Hatters forward Andre Gray has been recalled to the England C squad for their match against Czech Republic U21s later month.

Gray, who has scored six goals this season, was named by Three Lions boss Paul Fairclough in his 18-man party for the clash that will take place at Woking on Tuesday, November 19, at 6pm.

Speaking to, Fairclough said: “The fixture against Czech Republic is yet another opportunity for our young internationals to experience European football at a high level.

“Their national football team is currently ranked 25 in the FIFA rankings and this fixture will feature the cream of the Czech Republic U21s so will expose our players to yet another style of play which can only enhance their experience.

“The squad selected is a hybrid of the players who featured in the last two internationals against Bermuda and Latvia, coupled with some fresh faces who have forced their way into consideration due to their good club form.”

Entry to the game at Woking FC’s Kingfield will be free for spectators and Fairclough is hoping to see a big crowd in attendance.

He added: “This will be the second occasion I have been fortunate to lead the side at Woking.

“I have fond memories of the last occasion, when a bumper crowd turned out to experience an emphatic victory against the Netherlands.

“The game with the Czechs promises to be a game for the purists with both teams being determined to get the ball down and play.”
