20 May 24

Newcastle United youngster Leo Shahar has been named in the England Under-17s squad for the 2024 European Championship finals this month.

The Young Lions sealed their place at the finals in Cyprus after finishing runners-up in Group 1 of the Elite Round qualifiers, with Shahar starting all three group matches against Northern Ireland, Hungary and France.

Greg Lincoln's side face France, Portugal and Spain in Group D, with the top two countries from the respective four groups progressing into the quarter-finals.

Shahar, who currently has seven caps at that level, joined Newcastle United from Wolverhampton Wanderers last summer following a ten-year spell with his boyhood club.

Primarily a right-back but capable of playing in midfield, Shahar made his debut for Newcastle at under-21 level during an EFL Trophy clash against League Two side Crewe Alexandra in November 2023 and has made 13 competitive outings for United's second-string this term.

England Under-17 squad:

Goalkeepers: Spike Brits (Manchester City), Douglass Lukjanciks (Everton), Oliver Whatmuff (Manchester City)

Defenders: Harry Amass (Manchester United), Samuel Amissah (Fulham), Jaden Dixon (Stoke City), Christian McFarlane (New York City), Stephen Mfuni (Manchester City), Kian Noble (Manchester City), Leo Shahar (Newcastle United)
