It might be time for a break for a number of Manchester United's Academy players but some of them will be on international duty as the summer approaches.

Anthony Elanga has been called into the Sweden Under-21 squad for the first time after his impressive breakthrough into senior football. After making his debut against Leicester City, he scored in the win at Wolves and has travelled to Poland with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's squad for the Europa League final against Villarreal.

Coach Poya Asbaghi's side will take on Finland on 3 June and Luxembourg five days later.

Charlie McNeill has received a first England Under-19s call-up after a prolific season.

England's Under-19s have a five-day training camp next week at St George's Park with Will Fish and Joe Hugill, regular performers for our Under-23s this season, named in the original 28-man squad.

Youth-team striker Charlie McNeill, the leading goalscorer at Under-18s level throughout the country, has also been promoted to link up with the group ahead of the qualifying for the European finals in 2022, which gets under way in November.

Norway Under-18s have included Isak Hansen in their squad for a stint in Portugal - the midfielder ended the season well and made his Premier League 2 debut for Neil Wood's side.

Young keeper Dermot Mee is in Northern Ireland Under-21s' plans for friendly games against Scotland, while Marc Jurado and Alejandro Garnacho will spend time with Spain Under-17s.
