Downes Limps Off in England U20s Defeat
Monday, 14th Oct 2019 21:30
Flynn Downes limped off injured late on having come off the bench as an England’s U20s side also featuring Andre Dozzell lost 3-0 to the Czech Republic at Peterborough United’s London Road.
Downes, who was winning his fourth cap, came on as a sub in the second half - replacing Dozzell in the 65th minute - and worryingly for Town came off with what appeared to be a hip problem in the closing stages, forcing the Young Lions to finish the game with only 10 men.
The 20-year-old midfielder has been a key man in the Blues’ excellent start to the season, having rarely been subject to manager Paul Lambert’s rotation policy.
Fellow midfielder Dozzell, also 20, started the game and won his seventh U20s cap.

Politics and Ipswich Town by ElephantintheRoom
You might just have noticed that the TWTD Forum is awash with political comment. Annoying for some perhaps, who only want to discuss Norwood’s fitness – but surely no bad thing, given the stark choices facing us at a critical time in the country’s history?
The Story Behind the Billy Kee Banner by ThatMuhrenCross
Sunday's defeat to Accrington Stanley was the first real low point of what has been a fantastic season following Ipswich Town. The performance on the field was nowhere near the standards we'd expect of a team that was flying high at the top of the table.
History Boys and Renaissance Men by Stowmarket
How many of us who were fortunate enough to have followed ITFC back in 1980 realised at the time that we were indeed blessed to be around to witness the greatest ever Ipswich Town side?
Round Three: Eagle by Kropotkin123
Par was set at five points from one win and two draws. We managed to get a haul of seven points, which means we were two under par. Google promises me that this is an eagle.
