The Great Britain squad has been announced for the forthcoming under 19s international which will see the Lions travel to Italy. The game will see a full travelling squad of 45 making the trip to Milan on April 8 and hopes are high that the development of the team will continue.

Head Coach Scott Rowe said: ‘We have selected a great group of young men to head out to Milan to take on a very strong Team Italy. Huge credit must go to the players, coaches, and staff for their hard work and dedication over the last four months or so which is effectively how long we have had to prepare for this tough game. We will go in as underdogs but I am incredibly proud to be the Head Coach of this team’’

“After the progress, we made in 2022 this game is another important step for us to continue building the U19 program. It’s so important that we prioritise U19 and U16 football as these young players are the future of our game and they deserve to have a program to aspire to and one which can compete with the very best in Europe.”
