Jack O'Connell and Raheem Hanley will both earn their 2nd caps at Under-19 level later today.

England play their final group match in their UEFA qualifiers against the Ukraine this afternoon knowing that if they avoid defeat they'll progress through to the next stage of the competition.

O'Connell and Hanley both played in the Under-19s opening match in Tallin, a game in which they defeated Estonia 3-0, but they were unused substitutes as the Faroe Islands were swept aside 6-0 in match two, but they have returned to Noel Blake's starting eleven for the final game.

Ukraine also one their group matches against Estonia and the Faroes, but with England having score one more goal against Estonia, they top the group and have the upper hand going into the game in Tallin.
