Jamal Musiala , Bayern Munich youngster, is at the core of the battle between England and Germany. He is also called up for the first time to the Three Lions' Under-21s side.

He has three team choicess through his British-Nigerian father and his German mother. However it is said that he is not fit for the Super Eagles in future.

The Stuttgart-born youngster is called up by the DFB to their Under-16s. At first, he had joined English youth teams then moved to Chelsea before playing for Munich.

Boothroyd said that he chose the young attacking midfielder because of his effectiveness the European champions this season.

“Jamal has been doing really well at Bayern Munich, getting a couple of starts and making a number of cameo appearances and when you’re involved in a team of Bayern Munich’s quality you have to take notice of that,” he added.

“We’ve been tracking him for quite a while and he has been in the system. I work very closely with not only Les Reed but John McDermott and Lee Carsley, as well as Gareth, in terms of when it is right for players to come into the squad.

“We think it’s the right time for Jamal to get into the U21s, so we can get a close look at him. He’s been playing really well, getting Champions League exposure and he is one of those players who has forced himself into our plans.”
