Judge and Dozzell Win Caps in Draws
Thursday, 5th Sep 2019 21:54
Alan Judge and Andre Dozzell won caps as both the Republic of Ireland and England U20s drew this evening.
Judge was a 58th minute sub as former Blues boss Mick McCarthy’s Ireland side drew 1-1 with Switzerland in a Euro 2020 qualifier in Dublin, ex-Town striker David McGoldrick equalising in the 84th minute with his first international goal.
Judge, who was winning his seventh full cap, was booked for committing a couple of fouls and also made one important intercepting far post header behind for a corner with the Swiss otherwise appearing certain to score.
Ireland, who now top their group, although having played more games than the teams below them, face Bulgaria in a friendly on Tuesday, also in Dublin.
Dozzell was in the starting line-up as the England youngsters drew 0-0 with Holland at Shrewsbury’s Montgomery Waters Meadow.
The midfielder was winning his fourth cap at U20 level. He could win his fifth when the Young Lions take on Switzerland in Basel in another friendly on Monday.

Wing Wonders (Part Two) by ElephantintheRoom
As the sixties morphed into the seventies, wing wonders at Portman Road were a bit like London buses. Four had come along at once, though in truth one or two (like those same London buses) were also easy to miss.
2019/20 - Grating Expectations by tractorboykent
A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.
Wing Wonders (Part One) by ElephantintheRoom
It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.
John Cobbold’s Ace Gardener by ElephantintheRoom
For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.
Big Al by ElephantintheRoom
When the Kevin Beattie statue is revealed, I suspect it will be his great pal and fellow central defensive titan, Allan Hunter, who will do the revealing. What will be going through Big Al’s mind I wonder? Sadness at his friend’s passing – but mixed with fierce pride perhaps.
