Black, who is in his first of two years on our Futsal programme at St Joseph’s College, will represent the Young Lions next month when they travel to the Dutch National Centre in Ziest for their two fixtures against the Netherlands on Friday 2 and Saturday 3 March.
Speaking about Black’s selection, Chelsea Foundation Futsal club secretary James Phillips said: ‘This is fantastic for the Futsal Club to have a player selected for the national team squads given that this is our first season in the National Futsal League.
‘Having players of this calibre wanting to play futsal for Chelsea FC Foundation Futsal Club shows we are going from strength to strength, and the exposure that the club will receive from having a player in the England set-up can hopefully attract more players to join this growing project.’
Black added: ‘I’m very happy to be included in the first Under-19 England squad.
‘It’s a great opportunity to test myself against some of Europe’s best, and hopefully I will be able to cement my position as number one goalkeeper for the Under-19s for the upcoming European Championships in 2019.’
