Nathan Trott has been named in England’s squad for the 2019 Maurice Ravello Toulon Tournament in France.

The West Ham United goalkeeper is part of Paul Simpson’s selection for the prestigious annual competition for national teams with players aged 21 and under, which will be held in the south of France next month.

Trott, who has been capped six times at that level since making his debut against the Netherlands in August 2017, was a regular starter for the Hammers in Premier League 2 and the Checkatrade Trophy this season, while he also trained with the first-team goalkeepers on a regular basis.

England, who won the Toulon Tournament a year ago, kick-off their challenge for an eighth title on Saturday 1 June, when they take on Japan in Aubagne.

After tackling Portugal in Salon-de-Provence on Tuesday 4 June, Chile will form the Young Lions’ third Group A opponents in Fos-sur-Mer on Friday 7 June.

The four group winners will contest the semi-finals on Wednesday 12 June, with the final taking place in Salon-de-Provence on Saturday 15 June. Playoff matches will also be held for the minor placings.

The tournament will be broadcast live in the UK by Free Sports on Freeview channel 64, Sky Sports channel 422, Virgin Media channel 553, Freesat channel 252, BT TV channel 64, TalkTalk TV channel 64.
