Dunn and Toljan join England and Germany

Raheem Sterling has been replaced in the England squad by Liverpool FC team-mate Jack Dunn, while Germany have added defender Jeremy Toljan to their party in place of Levent Aycicek.

Germany and England have altered their squads ahead of Thursday's UEFA European Under-17 Championship semi-finals, adding Jeremy Toljan and Jack Dunn respectively.

England's Raheem Sterling flew home on Sunday because of an ankle injury and has been replaced by Liverpool FC club-mate Dunn. The midfielder goes straight into the defending champions' squad to face the Netherlands in Novi Sad at 11.30CET on Thursday. "I'm pleased Jack Dunn's joined up," England manager John Peacock told UEFA.com. "He took part in the Algarve tournament in February and he's been in and around the standby squad most of the year and it will be extremely good experience for him. "

Germany, meanwhile, have released Levent Aycicek after the playmaker missed Monday's victory over Romania with an injury picked up late in the Matchday 2 draw against the Czech Republic. In his place comes VfB Stuttgart defender Jeremy Toljan.

Coach Steffen Freund is without full-back Mitchell Weiser, centre-half Nico Perrey, winger Fabian Schnellhardt and top scorer Samed Yesil through suspension for their semi-final against Denmark at 16.30CET. As a result, reserve goalkeeper Cedric Wilmes has been registered as an outfield player with shirt No7.

Teams in the U17 finals may replace two injured outfield players as per article 17.15 of the official regulations.
