Tuesday test for Nouble

Frank Nouble will hope to lead the line for England tonight when they play an Under-19 friendly away to the Netherlands in Waalwijk.

The striker, on loan at West Bromwich Albion, is looking to impress to ensure his place in coach Noel Blake's plans for the Elite round qualification mini-tournament in Ukraine this May. There, England will be bidding to win a four-nation section to book their place at the summer finals of the UEFA European U19 Championship.

"It's always nice to get together with the squad," Blake told TheFA.com about tonight's match. "We'll be looking to keep improving again. It's a great opportunity for the players involved to put in a performance to say to me, and all the staff, that they want to be involved in the Elite Round squad in a few months.

"The only way to make an impression is with their performances. Some of them have come in and done well in the past, and the opportunity is there for more of them to do that this time.

"We often play games against the Dutch right from the U16s upwards and they're always technically good and it will be a very good test for us, no question. That's why we play these games, we all want a challenge and we all want testing."
