Keeper called up for U19 tournament.
Sunderland keeper Jordan Pickford has been named in the England U19 squad for the forthcoming Euro Elite Qualifying Round.
The stopper, who is a regular for his country, is part of an 18-man squad for the tournament, which will take place in Belgium between 24-29 May.
England will face Georgia in their opening game before a clash with the host Belgians precedes a meeting with old rivals Scotland.
Noel Blake’s side head into the tournament on the back of three successive victories as they look to secure a place at July’s European Championship Finals in Lithuania.
Pickford, 19, has recently returned from a two-month loan spell at Conference Premier side Alfreton, where he made 12 appearances.
He also made 12 appearances for the club’s under-21 side in 2012-13.
