Stuart Pearce has named his England U21 squad for upcoming friendlies with Romania and Austria ahead of the summer's European Championships.

Pearce has recalled Aston Villa striker Nathan Delfouneso, on loan at Blackpool, and Bolton's Marvin Sordell whilst Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland (still with Birmingham City) drops down from the senior side.
