The UEFA Under-19 Championships gets underway in France on Sunday and three Arsenal players will be vying for youth international glory.
 
Thomas Cruise is in the England squad while French duo Gilles Sunu and Francis Coquelin will be representing the home nation. Seventeen-year-old midfielder Oguzhan Ozyakup is on the Netherlands' stand-by list.
 
Eight nations will be taking part in the competition, which is split into two groups with the winner and runner-up in each progressing to the Semi-Final.

France and England are both in Group A along with the Netherlands and Austria.
 
The top three finishers in each group will also qualify for the FIFA Under-20 World Cup 2011, which will be played in Colombia.
