Eddie Nketiah gets England U-19 call up

Ghanaian born England player Edward Keddar Nketiah has been invited to the English Under 19 team.

He has been included in coach Keith Downing in a 23-man squad for the qualifiers for the Euro Under 19 championship in Finland next year.

The call-up comes following his recent fine form at his club side Arsenal.

The young attacker made his international debut for England at the under-18 level against Saudi Arabia on 22 March 2017.

He scored the second goal for England in the 57th minute as they won 2–0.

The England Under-19 side will face Faroe Islands this night (Wednesday), after which they will lock horns with Iceland and Bulgaria in subsequent weeks.
