Nathaniel Chalobah
The Watford mifeidler was capped a total of 97 times for England youth and Under-21 teams, and was part of the side that won the 2010 UEFA European Under-17 Championship in Liechtenstein, also reaching the semi-final a year later in Serbia. "Some of the biggest names in world football today have all played in the Championship previously," he said. "I remember when I played back in Liechtenstein 2010 and France had Paul Pogba in their side and Gerard Deulofeu was playing for Spain. And then in Serbia 2011, France had Kurt Zouma and the Netherlands had Memphis Depay while Raheem Sterling, Jordan Pickford and Nathan Redmond were in our squad."
