Benik Afobe has been called up to the England squad for the Under-20 World Cup to be held in Colombia between July 29 and August 20.

The pacy frontman enjoyed a hugely-successful loan with Huddersfield Town last season and helped Lee Clark’s side reach the League One Play-Off Final with eight goals in 36 appearances.

England begin their campaign on July 31 against Korea DPR in Medellin. They then meet Argentina at the same venue on August 1 and finish their Group F fixtures on August 4 against Mexico.
