FOURTEEN Manchester City-owned players called up by England across five age groups

Manchester City have had an incredible FOURTEEN players called up across five age groups, ranging from the under-18s side to the senior set-up.

In the senior squad, John Stones, Kyle Walker, Raheem Sterling and on-loan Joe Hart have been summoned for the friendlies against the Netherlands and Italy. There is no place for Fabian Delph in Gareth Southgate’s latest squad, with an injury keeping him out.

And as City’s youth ranks continue to swell with some of the world’s finest young talent, ten young Englishmen have been called up across the four main age groups.

Jack Harrison, signed from New York City FC in January and loaned to Middlesbrough, and on-loan goalkeeper Angus Gunn, who was tipped for a senior call-up, have been selected for the England under-21 squad who face Romania in a friendly and the Euro qualifier against Ukraine.

Isaac Buckley-Ricketts, loaned to Oxford United in January, and Lukas Nmecha, who won his first first-team minutes for City this season, are in the under-20 side to face Poland and Portugal – the latter fixture to take place at Manchester City’s Academy Stadium.

Phil Foden is the eye-catching name in the England under-19 squad having moved up a level. He and Edward Francis have been summoned for fixtures against Hungary, Latvia and Macedonia this month.

England’s under-18s have a busy month with games against Qatar, Argentina and Belarus, and four City starlets have been selected – Curtis Anderson, Joel Latibeaudiere, Felix Nmecha and Ian Carlo Poveda.

The full list of the fourteen City call-ups is as follows:

U18s: Curtis Anderson, Joel Latibeaudiere, Felix Nmecha, Ian Carlo Poveda
U19s: Edward Francis, Phil Foden
U20s: Isaac Buckley-Ricketts, Lukas Nmecha
U21s: Angus Gunn, Jack Harrison
England: Joe Hart, John Stones, Kyle Walker, Raheem Sterling
