Five Make England Development Squads

Last updated : 28 August 2021 By

Five Leeds United Academy players have been named in England's Development squads for the upcoming international break.

Charlie Cresswell has been named in Lee Carsley's first England U21s squad, after the coach was appointed last month.

England's U21s begin a new UEFA U21 EURO qualifying campaign in September, when they host Kosovo in Milton Keynes. 

Before that, they travel to Bucharest to play a match against Romania, who will be joint hosts of the next U21 EURO Finals with Georgia in 2023.

Elsewhere, Andy Edwards has named England's U20s squad, with four Leeds United players, Cody Drameh, Lewis Bate, Sam Greenwood and Joe Gelhardt, set for their fixture against Romania.

Drameh has previously joined up with the U20s, playing in last year's 2-0 win over Wales, whilst Bate, Greenwood and Gelhardt all make the step up from England's U18s side.
