England v Italy: U17 International
England are one of the favourites for the FIFA U-17 World Cup

The FIFA U-17 World Cup is just around the corner with India ready to host a footballing event of such magnitude for the first time. England are one of the teams to arrive in the country soon and are considered as one of the favourites for the World Cup. The Young Lions reached the final of the U-17 Euros in May and have been producing promising results one after the other. 

The youngsters under Steve Cooper have done tremendously well and will be hoping to establish themselves as the future stars of the game in the country's third ever participation in the tournament. England's squad features some exciting talents which are set to take the Premier League by storm in the coming years. Here is a list which features five English U-17 players who have previously featured or are now a part of a first team squad in the Premier League: 

#5 Josef Bursik (Stoke City) 

England's goalkeeper Josef Bursik joined the Potters in July from AFC Wimbledon. The 16-year-old is a highly rated custodian and is considered as one for the future at the Bet365 Stadium when Jack Butland eventually moves to a bigger club. 

Bursik is a brilliant shot stopper with Mark Hughes ready to use him as the club's third choice goalkeeper in the current season as the league progresses.
