Derby striker Mason Bennett has been named in the England Under-17 squad for next month's Algarve Tournament in Portugal.

Bennett will be part of John Peacock's 20-man squad to face the hosts, Germany and Holland.

England's matches take place between February 7-12, which means the 16-year-old will miss the Rams' Championship fixture at Sheffield Wednesday.

Bennett scored his first senior goal in Derby's 5-0 FA Cup third-round victory over Tranmere at the start of this month to become the club's youngest-ever scorer.
