Wan-Bissaka Selected By Three Lions

5 October 2018

Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been called up once again by England's under-21 side for their crucial qualifiers against Andorra and Scotland.

Aidy Boothroyd's team are on the brink of qualifying for the 2019 UEFA U21 Championships and need just a point from one of their last two matches during the next international break to secure their spot in the finals in Italy next summer.

England host Andorra in Chesterfield on Thursday 11th October, and then face a Battle of Britain clash in Edinburgh at Hearts' Tynecastle home five days later which the Palace man will hope to be a part of.

Wan-Bissaka has been named the club's Player of the Month for the past two months so far this campaign, and won his first under-21 cap against the Netherlands last month, helping England keep a clean sheet in a goalless draw.

He made the step up from the under-20s squad where he gained two caps earlier this year after breaking into the Palace first-team.
