Nydam and Downes in England U19s Squad
Thursday, 24th Aug 2017 11:09
Town duo Tristan Nydam and Flynn Downes have been named in the England U19s squad for friendlies against Poland and Germany during the international break.
Nydam, 17, previously won one cap at U18s level, while fellow academy product Downes, 18, features in an international squad for the first time.
The Young Lions face the Poles at St George’s Park on Friday 1st September and the Germans at Mansfield’s One Call Stadium on the following Tuesday.
The squad features a number of players who were involved as the U19s won the European Championships in Georgia in the summer and Andre Dozzell, a key member of that side, would almost certainly have been included had he not suffered a season-ending cruciate knee ligament injury on the opening day of the campaign.
Meanwhile, academy first-year full-back Dylan Crowe featured for the England U17s as they lost 2-1 to Italy at Kidderminster on Tuesday in the final of the tournament they have been involved in over the last week, while schoolboy striker Zak Brown netted a debut winning goal as the U16s beat Turkey 2-1 yesterday.
England U19s: Ellery Balcombe (Brentford), Keanan Bennetts (Tottenham Hotspur), Ben Brereton (Nottingham Forest), Jaden Brown (Tottenham Hotspur), Flynn Downes (Ipswich Town), Elliot Embleton (Sunderland), Edward Francis (Manchester City), George Hirst (Sheffield Wednesday), Reece James (Chelsea), Daniel Kemp (West Ham), Jonathan Leko (West Bromwich Albion), Marcus McGuane (Arsenal), Mason Mount (Vitesse Arnhem, on loan from Chelsea), Reiss Nelson (Arsenal), Edward Nketiah (Arsenal), Tristan Nydam (Ipswich Town), Ryan Schofield (Huddersfield Town), Dujon Sterling (Chelsea), Japhet Tanganga (Tottenham Hotspur), Jake Turner (Bolton Wanderers), Josh Tymon (Stoke City), Tariq Uwakwe (Chelsea), Joe Willock (Arsenal).

The Long and Winding Decline by ElephantintheRoom
The long, slow decline in Town’s fortunes since we became part of the mysterious and opaque ‘Marcus Evans Business Empire’ has been both hugely depressing and acutely embarrassing. But if we’re honest, Town’s decline pre-dates the much-maligned Marcus Evans’s arrival by decades. Both on and off the pitch.
