Nathan Delfouneso and Nathan Baker have been named in the England squad for the European U19 Championship Finals in France.

The England team will be out for revenge after suffering a loss to the Ukraine in last years Finals, and Delfouneso will certainly have his sights on securing the Golden Boot award at the 2009 tournament.

Delboy also holds the title as the most experienced members of the Young Lions having found the net 9 times in 21 appearances for them.

Baker is no stranger to the squad either, already having achieved 6 caps at that level and is fresh following his first team experience at Lincoln City last season.

England kick off their Group A campaign against Austria on July 18, before facing the Netherlands and France.

Group B is made up of Spain, Portugal, Italy and Croatia.

The two teams in both groups go on to the semi finals on July 27, with the Final taking place in Caen on July 30.

As an added bonus, the top 6 teams in the tournament will become Europe’s representatives at next years FIFA U20 World Cup in Columbia.
