Reds quartet get England call-ups

Posted by nickogs20 on August 15, 2009

England Under-17 head coach John Peacock has included new first-year scholars Sam Johnstone, Tom Thorpe, Ravel Morrison and Will Keane in his squad for the upcoming FA International Tournament.

The annual four-team tournament will this year feature Portugal, Italy and Turkey, with England as hosts, and gets underway on August 26th. Games will be staged at Notts County’s Meadow Lane, Burton Albion’s Pirelli Stadium and Northampton Town’s Sixfields Stadium.

Goalkeeper Johnstone is one of four players retained by Peacock from the squad that took part in the summer’s U17 European finals, but for the trio of Thorpe (a centre-back), Morrison (a winger/attacking midfieler) and Keane (an attacking midfielder/forward) it’s a first call-up at this level. All four United youngsters were part of Kenny Swain’s U16 squad last season, so they’re not strangers to representing their country.
