Barnet winger Keanu Marsh-Brown has been called up to the England C squad for their friendly against Czech Republic Under-21s later this month.
The 21-year-old has been in fine form for the Bees this season and has netted seven goals in his 16 appearances.
His form has been rewarded with a second call up to the side, who are managed by Paul Fairclough.
Speaking to TheFA.com, 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 Under-21s 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.”
The game will take place on Tuesday, November 19 at Woking's Kingfield Stadium. Kick-off is at 6pm and Fairclough hopes to have a big crowd in attendance.
“This will be the second occasion I have been fortunate to lead the side at Woking,” he added.
“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."
