Aidy Boothroyd today named his England Under-20s squad to take on Mexico next week at The Hive!
And ahead of the game, Boothroyd has named a squad brimming with talent including the likes of Arsenal’s Chuba Akpom – who visited The Hive last week as part of the Together For England Roadshow – as well as numerous other first team stars from England’s top three divisions.
"Both USA and Mexico will be competing in the FIFA U20 World Cup in New Zealand, and both fixtures promise to be challenging encounters for us. Each challenge will require maximum concentration and discipline from every player. Another invaluable lesson for them in their future careers."
"Our opponents this March have been carefully selected as we continue to provide the players with a full and varied development programme.
"We are now looking forward to building on that momentum with the double-header against USA and Mexico.
"It has been four months since we were last together and after an excellent start to a new team’s campaign we are now finding our players dotted around the Football League and Premier League, which will only add to their experience when they play for England.
