England U21 squad named but no Welbeck or Jones

Stuart Pearce today named his England U21 squad for upcoming European Championship qualifiers against Iceland and Belgium.

The Young Lions will prepare to face Iceland in Group 8 at the Weston Homes Community Stadium in Colchester on November 10th and will play against Belgium away four days later but will have to do so without Manchester United duo Danny Welbeck and Phil Jones who were not selected.

Crystal Palace's Nathaniel Clyne, Brighton's Lewis Dunk, Barnsley's Jacob Butterfield, Tottenham's Tom Carroll and Middlesbrough's Alex Nimely will all get their chance to make their debut later this month.
