Liverpool defender Jack Robinson has been handed a place in the England Under-21 squad ahead of their two-legged European Championships play-off tie against Serbia.

The 19-year-old started in the Reds' recent 3-2 home defeat to Udinese in the Europa League and gave an assured performance against experienced opposition.

The first leg of the tie, which will decide whether England feature at next summer's tournament in Israel, will take place at Carrow Road on Friday with the second leg being played the following Tuesday.
