Marvin Sordell has been named in the England Under-21 squad for the forthcoming Euro 2013 play-offs against Serbia.

Sordell has struggled for first team action this season, but has obviously impressed Young Lions boss Stuart Pearce, who also picked the Wanderers striker in his Team GB Olympic squad earlier this year.

The 21-year-old has represented Pearce's side on eight occasions, scoring twice. Should England be victorious in the two-legged play-off against Serbia, they will quality for the group stage of the tournament, which will be held in Israel next summer.

Here is the England Under-21 squad in full:

Goalkeepers: Ben Amos (Hull City), Jack Butland (Birmingham City), Jason Steele (Middlesbrough)

Defenders: Ryan Bennett (Norwich City), Steven Caulker (Tottenham Hotspur), Nathaniel Clyne (Southampton), Craig Dawson (West Bromwich Albion), Tom Lees (Leeds United), Jack Rodwell (Manchester City), Danny Rose (Sunderland), Adam Smith (Tottenham Hotspur), Andre Wisdom (Liverpool)

Midfielders: Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Tom Ince (Blackpool), Henri Lansbury (Nottingham Forest), Jason Lowe (Blackburn Rovers), Josh McEachran (Middlesbrough), Nick Powell (Manchester United), Jonjo Shelvey (Liverpool), Raheem Sterling (Liverpool), Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace)

Forwards: Nathan Delfouneso (Blackpool), Marvin Sordell (Bolton Wanderers), Andros Townsend (Tottenham Hotspur), Connor Wickham (Sunderland)
