Mason Greenwood and Callum Hudson Odoy were selected for this month’s England Under 21 Championship campaign. The two players are included in the tournaments in Hungary and Slovenia as England aims to end the 37-year wait to win the trophy.
Manchester United’s Greenwood have scored only once in 23 league appearances this season, but Hudson Odoy is struggling for consistency under Chelsea’s new coach Thomas Tuchel. Capless goalkeeper Josh Griffiths, Arsenal’s Emile Smith Rowe and PSV Eindhoven’s Nonimaduke, rented from West Brom in Cheltenham, won their first call-up with Tottenham’s Jay Festanganga.
Despite the lack of action on Arsenal, Eddie Nketiah scored top score in qualifying with 13 goals to become a record scorer under the age of 21, with Everton duo Ben Godfrey and Tom Davies. Chosen with Davis, Bournemouth’s Aaron Ramsdale was Eddie Nketiah’s first-choice goalkeeper. England will launch a Group D campaign against Switzerland on March 25th in Koper.
Boothroid said: “This group is excited not only about their abilities, but also about their sense of unity and team spirit. They know they will do everything they can to be proud of their country.
“I am grateful to Gareth [Southgate] Thanks also to his support for what we are trying to achieve and to the club for recognizing the importance of these finals. We want to win every time we play and we do everything we can to reach the knockout stage, but this is also an important opportunity to provide valuable experience on and off the pitch. Useful for future players, clubs and England. “
England will also face Portugal in Ljubljana on March 28th and Croatia in Koper three days later. There will be knockout stages in May and June after the tournament has been split due to the coronavirus pandemic.
