Downes Withdrawn From England U20s Toulon Squad
Tuesday, 28th May 2019 11:33
Blues midfielder Flynn Downes was withdrawn from the England U20s squad for the Maurice Revello Tournament in Toulon next month, TWTD understands.
Downes, who has been capped twice at U20s level, was initially named in the squad prior to its public announcement this morning but was pulled out by Town to allow the 20-year-old to recover from an ongoing minor injury over the summer.
We understand Andre Dozzell is currently on the standby list, while ex-Blues loanee Trevoh Chalobah is in Paul Simpson’s party, who face Japan, Portugal and Chile in the group stages.
England U20s: Ellery Balcombe (Brentford), Nathan Trott (West Ham United), Jayden Bogle (Derby County), Trevoh Chalobah (Chelsea), Marc Guehi (Chelsea), Reece James (Chelsea), Max Lowe (Derby County), Tom Pearce (Leeds United), Steven Sessegnon (Fulham), Easah Suliman (Aston Villa), Sam Field (West Bromwich Albion), Conor Gallagher (Chelsea), Dwight McNeil (Burnley), Josh Sims (Southampton), Joe Willock (Arsenal), Kyle Edwards (West Bromwich Albion), Eberechi Eze (Queens Park Rangers), George Hirst (OH Leuven), Danny Loader (Reading), Eddie Nketiah (Arsenal), Marcus Tavernier (Middlesbrough).

He’s destined to be the first player to have a statue in his honour (if the somewhat radical design doesn’t make it look like he’s slipped off his pedestal).

Football's Financial Crisis by Stowmarket
I have been watching English football for over 40 years, from top-tier to non-league. In that time it has faced many low points, including mass hooliganism and stadium deaths in tragedies such as Hillsborough and Valley Parade.
Green’Un With Envy by ElephantintheRoom
I guess you have to be of a certain age to remember the Green’Un. Those brought up in the era of the Internet might struggle to understand the excitement of hearing a possibly still-damp newspaper of greenish hue drop through the letter box on a Saturday evening.
