The two forwards have been in fine form for the Aston Villa academy and reserve sides this year, with Delfouneso now having been handed a first team squad number, and has been included in travelling squads to ‘get a feel’ for what it’s like to be a first team player.

The U-17 squad travel to Israel (strange place for a European tournament) to face the host nation, France and Russia, with the winners of the group stage going through to the European Championship finals, this year held in the Eurasian state of Turkey.

Delfouneso and Forrester will lead the line tomorrow as the Villa youngsters look to fire their way past the Chelsea academy over two legs to reach the FA Youth Cup final for the first time in 4 years.
