Ezri Konsa called-up to England Under-21 squad

Defender part of Aidy Boothroyd's group in preparation for summer's Euros

14 March 2019

Ezri Konsa has been selected in the England Under-21s squad for two friendlies this month as Aidy Boothroyd's side step up preparations ahead of the summer's European Championship.

The Young Lions will first face Poland at Ashton Gate on Thursday 21 March, kick-off 7.45pm before taking on current Under-21 EURO champions Germany at the Vitality Stadium, Bournemouth, on Tuesday 26 March, kick-off 7.45pm. 

The games represent two more firm tests for the squad who are now focused on the Finals, which take place in Italy and San Marino and where England will face France, Romania and Croatia in Group C.

Ezri, who has a World Cup winners' medal with England Under-20s, has played three of England's last six Under-21 internationals, taking his cap tally to ten across both age groups. The 21-year-old has been an almost ever-present for The Bees this season, making 37 appearances since joining in the summer from Charlton Athletic.
