Reece Brown and Demarai Gray

Reece Brown and Demarai Gray have been called up to the England U18s squad for their forthcoming international fixtures against Belgium and Croatia.

England host Croatia on Monday 2 March (7.30pm kick-off) at a venue still to be confirmed, before playing the same opposition two days later on Wednesday 4 March at St. George’s Park (2pm kick-off).

Prior to the Croatia double-header, England U18s are in action against Belgium at St. George’s Park on Tuesday 18 February (2pm kick-off) and both players have also been included in that squad.

Brown has previously represented England at both U16 and U17 levels, but not the U18s age group. It is a first call-up at any international level for Gray.

The full England U19s squad for the Croatia games is:
Goalkeepers: Ted Smith (Southend United), Charlie Grainger (Leyton Orient).

Defenders: Kyle Knoyle (West Ham United), Reece Burke (West Ham United), Brendan Galloway (MK Dons), Ashley Smith-Brown (Manchester City), Ben Chilwell (Leicester City).
