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).

Where Did It All Go Wrong for Paul Hurst? by Herbivore
The dust has not yet settled on the reign of Town's shortest-serving permanent manager, a reign the significance and memorability of which is likely to be more dependent on our post-Paul Hurst fate than on his mere 14 league games in charge.
Expectations of Paul Lambert's Ipswich by radiogaga
I, my brother and my father have gone to watch Ipswich for a decent stretch of time between now, albeit not as long as many of you. My first game was back in 1998, as a 1-0 home defeat as Bolton and Bob Taylor stunned us in injury time.
An Open Application for the Ipswich Manager's Position by BaltachaFanClub
With the Town job up for grabs once again, I thought I should make a light-hearted, open application for the job my (fictional) self.
From Despair to Where? by BlueBadger
Some thoughts, in the wake of another gutless, soulless defeat. This time at the hands of Leeds.
