Rising star Connor Mahoney has been included in the England Under-17 squad for the forthcoming Algarve Tournament.

Taking place from February 22nd to March 2nd, England will face Netherlands, Portugal and Germany as preparation for the European Championship Elite Round qualifiers in Czech Republic later in March.

The Young Lions will play the Dutch at the Municipal Stadium in Lagos on Wednesday 26 February, and follow that up with a match against hosts Portugal on Friday 28 February at the Algarve Stadium.

England return to Lagos for their final match when they face Germany on Sunday 2 March.

Mahoney, who turned 17 on Wednesday, earned his first cap at Under-17s level in a friendly match against Belgium last month, playing the full game at St. George's Park as England drew 1-1.
