Man City winger Henshall excited facing Barcelona in NextGen clash
The 17-year-old second-year scholar at the Blues' renowned Academy is thrilled at the prospect of facing Celtic, Marseille and the European champions.
Winger Henshall, capped 21 times for England at Under-16 and Under-17 level, told City's website: "When I heard about the NextGen it sounded exciting but I didn't think I'd be included in the squad.
"Playing against the biggest teams in the world should help make you a good player. I've got 21 caps so far for England, and I think that will stand me in good stead for this tournament."
