Confirmed England Under-21 line-up vs Norway: Alli and Dier start

Three Lions Wembley

The young Lions face Norway in their first qualifier for the 2017 Under-21 European Championships with Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton players on show.

England Under-21s: Pickford, Gomez, Targett, Loftus-Cheek, Chambers, Dier, Ibe, Ward-Prowse (c), Woodrow, Alli, Redmond

Substitutes: Wilson, Gunn, Watmore, Stephens, Chalobah, Forster-Caskey, March

England kick off their European Championship qualifying campaign in Norway tonight (K.O 17:45 BST) in what is sure to be a tricky encounter.

Norway triumphed over Bosnia-Herzegovina in their first outing and will have been buoyed by their performance.

England, on the other hand, will be looking to bounce back after a disappointing showing at this year's Euro's in the Czech Republic.

Gareth Southgate's men failed to make it out of the group stages, finishing bottom of their group after a win and two defeats.

A number of key stars failed to deliver on the big stage and Southgate will be hoping for a new-found drive from his new-look squad.

Tottenham player Eric Dier is back in the Under-21 frame after missing out on the Euros and his team-mate, the exciting Dele Alli has also made the squad, appearing at under-21 level for the first time.

Meanwhile, Chelsea youngster Ruben Loftus-Cheek will be hoping to impress Jose Mourinho in light of Chelsea's recent sticky spell.
