Trott receives England Under-21 call-up
Nathan Trott has achieved another career milestone after earning a first call-up to the England Under-21 squad for their Under-21 European Championship qualifiers against Turkey and Kosovo.
The West Ham United goalkeeper, who is on loan at Sky Bet League One side AFC Wimbledon, joins promising players such as Phil Foden, of Manchester City, Manchester United’s Mason Greenwood and Burnley’s Dwight McNeil in the 23-man squad.
Aidy Boothroyd’s team face Turkey at the Izmit Stadium on September 6, before hosting Kosovo at Hull City’s KCOM Stadium three days later. Their group also includes Albania, Andorra and Austria.
“Delighted to get my first U21 call up,” Trott tweeted.
The Under-21 European Championship finals will be held in Hungary and Slovenia in June 2021.
Trott made his debut for the England Under-20 side against Holland in August 2017 and has been capped six times.
He was also a member of the England squad that won the 2017 European Under-19 Championship in Georgia.
The 20-year-old was named in the England Under-20 team for the defence of their Toulon tournament title in France this summer but was later ruled out because of injury.
Trott initially signed a 2½-year deal with West Ham in January 2016, which has since been extended twice until 2022.
He joined Wimbledon on loan in June and made his Football League debut in Wimbledon’s 1-1 draw at home to Accrington Stanley on August 17 and has started the last three games for the club.
