City academy trio Denzeil Boadu, Cameron Humphries and Tosin Adarabioyo have been called up to the England u17s squad.
Denzeil and Cameron have been selected as part of the squad for the prestigious Nordic Tournament, which takes place between 5 and 10 August in Norway.
Manager Kenny Swain has been sufficiently impressed with the City pair to include them in the squad to face Norway, the Faroe Islands and Finland.
Striker Boadu signed on for City this summer, and caught the eye in the u18s recent preseason friendly victory over Radcliffe Borough. Humphries, still eligible for the u16s, will be hoping to continue his good form for the City academy sides with the Three Lions.
Tosin, an u18s regular in the centre of defence, has received the England nod for the u17s FA International Tournament, when the young Lions will face Italy, Portugal and Turkey at the Pirelli Stadium at the end of this month.
The youngster has already earned England experience with the u16s at the 2013 Montaigu tournament, and as part of the side that won the 2012 Victory Shield.
