Simon Andersson called-up to Sweden Training Camp

Young goalkeeper joins National Team in Bosön

13 November 2018

Simon Andersson has joined up with his international team-mates as Sweden's Under-17s hold an end-of-year Training Camp in Bosön.

Simon, who joined The Bees in the summer from Swedish side Halmstad BK, is one of 68 players included by Head Coach Tomas Turesson for the four-day camp this week. 

The goalkeeper has been an integral part of his nation's set-up in recent months, making 17 appearances for the Under-17s. He was an ever-present during the summer as The Swedes reached the last eight of the Under-17 European Championships held in England. 

The 17-year-old made his first appearances for Brentford B during their tour to Switzerland in September, keeping a clean sheet on both his outings. Simon kept up his record of not conceding last time out as he was part of the side which beat CB Hounslow United 4-0 in the Middlesex Senior Cup. 

Simon is the fifth member of Kevin O'Connor's B Team squad to receive an international call-up this month joining David Titov (Latvia Under-19), Patrik Gunnarsson (Iceland Under-19), Jan Zamburek (Czech Republic Under-18), and Kolbeinn Finnsson (Iceland Under-21).
