Youth internationals- reports on Akpom, Hayden, Olsson, Moore and Kamara



Chuba Akpom and Isaac Hayden both featured as England U20s thrashed Romania 6-0 yesterday. Hayden played the whole game at right-back, whilst Akpom was deployed as the lone striker before being replaced after 63 minutes.

Kristoffer Olsson played the whole game as Sweden U21s beat Greece 3-0. Olsson, who recently sealed a loan move to FC Midtjylland, is expected to feature again when Sweden take on Turkey next week.

Glen Kamara played the entirety of Finland U21s’ 2-2 draw with Wales. The result means that Finland, who take on San Marino next week, still have a small chance of reaching the final tournament.

Renny Smith came on after 60 minutes as Austria U19s lost 4-1 to Switzerland. The midfielder helped to win the corner from which Austria’s goal was scored.

Tafari Moore played the whole game at right-back as England U18s beat Holland 3-1.

Goalkeeper Hugo Keto was called up but didn’t play as Finland U17s beat Slovakia 2-1.

Deyan Iliev is in the Macedonia squad for their qualification game against Cyprus on Tuesday.





  1. I find it very strange that O’Connor and Maitland-Niles have not had many call ups for this current England squad of U17’s and U18’s when they have clearly shown they are more than good enough for this level, not sure why this is happening and hope this does not continue for much longer

  2. Also, Kaylen Hinds and Chris Willock starred for England U17s at the FA International Tournament last week. Hinds scored 3 in 3 games. Willock didn’t score any but created numerous chances.

    Some highlights:
    England v Czech Republic 1-1

    England v Italy 4-3

  3. Kamara played well. For my eyes he was one of the best players in the field. Still should pass the ball quicker forward and avoid few silly passing errors.
