Ezri Konsa selected for England Under-21s

Defender included as Young Lions look to wrap up European Championship qualification

5 October 2018

Ezri Konsa and England's Under-21s need just one point from their final two qualifiers to book their spot at next summer's European Championships in Italy and San Marino.

The Young Lions currently lead Group D by six points going into next week's final pair of qualifiers and look certain to join Italy, France, and Spain at next summer's tournament. 

First up, are bottom-of-the-table Andorra at Chesterfield's Proact Stadium, on Wednesday 11 October, kick-off 7.45pm. After that, Aidy Boothroyd's side head north of the border to take on Scotland at Tynecastle on Tuesday 16 October, kick-off 5.30pm.

Ezri earned his third England Under-21 cap, and eighth in total at youth level, last month during the 0-0 draw against Netherlands and is yet to concede a goal while playing for Boothroyd's side. 

At club level, the 20-year-old has started 11 games for The Bees since his summer move from Charlton Athletic and captained the side to a 2-2 draw at home to Reading last weekend.
