England are hoping to qualify from their group to reach the knockout stages in late May.
Speaking about Cantwell's omission when naming his original squad, England U21 boss Aidy Boothroyd said: "When you look at the squad, it's a tough call. I found that one in particular a very difficult decision to make.
"Mainly because of the form, after Christmas the upturn in terms of his minutes, numbers and Norwich's position - they are playing very well - it made it a difficult decision. They are coming towards the end of a very long season up at the top of the league. Todd has been with us before. He's been excellent when he was with us. I know how important it is for him to play for his country."
