2 September 2016

Find out how our Internationals are getting on this weekend

Ellery Balcombe missed out on a place in Neil Dewsnip's matchday squad as England's Under-18s beat Italy 2-1 in their first game of this week's mini tournament in the North West. Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount scored either side of a Matteo Gabbia strike to hand the Young Lions victory at Fleetwood Town's Highbury Stadium. Ellery will hope to earn his first cap for his nation on Monday when Israel are the opposition at Morecambe's Globe Arena.

Elsewhere, Lewis Macleod has been forced to pull out of the Scotland Under-21 squad due to a slight ankle injury picked up in last weekend's 1-1 draw with Sheffield Wednesday. The 22-year-old midfielder had linked up with Ricky Sbragia's side for their qualifiers against FYR Macedonia and Ukraine but it was decided he should return to Griffin Park for treatment on the injury.
