England Under-20s will hope to get their World Cup campaign off to the best possible start when they face Argentina on Saturday.

Boro youngsters Dael Fry and Harry Chapman are among the Young Lions to have travelled to South Korea to contest the 24-team tournament.

Paul Simpson’s side face Argentina in Jeonju on Saturday (kick-off 8:30, 16:30 local time) before matches against Guinea (23/5) and hosts South Korea (26/5) in Group A next week.

Fry was loaned out to Rotherham United for the first half of the season, with the second half of his campaign spent between Boro’s Under-23s and senior side.

Chapman enjoyed a successful stint at League One title-winners Sheffield United, winning his second promotion from the third tier in two years. Following a prominent role in the first half of the season, the winger recovered from a troublesome ankle injury to feature in the Blades’ final games of the season.
