Josh Dasilva named in latest England Under-21 selection

Young Lions close campaign with games against Andorra and Albania

6 November 2020

Josh Dasilva has been retained in the England Under-21 squad as Aidy Boothroyd's men look to put the finishing touches to their successful European Championship campaign over the coming days.

The Young Lions have already secured their spot in next year's finals with 22 points from their eight games, seven clear of Austria in second. 

The only points Boothroyd's side have dropped came after a 3-3 draw against Andorra last month, and it is the tiny principality nation up first for England at Molineux on Friday 13 November, kick-off 7.30pm. Four days later, and at the same venue, Albania are the opponents, kick-off 7.25pm. 

Having made his England bow against Austria in September, Josh scored one and set one up in that game against Andorra on his first start. He then earned his third cap against Turkey a few days later as The Young Lions confirmed their progress through to the finals next year. 

Those finals will be played in Hungary and Slovenia. They will be split across March, for the group stages, and then May and June for the knockout stages. 

At Club level this season, 22-year-old Josh has started all ten of our Sky Bet Championship fixtures. He netted the first league goal at our new home, the opener against Huddersfield Town in September, and also have one goal in three EFL Cup outings, that coming against Southampton in Round Two.
