Tottenham Hotspur trio Oliver Skipp, Djed Spence and Ryan Sessegnon have all been called up for selection by Lee Carsley in his latest England Under 21 squad.

The Young Lions are set to face Italy and Germany later this month to match the fixtures of Gareth Southgate’s senior side.

On Thursday 22 September the U21s will play their Italian counterparts at the Stadio Adriatico, home of Serie C side Pescara, with kick-off at 4.30pm while the Germany fixture takes place on Tuesday 27 September at Sheffield United’s Bramall Lane, with kick-off at 7.45pm.

Skipp has recently returned to fitness following a foot injury sustained during pre-season and is yet to feature so far this season (transfermarkt).  Spence, who joined from Middlesbrough in the summer has had to settle for a one-minute cameo at Nottingham Forest, where he spent last season on loan.

Sessegnon has seen the most action out of the three, with the 22-year-old having featured in five of Tottenham’s opening six Premier League fixtures.
