  • Internationals: Joe Gelhardt and Jensen Weir called up by England.

Wigan Athletic duo Joe Gelhardt and Jensen Weir have been called up for England U17's February fixtures against France and Hungary, set to take place in Spain later this week.

The pair featured for the first team from the bench in the Carabao Cup against Rotherham United earlier this season, with Weir Latics' youngest ever player to feature in a first team fixture during last season's Checkatrade Trophy campaign.

Gelhardt, who has scored six goals in his eight appearances for England so far, has netted 12 times for Latics' U18s so far this season and once for the Development Squad.

Weir, who continues to be a driving force in Latics' U18 midfield, has featured four times for England since his debut back in September.

England's Under 17s face France on Thursday 7 February at 2.00pm, before taking on Hungary on Sunday 10 February at 12.00pm.
