Hot on the heels of their success in winning the Sky Sports Victory Shield last week, the England U16s have now turned their attention to the annual international Montaigu Tournament in France later this month.
Both Devante Cole and Shay Facey have been named in the squad of 18.
A solitary goal from Adam Drury, converting a cross from Alex Henshall ,was enough to give City's academy side the win, in the second of their tournament games.
If the UAE do not defeat Qatar then City will progress through to the semi final stages of the competition where they are likely to face Valencia/Al Jazira or the Tunisian National U17 side.

Manchester City, Valencia, Club Africain and Qatar’s Under-17 team have confirmed their participation in the Al Jazira International Friendly Tournament from April 3-13.
The quartet, including two of Europe's most recognisable names, are part of the six-team competition, which also includes hosts Al Jazira and the UAE U-17s.
Al Jazira have been drawn in Group One along with Africain and Valencia, while the UAE is in the other half of the competition and has Qatar and the Abu Dhabi-backed Manchester City for company.
The tournament is being held under the patronage of Abu Dhabi Sports Council (ADSC), with the top two finishers from the group stages qualifying for the semi-finals.
Al Jazira Academy board member Hamad Al Shabibi said: “This is our first U-17 tournament. We contacted many countries so that Jazira’s younger players would get a chance to play with international players.”
Al Jazira CEO Phil Anderton added: “To host a tournament like this on the time scale we have had is simply superb and shows the direction we have.
“We’ve had great support from ADSC. An event of this scale needs good facilities and our players stand to benefit from this as they will come up with players from Europe and Africa and Qatar.
“For our boys to play with them is good experience because most of them will play in the first team in the future.”
Anderton says bringing people into the stadium will be a challenge, but he says the club will be doing its best to usher in fans.
“We’re going to try and get people to come and support the teams, but it’s clear that we’re not expecting tens of thousands of people to come since it’s not adult tournament, but U-17 games.”
Jazira Technical Directory Andre Wetzel said the tournament is a chance for the club’s youngsters to prove their worth and make their point ahead of the forthcoming junior tournament organised by Dutch Eredivisie side ADO Den Haag.
“We are excited that this tournament can be delivered. Our main goal in putting this together is for the development of future players. They need to learn to cope with playing under pressure and in big stadiums and in front of a larger audience,” Wetzel said.
“In the next two to three months these boys will have to step up towards a brand new Al Jazira academy and then they will also be going to Holland at the end of May for a junior tournament. That tournament is from May 19-25 and that will be the second great experience for the players.”
ADSC’s Talal Al Hashimi added: “An event like this is sure to help in the development of our youth. ADSC is investing in the future of our youth and our association will bring together youngsters from different parts of the world.”
