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 However, the on-loan Chelsea man was withdrawn due to a minor injury.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.

Broken Ipswich by SouperJim
There is an unspoken contract between the fans and the club. Marcus Evans has ripped up this contract.
It is a Question of Caring and Camps by TimS
I accept that it is very different following Town away from Suffolk. You do not pick up on the mood on the street in Suffolk and there is something very different thinking about your club through the media whether Town are playing in Suffolk or throughout the UK.
More Than a Manager by Stowmarket
It was a warm Friday evening in late May and almost a thousand Ipswich fans had a date with Bobby Robson at Portman Road.
The Nearly Men by ElephantintheRoom
Throughout the Robson years, Town built an enviable reputation for producing homegrown talent. Young players seemed to slip into the first team almost on demand. For over a decade the team prospered with only the occasional ‘missing piece’ sourced from elsewhere.
John O’Rourke – Unsung Hero by ElephantintheRoom
Town supporters of a certain age look back rather fondly at Bill McGarry’s promotion team of 1967/68. We may be grey. But our memories are vivid. That team of half a century ago signalled something of a rebirth and laid firm foundations for the many good times that lay ahead.
