Norwich City’s promising young winger, Josh Murphy has been called up to the England U19 squad which is looking to qualify for the European Championships in Hungary, this July.

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 May.

At the moment, Murphy is one of 23 named players with a cut to 18 occurring after the training camp.

Goalkeepers: Mitchell Beeney (Chelsea), Christian Walton (Brighton & Hove Albion)

Defenders: Ola Aina (Chelsea), Dominic Ball (Tottenham Hotspur), Calum Chambers (Southampton), Shay Facey (Manchester City), Brendan Galloway (MK Dons), Lloyd Jones (Liverpool), Matthew Targett (Southampton)

Midfielders: Lewis Baker (Chelsea), Isaac Hayden (Arsenal), Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Chelsea), Ben Pearson (Manchester United), Diego Poyet (Charlton Athletic), Harrison Reed (Southampton), John Swift (Chelsea)

Forwards: Chuba Akpom (Arsenal), Devante Cole (Manchester City), Sam Gallagher (Southampton), Jordon Ibe (Liverpool), Josh Murphy (Norwich City), Callum Robinson (Aston Villa), James Wilson (Manchester United).

Assuming that Josh knuckles down and does what he needs to in training, he looks a good shout for the final 18.

All the best lad.
