England u19 will play an international friendly in Italy to prepare for the u19 Elite Round in April 2016. Mo Marley has selected an 18 players squad for the trip, including four from Arsenal.
The game is to be played at the Stadio Comunale ‘Bruno Brunelli’ in Montepulciano on Wednesday 4th November and four Arsenal players are included with last season’s captain Leah Williamson now a senior player in this age group.
Williamson is a first team regular, while Evie Clarke and Chloe Kelly have both made first team apperances. Sian Rogers – who signed from Birmingham in the summer – has yet to play a first team game but is highly rated by club and country.
