Nydam Added to England U18s Squad
Friday, 17th Mar 2017 14:17
Academy midfielder Tristan Nydam has been added to the England U18s squad, which already includes his Blues team-mate Andre Dozzell, for their friendlies in Doha, Qatar.
Nydam comes in as a replacement for Fulham’s Dennis Adeniran, who has picked up an injury.
It's the first time the 17-year-old has been named in an England U18s squad and he is yet to win a cap at any other level, although he was on standby for the U17s last season.
The Zimbabwe-born, Colchester-raised youngster, who can also play at left-back, came on as a sub for the first team in the pre-season friendly at Cambridge and was on the bench for the match at Huddersfield in January but is yet to make his competitive senior debut.
The Young Lions will face the hosts on Wednesday 22nd March then again two days later before they take on Saudi Arabia on Monday 27th March.
England U18s: Ellery Balcombe (Brentford), Ryan Schofield (Huddersfield Town), Jake Turner (Bolton Wanderers), Morgan Feeney (Everton), Japhet Tanganga (Tottenham Hotspur), George Tanner (Manchester United), Reece James (Chelsea), Jonathan Dinzeyi (Tottenham Hotspur), Tolaji Bola (Arsenal), Sadou Diallo (Manchester City), Marcus McGuane (Arsenal), Tristan Nydam (Ipswich Town), Tariq Uwakwe (Chelsea), Andre Dozzell (Ipswich Town), Elliot Embleton (Sunderland), Reiss Nelson (Arsenal), Jonathan Leko (West Bromwich Albion), Samuel Shashoua (Tottenham Hotspur), George Hirst (Sheffield Wednesday), Edward Nketiah (Arsenal), Joshua Tymon (Hull City).

From Nothing to Something - And Back Again? by monty_radio
On the diamond jubilee of the rise of Ipswich Town from the old Third Division (South) we tremble on the edge of the abyss into which Coventry City have already fallen and have not yet hit the bottom.
It Really Could Be Worse by Superfrans
Instead of trekking all the way to Cardiff this weekend, I decided to go and watch my local team. Leyton Orient were playing Doncaster Rovers, bottom vs top in League Two.
Views of a Young(ish) Town Fan by tractorboy2000
After seeing the new season ticket prices, I felt like writing something would be a good form of therapy to get some things off my chest about Ipswich.
Two Defensive? by rickw
After our most recent bore-draw against Wolves I wondered if playing two defensive midfielders (DM) was just a personal gripe of mine and we actually got better results playing them or the stats backed up what I and I'm sure many other fans think - we shouldn't play two defensive-minded midfielders together.
