Sanchez Watt rewarded with England U19 place

Sanchez Watt rewarded with England U19 place

Arsenal starlet Sanchez Watt has been given an opportunity to impress at international level with England after the young striker was called up by Noel Blake for next weeks clash with Russia at the ProStar Stadium in Shrewsbury.

The call up will come as no surprise for Arsenal fans having seen the striker improve enormously over the last year, scoring crucial goals in the Gunners’ successful Youth Cup campaign before taking part against Rangers in the Emirates Cup in pre-season, illustrating just how far he has progressed in Wenger’s estimation. He’s fresh from scoring an impressive brace against Birmingham City reserves on Tuesday and will look to continue his impressive early form.

He’s not the only name of interest in the latest squad named by Blake though, with Spurs duo Andros Townsend and John Bostock, Villa’s Nathan Delfouneso and Newcastle’s Nile Ranger being included in a very promising attack for the England team. Townsend caught my attention in Arsenal’s 3-1 defeat in the Youth Cup quarter final last season where he shined despite his side being overrun by the eventual winners, while team mate Bostock is a far better known player but one who has lost his way since moving from Crystal Palace in what looks to be an ill advised and controversial move. The talent is still obvious and he has still got plenty of time to find his feet once more though.

Villa’s Nathan Delfouneso recieved the Golden Boot award in the recent U19 European Championships and is always a goalscoring threat and Newcastle’s Nile Range has proven himself to be another player capable of finding the net with ease.

Full Squad:

  • Nathan Baker (Aston Villa)

  • John Bostock (Tottenham Hotspur)
  • Reece Brown (Manchester Utd)
  • Matthew Briggs (Fulham)
  • Jordan Clarke (Coventry City)
  • Nathaniel Clyne (Crystal Palace)
