Leicester City schoolboy Kyle Baliey will be eyeing success in the Faroe Islands this weekend, as part of the England Under-17 squad that have progressed to the final of this year’s Nordic Tournament.
The 15-year-old winger has been involved in all three of England’s group games so far this week, starting twice, as Kenny Swain’s Young Lions topped their group.
Swain’s starlets kicked off the week with a 2-0 win over the hosts on Monday, before strengthening their position in the group with a 4-2 win over Finland on Tuesday.
Those two results meant a goalless draw against a strong Norway team on Thursday was enough to take England through to Saturday’s final, where they will face the winner of the competition’s other group, which consists of Denmark, Sweden, Iceland and Faroe Islands U19s.
"We're consistently making plenty of changes in order to see everybody and make sure they all have some game-time, but the performances have been quite solid,” Swain told TheFA.com.
"All of the lads here have progressed this week and we've put oursleves into a position where we have a final now.
"They've coped very well indeed. The medical team work tirelessly in the background and all of the players are in a good state physically and mentally.
"We're just looking forward now to playing the final game."
Kyle, who attends Wreake Valley College in Syston, was one of three schoolboys from the City Academy to be called up for England duty this summer.
On Monday, Brandon Fox, also from Wreake Valley, and Keenan King, from Oadby Beauchamp College, will both report for the England Under-16s training camp at Warwick University.
