4 October 2019

Ellery Balcombe has retained his place in the England Under 21 squad as Aidy Boothroyd's squad for games against Slovenia and Austria was named this morning.

The Bees goalkeeper, currently on loan at Danish First Division side Viborg FF, will join up with the Young Lions next week at St George's Park ahead of the games. First up is a friendly against Slovenia on Friday 11 October in Maribor, kick-off 6pm. It's then back to Stadium MK on Tuesday for a Under-21 European Championship qualifier against Austria, kick-off 7.45pm

Ellery has started all four of Viborg's NordicBet Liga games since heading to Denmark on Deadline Day, earning the Man of the Match award on his home debut. 

At international level, the 19-year-old made his England Under-20 debut when he was just 17 and has played 18 games for his country in total at Under-18, Under-19 and Under-20 level. He is yet to make his Under-21 bow, having remained on the bench for England's two qualifying victories in September.
