Arsenal Youth report that the England u19s have scheduled a friendly against the Arsenal u23s on Saturday, 27th March. Gunners youngster Miguel Azeez is among the u19 squad currently taking part in a training camp at St. George’s Park.

Earlier reports suggested they’d play the Arsenal u18s, which would have been a little odd. The team already have a competitive league game away to Reading that same day, so it makes much more sense for them to face the u23s.

There’s no u23 fixture this weekend, so that won’t be an issue.

The two teams will have to play Saturday’s fixtures without Miguel Azeez, who they’ve lost to the England u19s, and Hubert Graczyk and Daniel Oyegoke, who are with the England u18s over the break. We’ll see how the two matches play out on Saturday.
