Five Southampton players have been named in an initial England under-21 squad for the European Championships in Poland.

James Ward-Prowse, Nathan Redmond, Jack Stephens, Matt Targett and Sam McQueen will all meet up for their preparation camp ahead of the tournament.

Ward-Prowse and Redmond both made their senior bows in March during the 1-0 defeat to Germany.

But the duo will be hoping to finish their under-21 careers in style in a tournament which starts with an opening clash against Sweden on Friday 16th June (5pm BST).

Aidy Boothroyd’s men will then face Slovakia on Monday 19th June (5pm BST) and Poland on Thursday 22nd June (7.45pm BST).
