England’s underage teams are in the news lately with major competitions happening this summer, and Tottenham Hotspur’s Marcus Edwards will most likely be part of that. England U19 manager Keith Downing has named a preliminary squad ahead of this summer’s U19 European Championships in the Republic of Georgia, and Edwards was the only Tottenham Hotspur player tapped.
Edwards is considered one of the most exciting Tottenham players currently in its academy, and one of the best English talents of his generation. After killing it at all levels of England’s youth setup thus far, he’s only now starting to crack the first team at Spurs, having come on as a substitute in this fall’s League Cup win over Gillingham at White Hart Lane.
Tottenham transfer target Ryan Sessegnon is also a member of England’s squad, and his participation will likely give Spurs fans a chance to watch him in action ahead of a potential move to north London.
The U19 European Championships will be held July 2-15, 2017. England has been drawn into Group B with Germany, Bulgaria, and the Netherlands.
