Trott called up for Germany friendly

Safe hands: Nathan Trott has been capped six times by England at under-20 level

Nathan Trott has been named in the England Under-20 squad for this month’s international at home against Germany.

The Bermudian goalkeeper retains his place in Paul Simpson’s squad having featured in a 1-1 draw in the Euro Elite League away to the Czech Republic in October.

Trott, who has been capped six times for the England youth team, was just minutes away from what would have been a fifth clean sheet at this level before the home side grabbed a controversial late equaliser, only the fourth goal that he has conceded at that level.

He is one of three goalkeepers in the 21-man squad, along with Bournemouth’s Aaron Ramsdale and Leeds United’s Will Huffer.

Trott made his under-20 debut in August 2017 in a 3-0 win over Holland and did not concede a goal in his first four appearances.

His impressive streak finally came to a halt in a 3-1 loss away to Holland in an international friendly in September.

Trott was also a member of the England squad that won the European Under-19 Championship in Georgia last year.

England will face Germany on November 19, two days before Trott’s 20th birthday, at Colchester United’s Jobserve Community Stadium.

The Bermudian is one of two West Ham players named in Simpson’s squad for the upcoming clash against Germany as team-mate Grady Diangana has been called up for the first time.
