Norwich City winger Josh Murphy has been named in the England Under-19 squad looking to earn qualification to July’s European Championships in Hungary.
Noel Blake’s side face Montenegro, Scotland and Ukraine in three decisive qualifiers to be played at Walsall’s Bescot Stadium and Burton’s Pirelli Stadium at the end of this month.
Blake has selected a strong provisional squad of 23, which will be cut to 18 following a training camp.
Murphy – whose nine Premier League appearances this season have all come from the subs’ bench – will be joined by Manchester United striker James Wilson, who scored twice on his senior debut in Tuesday night’s 3-1 home win over Hull City.
