Walsall's Rico Henry called up to England under-19 squad

Walsall | Sport | Published:

Walsall left-back Rico Henry has been called up to the England under-19 squad.

The 18-year-old has been a regular for the Saddlers this season and has been rewarded for his excellent form with international recognition.

Henry has been called-up after Chelsea's Jake Clarke-Salter withdrew through injury and will now link up with Aidy Boothroyd's squad, ahead of fixtures against the Netherlands on Thursday and Japan on Sunday, the latter of which takes place at Manchester City's Academy Stadium.

A product of the Saddlers youth system, Henry made his first-team debut last season.

This year, he has scored two goals in 16 appearances and won League One player of the month in September.

Last month Henry, who is reported to have been scouted by Arsenal, signed a new deal which will keep him at the Banks's to the summer of 2018.
