Jack Butland, already a full international, is among the goalkeepers selected while the party also features exciting West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino and Blackpool's Tom Ince.
Shrewsbury manager Graham Turner said: "It's a tremendous fixture and recognition of what's been done here with the facilities and the playing surface, and the way England teams have been treated in the past.
"There's been the under-19s, the under-20s, England's women's team, and the reception they've had here, the level of support, has helped us to get more games here.
"We will be seeing the cream of young English players and I think it's a terrific opportunity for the people of Shropshire and the West Midlands to come and see them all together."
The full squad is: Goalkeepers: Jonathan Bond (Watford), Jack Butland (Barnsley, on loan from Stoke City), George Long (Sheffield United).
