HARRY Toffolo has been called up for England U19s as they head to Tallin to face Estonia.

The Young Lions are preparing for the First Qualifying Round of the 2014 European Championship, which takes place in Slovenia in October.

There, they will face the host nation, Andorra and Switzerland with the top two of that group progressing into the Elite Qualifying Round next year.

The former Welwyn Pegasus player, who also qualifies to play for Italy through his father Stefano, has been in sparkling form for Norwich City’s youth teams this season.

He was also part of Norwich City’s FA Youth Cup-winning side after they defeated Chelsea in a two-legged final.

England boss Noel Blake has named a squad featuring some new faces on the international scene along with players who have previously featured for England in recent years.

The Euro Finals take place in Hungary next July and with places in the 2015 U20 World Cup also up for grabs from this year’s competition, England will be keen to qualify.

The Squad:

Goalkeepers: Mitchell Beeney (Chelsea), Luke Coddington (Middlesbrough).

Defenders: Josh Aina (Chelsea), Leo Chambers (West Ham United), Harry Toffolo (Norwich City), Isaac Hayden (Arsenal), Jake Cooper (Reading).

Midfielders: Paul Digby (Barnsley), Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Chelsea) Jordon Ibe (Liverpool), Josh Murphy (Norwich City), Carlton Morris (Norwich City), Lewis Baker (Chelsea), Ben Pearson (Manchester United), Calum Chambers (Southampton).

Forwards: Adam Campbell (Newcastle United), Chuba Akpom (Arsenal), James Wilson (Manchester United).
