Patrick Roberts has won his first call-up to the England Under 19 squad for next month’s friendly against Germany.

The Fulham midfielder, who helped the England Under 17s win the European Championships earlier this year, has been included by Under 19s manager John Peacock in his squad for the trip to east German city of Oberhausen for this testing fixture on September 8th. Roberts, who has been watched by a number of leading English and European sides, made his Fulham first-team debut as a substitute at Manchester City last season and has appeared in all four Championship fixtures this season.

The 17 year-old was an unused substitute in Fulham’s 1-0 win at Brentford in the Capital One Cup second round last night.
