Wan-Bissaka Selected by England Under-21s

31 August 2018

Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka has received his first call-up to the England under-21 side, with the right-back in contention to play in the Three Lions' upcoming Euro qualifiers with Holland and Latvia.

The 20-year-old has started the season as Roy Hodgson's first-choice right-back and currently has 10 Eagles appearances to his name, having debuted back in February against Tottenham Hotspur.

Since then, his performance have been rewarded by the Three Lions at under-20 level, with the south Londoner winning caps against Poland and Portugal in March.

Now he has been handed a chance to step up after being selected by Aidy Boothroyd's under-21s, who are on the brink of qualifying for the 2019 UEFA European Championships in Italy next June.

England currently top their group, five points ahead of nearest challengers Holland with four games remaining. The two teams face off at Norwich City's Carrow Road on Thursday 6th August, before England take on Latvia four days later in Jelgava.
