Remember watching him for the u19s in the Cee Cup in 2018. He was top scorer, was amazed to find out he was only just turned 16 considering he was as big as any of the defenders.
Don't follow the u18s league though, had no idea he was putting up those numbers. Very impressive.
Simms has just got his first call up to England in the u18s. I think they have been reluctant to use him previously because of his size advantage but there were a couple missing including Greenwood so he's in the squad for the upcoming games.

Just back from going to the game (plus beer/pizza after) Dutch #9 is an absolute unit and very rapid but their #6 and #3 impressed me the most. So calm on the ball and used it superbly. Cracking match. Some quality goals.
nr 3 is nephew of Chelsea legend Winston Bogarde

crazily, the biggest defensive talent in that team actually isn't Bogarde or Hoever, though, it's Devyne Rensch, the other centreback, though he had a fairly quiet tournament
