Manchester United youngster Finley McAllister has been named in the England under-17s European Championships squad for this summer.

Finley McAllister is the sole Manchester United representative named in the squad for the finals. The squad also includes Ethan Nwaneri, who made his first team debut for Arsenal earlier this season.

The call-up comes as a boost for McAllister, who has missed several months of football this season with an injury, returning for the final few games of the under-18s season.

The 16-year-old midfielder made 11 appearances in total for the under-18s, providing one assist.

Finley McAllister called up by England

Finley McAllister already has six caps for England at under-17s level. He was capped three times for the under-16s.

He has been one to watch ever since he made his under-18s debut for Manchester United in 2021, when he was just 14, breaking a record previously held by Angel Gomes.
