U21 Trio Chosen For Israel Trip

Jordan Henderson, Jonjo Shelvey and Andre Wisdom have been selected by Stuart Pearce to represent England U21s at the European Championship in Israel this summer.

The trio, regular members of the Three Lions outfit, will travel to the eight-team tournament next month and their opening fixture will see England take on Italy on June 5.

Pearce's side - who included Henderson when eliminated during the first round at the 2011 edition - will meet Norway three days later and round off their Group A campaign against the event hosts Israel on June 11.

Group B features Germany, Netherlands, Russia and holders Spain; the top two teams in each section will progress to the semi-finals.
