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).

Reflections on Relegation by TimS
I was walking through Kesgrave last Saturday afternoon around 4.35pm with my mind wandering. I could distinctly remember making the same walk from a local Tesco through Grange Farm back in the spring of 2002.
The History Boys by Tristan90
My first season following Town was 2002/03, just after relegation from the Premier League and in full of optimism for a quick return.
It's Not R*********, It's the Promise of an Adventure by BaltachaFanClub
Let’s be totally honest, we’ve not had a good year. I know that’s an understatement and come August we begin in a league we haven’t played in for the majority of most readers’ lives.
Reasons for Relegation by rickw
This week has seen several newspapers print their stories on Ipswich's demise giving their simplistic reason on what's gone wrong.
If Stats Won Games: Small Victories by Kropotkin123
If you think the Premier League is over analysed with meaningless stats by meaningless contributors, have I got a treat for you! With six games to go and a 44% chance of relegation even if we win all six, my attention has turned to more realistic, less fruitful objectives.
