Josh Griffiths and Conor Gallagher

Conor Gallagher and Josh Griffiths have been called up to the England Under-21s squad for this month’s UEFA European U21 Championship group stages in Slovenia & Hungary.

The Young Lions take on Switzerland, Portugal and Croatia in Group D of the rescheduled competition as they aim to secure a spot in the knockout rounds, which will take place in the summer.

Gallagher featured in five of England’s qualifiers for the tournament - helping them to wins against Austria, Albania (2), Kosovo and Andorra. The midfielder has experienced success away with his country before having been part of the Under-17 World Cup winning team in 2017.

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Griffiths will be joining Aidy Boothroyd’s Under-21s for the first time following a fantastic season so far on loan at Sky Bet League Two leaders Cheltenham Town.

He’s kept 18 clean sheets from 39 appearances in all competitions, earning rave reviews from manager Michael Duff.

Good luck, lads!
