Herbie Kane has been called up to the latest England U18s squad for their two friendlies against South Korea in June. Kane, 17, has been a regular for Neil Critchley’s Liverpool U18s, scoring four goals including the first in the Reds 2-2 draw with Chelsea last month.
The midfielder has been rewarded with his recent performances with a call-up to Neil Dewsnip’s 18-man squad for the games at the Icheon City Stadium on 3 June and 5 June.
The midfielder made his debut for England U18s in March 2016, coming on as a 65th minute substitute in their 3-2 win over Austria.
He then made his debut four days later, featuring for the full 90 minutes in the Young Lions’ 4-1 win over Ireland. Overall, Kane has made 3 three appearances under Dewsnip.
Prior to his call-up to the U18s, the former Bristol City youngster made five appearances for the U16s, and then 15 appearances for the U17s, so does have international experience.
Kane has been part of a Liverpool side in the UEFA Youth League, Europe’s most prestigious youth competition and has experience at the U17 World Cup with England.
His call-up rounds off a good season for the midfielder, who will be looking to push onto the Reds’ U21 setup next season.
