The 22-year-old centre-half made his fifth appearance for Pearce's Young Lions in Monday night's 4-0 win over Austria in Brighton and played up until the 74th minute.

Pearce is expected to name his squad for the tournament in Israel around May 13, with his side's opening match scheduled for Wednesday, June 5 at the Bloomfield Stadium in Tel Aviv.

Lees, in his second season as a regular starter for Leeds, made his debut for England Under-21s in a 1-0 win over Norway in Chesterfield last September.
