Southampton youngster Jake Vokins will join England Under-17s for the Algarve Tournament in Portugal next month.

The 16-year-old left back has been called up to the England set-up for the competition that will run from the 5th to the 15th of February.

In that time the England youth side will play fixtures against Germany, Portugal and Netherlands.

This will be Vokins’ second call up for the national side, having previously represented England Under-15s.

“It means a lot, obviously,” said Vokins.

“I’ve had continuous support from the club to get to this point, so hopefully I can just keep going.

“They always give me opportunities and I’d like to think that I am taking those and moving forward. This is another step for me.”
