Dean Rittenberg could be in action for England once more when the Under-18s face Croatia for the second time in two days.

The young Rover earned his second cap for the Three Lions on Monday afternoon, playing the last twenty minutes as England lost 2-1 to the Croats at St. George's Park.

Neil Dewsnip's side will be looking to bounce back from Monday's loss with an improved showing at Burton-on-Trent.

Also pulling on his country's shirt this evening will be Tim Payne. The midfielder is in Tokyo with New Zealand's senior squad for their friendly match against Japan.

If Payne plays, he'll earn his 9th cap for his country.

• Meanwhile, defender Mark Edgar was an unused substitute as Northern Ireland's Under-19s lost 3-0 at home to Switzerland on Tuesday afternoon. Edgar will be hoping to earn his first cap at that level on Thursday when the two sides meet again.
