Stones (Barnsley).

Midfielders: Nathaniel Chalobah (Chelsea), George Evans (Manchester City)* James Ward-Prowse (Southampton), Nick Powell (Manchester United), Nathan Redmond (Birmingham City),

Forwards: Chuba Akpom (Arsenal), Jack Barmby (Manchester United), Max Clayton (Crewe Alexandra), Adam Morgan (Liverpool), Raheem Sterling (Liverpool), Blair Turgott (West Ham United).

* Replaces John Lundstram (Everton), withdrawn by club.
