Some of Sunderland's first-team and academy players have been called up to play for their countries ahead of this month's international break.

Sunderland goalkeeper Matty Young has been named in England's under-18s squad ahead of three matches in Spain this month.

The Young Lions will play Czechia, Germany and the Netherlands over six days as part of the U18 Pinatar Super Cup, starting on Wednesday, March 20. Young has trained with Sunderland's first team this season, after being part of the club's US pre-season tour last summer, and was loaned out to National League North club Darlington last month.
