Snedker is part of the Three Lions squad who will take on the Danes in a friendly at Doncaster’s Keepmoat Stadium.

The youth-team graduate, who signed a three-year professional contact at Sixfields in August, is the only uncapped player in the squad as they plan for May’s Elite Qualifying Round in Belgium.

England face Belgium, Georgia and Scotland in the qualifiers, with only one team from the four progressing to the summer’s Euro Finals in Lithuania.

Snedker has made three first-team appearances for the Cobblers so far this season and is one of two scholars to sign professional deals, along with midfielder Lewis Hornby.

England squad to play Denmark: Goalkeepers: Jordan Pickford (Sunderland), Dean Snedker (Northampton Town).

Defenders: Tyler Blackett (Manchester United), Eric Dier (Sporting Lisbon), Greg Leigh (Manchester City), Jack O’Connell (Blackburn Rovers), John Stones (Barnsley), Jordan Willis (Coventry City).

Midfielders: Lewis Baker (Chelsea), Calum Chambers (Southampton), John Lundstram (Everton), Nathan Redmond (Birmingham City), James Ward-Prowse (Southampton).

Forwards: Chuba Akpom (Arsenal), Jacob Murphy (Norwich City), Josh Murphy (Norwich City), Dominic Samuel (Reading). Blair Turgott (West Ham United)
