Solanke and Kelly in under-21s tournament squad


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

AFC Bournemouth duo Dominic Solanke and Lloyd Kelly have both been called up for the England under-21s' UEFA European under-21s Championship this summer.

The Cherries pair are with Aidy Boothroyd's squad at St. George's Park ahead of the tournament, which the Young Lions will seek to win in Italy and San Marino this summer.

Aaron Ramsdale is also on standby for the tournament after a remarkable season with AFC Wimbledon.

Striker Solanke already has a glittering international career, winning the 2014 European under-17 Championship, scoring the winner in the final and finishing as the tournament's joint-top scorer.

He also scored four goals and won the Golden Ball for the player of the tournament as he won the 2017 FIFA under-20s World Cup alongside Lewis Cook.

As a result, the 21-year-old was rewarded with a first senior cap against Brazil in 2017.

New recruit Kelly has also enjoyed international success, captaining the under-20s side and also breaking into the under-21s set up this season.
