Reece Oxford and Nathan Trott earn England call-ups


Reece Oxford and Nathan Trott have both been called up to the England U19s squad for the upcoming UEFA European Championships in Georgia.

Both will join up with Keith Downing’s squad next week when they head to Murcia, Spain for a six-day training camp.

The team will then return to St. George’s Park before flying out to Tbilisi, Georgia for the Euros, which begin on July 2.


Oxford is hugely experienced on the international stage and could captain the side in Georgia, whereas Trott will be hoping to make his first appearance in a Three Lions jersey.

The 18-year-old stopper was called-up to the squad for the three Elite Round qualifiers in March, but had to watch from the sidelines. He’ll be pushing for a starting spot in the first group fixture against Bulgaria on Monday 3 July.


"It's a great feeling to get a call-up again," said Trott. "I've had a really good season and it's always an honour when you get a call-up to play for England.

"It's been a long wait to get my first cap and hopefully during this camp for the Euros, I can impress the coach enough for me to get a start."

The Young Lions they face the Netherlands three days laters before rounding of their Group B campaign against Germany on Sunday 9 July.
