Trott back in England U-20 squad

Nathan Trott has been named in the England Under-20 squad for next week's international friendly away to Germany.

The Bermudian is one of two goalkeepers named in coach Keith Downing's 18-man squad that will begin their preparations at St George's Park this week before heading to Germany at the weekend.

The squad includes an Under-20 World Cup winner in Ezri Konsa, of Charlton Athletic, along with a number of players such as Trott who were members of England's squad that won the European Under-19 Championship in Georgia and the Toulon Tournament in the summer.

Bournemouth's Aaron Ramsdale is the other goalkeeper named in England's party.

England Under-20 will meet Germany Under-20 on November 14 at the Stadion Zwickau in Eastern Germany.

West Ham United under-23 goalkeeper Trott made his England under-20 debut in a 3-0 win away to Holland in September and also kept a clean sheet in a 4-0 victory against Czech Republic last month.

“Every cap for England is as special as the last one and it's the greatest honour as a footballer to represent a country as great as England,” Trott said.

Trott signed an initial 2½-year deal with West Ham in January 2016, which has since been extended until 2020 and has established himself as the No 1 for the club's under-23 squad.

The 18-year-old has been named in West Ham's first-team squad for this season and is reaping the benefits of training alongside the likes of England No 1 goalkeeper Joe Hart, who is on loan from Premier League leaders Manchester City.
