Benik Afobe has been named in England Under-19s' 18-man squad for this summer's European Championship in Estonia.

The powerful striker helped Noel Blake's youngsters secure their place at the tournament finals in May as the Young Lions made it safely through the Elite Qualifying Round.

Afobe, who has made seven appearances for the Under-19s, is set to lead the line in Tallinn where England will face Serbia, Croatia and France in Group B. 

The Young Lions kick off their tournament against Croatia on July 3.
