John Peacock has named the England U17 squad that will travel to Portugal next month to compete in the Algarve Tournament. England will take on France, Ukraine and the hosts over four days as they aim to put the finishing touches to their preparations for the Elite Round of the UEFA European U17 Championship, which kicks-off in March.

After gliding through the first stage of Euro qualifying with three wins from three, Peacock’s side now face Slovakia, Sweden and Malta for a place in the Finals this summer. The Elite Round will be staged in England between 27 March and 1 April.

There is one new name in the squad as Tottenham’s Harry Kane receives his first U17 call-up. The rest of the squad have been together since last season’s successful Victory Shield campaign.

Cheers Carly. I wonder how many of those names will make it to the dizzy heights of names such as Rooney, Gerrard and Terry?

John Coffie was at Burnley before Manc's signed him as a 14 year old.

he is an outstanding prospect, I was told by one of Burnley's coaches that if Coffie was still at Burnley he would have made it at least to the bench this season, he is that good.
