Benicio Baker-Boaitey made five first-team appearances this season.

Albion forward Benicio Baker-Boaitey has been included in the England Elite League squad for two games in June.

The 20-year-old is part of a 24-man party that will play two games in Croatia against Sweden on Friday 7 June and Republic of Ireland on Tuesday 11 June.

Baker-Boaitey, who joined Albion from Porto in 2021, was a regular for the under-21s in Premier League 2 this season and made five first-team substitute appearances, including four in the Premier League and one in the FA Cup.

The Elite League squad was formerly known as England's under-20s. Coached by Ben Futcher, they have won their last three games and scored 11 goals in the process.
