England Squads Announcement : Nine Nigeria-eligible young stars called up


The English Football Association have announced the rosters for the Three Lions and development squads ahead of international matches in November.

It is a foregone conclusion that Nigeria Football Federation target, Chelsea’s Fikayo Tomori will become cap-tied to England, the country where he was raised, when he makes his competitive debut against either Montenegro (Nov 14) or Kosovo (Nov 17).

The former Canada youth-team skipper and Chelsea teammate Tammy Abraham have been named in the 27-player group by manager Gareth Southgate.

Queens Park Rangers attacking midfielder Ebere Eze has accepted a call-up to feature for England U21s in upcoming matches against Albania and the Netherlands.

Should Eze play against the Albanians in an U21 EURO qualifier on Friday 15 November, he has to apply to FIFA to change his association if he decides to play for the Super Eagles in future.

Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka, Chelsea’s Faustino Anjorin and West Ham loanee Ajibola Alese have been called up by manager Paul Simpson for the first qualifying round of the U19 EURO.

England will tackle North Macedonia, Luxembourg and Bosnia & Herzegovina as they bid to qualify for the elite round in March 2020.

An age group lower, two midfielders Miguel Azeez (Arsenal) and Nonso Madueke (PSV Eindhoven) have been summoned by England U18 boss Ian Foster for their trip to Spain, where they will face Russia, Norway and Czech Republic in friendly matches.
England U17 manager Kevin Betsy has included Daniel Oyegoke and goalkeeper Tobi Oluwayemi on his roster for two home fixtures against Denmark and Czech Republic.
