David could come up against Brentford B teammate, and England Under-19 goalkeeper, Ellery Balcombe in qualifying while Marcus Forss and Jaakko Oksanen are both likely to be included in hosts Finland’s squad for the finals.As well as that quartet, Mads Bech Sorensen and Lukas Talbro also have hopes of making it to the summer’s tournament as Denmark gear up for their qualifiers against Austria, Turkey, and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

David joined the B Team in its inaugural year, signing from The Bees Under-16 squad. Comfortable at full-back and on the wing, David has made 23 appearances for Kevin O’Connor’s side this campaign, scoring his only goal in the 3-3 draw against Exeter City last month. The 18-year-old recently signed a new contract to commit his future to the club until the summer of 2019.
