Arsenal teenagers Daniel Oyegoke and Zane Monlouis have been called up to the England u19 squad for a training camp ahead of the u19 Euro campaign.
England Football confirmed on Friday that they’ll be holding a training camp at St. George’s Park over the next week. Arsenal youngsters Zane Monlouis and Daniel Oyegoke have both received their first call-ups at that level.
The camp starts on Sunday, 23rd May and runs until Thursday, 27th May. It’s the first step in integrating the group ahead of the u19 Euro 2022 campaign, which begins with the qualification stage in November.
17-year-old Monlouis operates primarily as a centre-back, and he’s been playing pretty regular u23 football this season despite the fact he’ll still be eligible for the u18s even in 2021/22.
Monlouis has previously played for the England u17s, including winning the Syrenka Cup in 2019. But it looks like he’ll skip over the England u18s straight to the u19s for the upcoming training camp.
Oyegoke is a year older, at 18, and he featured for the England u18s over the most recent international break. He clearly impressed sufficiently to earn the step up now.
Also a defender, Oyegoke has primarily featured for the u23s this season, splitting his time between centre-back and the full-back positions.
