Head coach Rehanne Skinner has named her England squad for the final round of UEFA Women’s U-19 Championship qualifiers, reports TheFA.com.

The Young Lionesses will take on Israel (on Tuesday 3 April), host nation Slovakia (Friday 6 April) and Germany (Monday 9 April), with the top-placed nation in the group making it through to the finals in July.

Seventeen of the squad helped England pick up victories over Czech Republic and France in La Manga earlier this month with Grace Smith, Aimee Palmer and Jessie Jones added to the group.

This year’s finals will take place in Switzerland.
