Ex-Blue Mings Set for England Debut
Monday, 14th Oct 2019 10:02
Former Blues defender Tyrone Mings is set to make his full England debut in this evening’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Bulgaria in Sofia (ITV from 7pm).
Mings was first named in an England squad for the September internationals but didn’t make it on to the field, however, it’s widely believed he will come into the centre of the defence for Michael Keane, twin brother of Blues striker Will, this evening.
The 26-year-old, who joined Aston Villa from AFC Bournemouth for an initial fee of £20 million in the summer, made 49 starts and 15 sub appearances for the Blues between December 2012 and June 2015 having been signed for £10,000 from Chippenham Town.
Mings, who hasn’t previously won a cap at any level, moved to the Cherries for £8.1 million with the Blues receiving a further £1.2 million following his Villa switch - with another £650,000 possible in the future - making him the club’s record sale.

A fixture that started as a mid-table game but ended as one that would be marked by having special T-shirts printed to commemorate it - this was the Demolition Derby.

The first leg had been played in the three-sided Portman Road, with no North Stand. Circumstances that many fans thought contributed to our relegation that season.
