Kirby Named In England Under 18 Squad

24 August 2017

England Under 18’s boss Steve Cooper has selected Nya Kirby as part of his 23 man squad for their forthcoming matches against Brazil and South Africa.

The games will form a vital part of the Young Lions' preparations for October's FIFA Under-17 World Cup, for which they qualified by finishing as runners-up at the European Under-17 Championships this summer.

17 year old Kirby has previously played for the England under 16 & 17s and at club level signed a professional deal with the Eagles in February 2017. He was previously on the books of Tottenham Hotspur before linking up with Palace at the start of 2016/17, and quickly earning himself a professional deal after impressing for the development side.

Cooper's side faces Brazil at Shrewsbury Town on Friday 1 September, then South Africa at Leek Town on Monday 4 September. Both games kick off at 7pm.
