El Mizouni Targeting Further First-Team Action
Friday, 15th Mar 2019 11:39
Debutant midfielder Idris El Mizouni is targeting further first-team action having made his senior bow as a sub at Bristol City on Tuesday. The 18-year-old came on for the final 15 minutes at Ashton Gate as the sides drew 1-1.
"I was delighted to make my debut against Bristol City and I'm still buzzing now," El Mizouni told the club site.
"It was a really good game to come into as well. We played well and I think we maybe deserved the win.
"The gaffer spoke to me before I came on and said 'Go out there and show me what you have done for the U23s and in training’, and that helped me relax.
"I really enjoyed it and I would love to get some more minutes in the first team this season - especially at Portman Road.”
El Mizouni was called up to the Tunisia U23s squad - with whom he has previously won two caps - for their home and away Africa Cup of Nations qualification games against South Sudan during the international break but has been given permission to remain with the Blues as he looks to make his case for more first-team involvement to manager Paul Lambert and his staff.
French-born El Mizouni, who joined Town as a scholar in the summer of 2017, qualifies for Tunisia 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.
