Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been called up for the England under-20 squad for their upcoming matches against Poland and Portugal.
The wing-back made his professional debut last month when he started against Tottenham Hotspur, and after impressing in that game he has kept his place in the side to also play the full 90 minutes against Manchester United and Chelsea.
Those displays have impressed Keith Downing who has added the 20-year-old to his World Cup winning squad for their two European Elite League games, which will see them firstly head to Bielsko-Biala to take on Poland on Thursday 22nd March, before facing Portugal at Manchester City’s Academy Stadium on Tuesday 27th March. England are currently second in the table at the halfway stage of the competition, a point behind Germany who top the standings.
Wan-Bissaka will be hoping to help the Young Lions boost their chances of winning the tournament by winning his first youth caps for England, having previously won a single under-20 cap for the Democratic Republic of Congo, which came against England’s under-18 side in October 2015.
