Arsenal forwards Eddie Nketiah, Reiss Nelson and Joe Willock have all been picked by England Under-19s.

The talented trio who all played a part in Arsene Wenger’s side in the 0-0 draw against Red Star Belgrade on Thursday night as they qualified for the knockout stages of the Europa League.

The highly-rated Nketiah made the headlines for grabbing two goals against Norwich City in the Carbao Cup fourth round at the Emirates last month with the call-ups representing further progress for all the talented starlets after their impressive performances this season.

Josh Dasilva and Stephy Mavididi have also been called up by England, this time by Keith Downing for the England Under-20 squad, who face Germany on November 14.

In addition Arthur Okonkwo and Vontae Daley-Campbell have been called up for the England Under-17 squad, who are set to play Portugal, Russia and Germany.
