Dozzell and El Mizouni Could Win Caps
Monday, 15th Oct 2018 10:08
Midfielder Andre Dozzell could win his first England U20s cap this evening when the Young Lions take on the Czech Republic in the U20s Elite League in Budejovice (KO 5pm), while Idris El Mizouni is with the Tunisian Olympic squad who face Italy in Vicenza.
Dozzell, 19, replaced team-mate Trevoh Chalobah in the England squad last week having initially joined up with the party just to train along with Flynn Downes. However, the on-loan Chelsea man was withdrawn due to a minor injury.
The Blues academy product was an unused sub as the England youngsters beat Italy 2-1 in another Elite League game on Thursday but appears likely to win his first cap at U20s level this evening. Dozzell has previously represented England at U17, U18 and U19 levels.
Town’s U18s assistant manager Kieron Dyer joined head coach Paul Simpson’s staff for last week’s get-together and will continue to work with the former Carlisle, Preston and Shrewsbury boss at the next few training camps.
El Mizouni, 18, has spent the last week with the Tunisian Olympics squad - an U23s side - and came on as a sub in a training game against domestic side Club Africain last Wednesday, winning the penalty which led to the decisive goal.
The academy youngster, who has made an impressive start to the season having broken into Town's U23s on the strength of his early displays for the U18s, will win his first cap at any level if he is involved in this evening’s friendly against the Italians.
France-born El Mizouni, who is with a Tunisia squad for the first time, qualifies via his father.

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.
