    The game is live on Eurosport for those interested

    Gomes is out injured ( bit of a blow despite being a rag ) so expect a replacement called up soon.

    Huge blow if true.

    Arguably the best midfielder of the lot.

    3 seems a bit low with the success we've been having.

    @twosips have we many with other squads?

    The main omissions for us are Poveda and Latibeaudiere.

    The latter is injured and Poveda has hardly played for City from what I recall.

    Yes, it is a blow and Yeah it is true, he tweeted as soon as the squad was announced that he can't play as he's injured.

    Him and Latibeaudiere are massive misses for us and with them included I would have had us one of the favourites to win the competition.

    Gomes ticks the team over.

    I think we would definitely have been favourites with those two but it's still a very talented squad and plenty of strength in depth. I team at this level with a front four of Hudson-Odoi, Foden, Sancho and Brewster is pretty deadly. Maybe Gibbs-White ( If Wolves release him ) or Skipp will replace Gomes but will have to wait and see. This squad could have been even stronger if Ryan Sessegnon wasn't fast tracked to the U19's.

    I always thought England kept the youth lads strictly to their own age groups, surprising. A bit of a sea change or have I missed others?

    I agree.

    I think if we do well in this tournaments it's because our attack looks good.

    Odoi was a beast in the FA Youth Cup.
