    Felix Nmecha with England again which suggests he's leaning this way now. He's one of the better dual nationals to play for two England and another country recently.

    Makes sense. Was a bit concerned with a worrying trend for the senior team and the 21s in terms of the midfield. Most of the other areas seem to have evolved or modernised, whereas the midfields have a lot of old-school profile of players. Mount is one of those you want inducted from now. Lewis Cook is another who could have been capped by now.

    Interesting that Maitland-Niles didn’t get a called. He’s been doing well recently, has loads of caps at all levels, won the u20 World Cup and can play in multiple positions. The u21s are desperate for a CM and he can play there.

    No Maitland-Niles is a joke....he should be in the squad and not Walker-Peters.

    Nelson but not Bowen is a joke too.

    Gomes is a massive stand out in that u19 squad. Needs to stamp his authority on those games.

    Interested to see how Vieira gets on with the 20s as well.

    Its a strong squad in fairness. Aarons is Norwich's first choice right back and they are top of the Championship. Lamptey is a fantastic right back too. Panzo and Guehi are top prospects at centre back. Saka has appeared for Arsenal seniors this season and impressed. Gomes and Gibbs-White we know about. Nmecha is a really talented player and Appiah, Mceachran, Sessegnon and Eyoma have all stood out at youth international level.

    Permanent switch too I think. Seems unlikely we’ll keep Felix long term in light of that. I think Felix would be a loss. Lukas less so.

    Yep right now Lukas is no big deal......Felix could be a loss but that would have pissed me off 5 years ago (We have currently so much quality in all age groups so :) ).

    4-1 to England



    Saka was man of the match. I think he's the only one from the lasts years Euro u17s squad to be promoted past the u18s. He's already impressed for Arsenal seniors in the EL this year so he could be in for a fast progression.

    The U20's have lost 1-3 against Poland :houllier: (Nketiah has scored the goal in 57th minute)....so they have no chance anymore to win the Elite League (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2018–19_Under_20_Elite_League#League_table).

    Starting XI
    Schofield - T.Edwards, T.Chalobah, Godfrey, Pearce - Embleton, Dozzell, Field - Diangana, Nketiah, McNeil

    Disappointing from the u20s but the squad isn't great in fairness. It kind of looks like a lot of England youth squads used to, a smattering of talents but mostly uninspiring.

    Surprised Jayden Bogle has been ignored at Derby County. He's played against some really good sides in the Cups this season and looked very good. First teamer all season for Derby and not even a look in. Also a bit shocked Ellis Simms isn't in the England setup, he's bossed it for Evertons youth team.

    Anyway, assessing the squads, i'd say the below players are the ones I know about in particular and look pretty decent. Some of the others I know about and don't look all that good, the majority I haven't really heard much about.

    Reece James (Wigan Athletic, loan from Chelsea)
    Dwight McNeil (Burnley)
    Max Aarons (Norwich City)
    Jonathan Panzo (AS Monaco)
    Lewis Gibson (Everton)
    Bukayo Saka (Arsenal)
    Morgan Gibbs-White (Wolverhampton Wanderers)
    Angel Gomes (Manchester United)
    Felix Nmecha (Manchester City)
    George McEachran (Chelsea)
    Rekeem Harper (West Bromwich Albion)
    Ethan Laird (Manchester United)
    James Garner (Manchester United)

    Yes Bogle should be in the U19 squad imo.

    I don't rate Simms so highly (He could play for Poland and Jamaica too). No call-ups for Brown (Chelsea) or Griffiths (Lyon) are the bigger shocks for me.

    The U17's are playing their first Euro qualification game (They have had a bye in the first qualification round) against Switzerland in Silkeborg.

    They are 2-0 up after 34 minutes.....Rogers (He has already played for West Bromwich's first-team) and Greenwood with the goals....very easy game so far the Young Lions.

    Croatia have won 3-2 against Denmark in the other game.

    Starting XI
    Moulden - Livramento, Wood-Gordon, Harwood-Bellis, Roberts - Azeez, Weir, Madueke - Elliot, S.Greenwood, Rogers
    Bench
    Trafford, Mengi, Bondswell, Musah, Bate, Peart-Harris, Knight, Mighten & Gelhardt

    3-0 up at half-time....Greenwood has scored again.

    They should lead 5-0 (Greenwood and Elliott have missed massive chances).....England are 3-4 level better than Switzerland (Switzerland's first qualification games were pretty poor).

    Should be the last chance for Lookman.

    Davies instead of Dowell would be better too for Maddison and Foden.

    I would have played Davies against Poland and Chowdhury against Germany because they have much more quality in midfield with Dahoud, Amiri, Maier & Neuhaus (I have watched their friendly against France).

    Rumours that Wan-Bissaka and possible Abraham will get a call-up to the senior squad tonight.

    Hope they have been called up to the first team.
