Young Blues on International Duty


Recommended Posts

Michael Mancienne started in Stuart Pearce's England Under 21 side which settled for a goalless draw against Holland tonight (Tuesday). Daniel Sturridge and Ryan Bertrand, who is currently on loan to Reading, spent the first half on the bench for England, while Mancienne tested Newcastle's Tim Krul twice with a couple of long-range efforts, but to no avail.

Sturridge, who gained his first England Under 21 call-up against Holland, then came on with 46 minutes played, replacing James Vaughan, before Bertrand came on for Kieran Gibbs with just over 30 minutes left.

Jeffrey Bruma was also on the bench, but for Holland, and he joined the game at the same time as Sturridge, playing the majority of the second half.

Carl Magnay started in Northern Ireland's 2-1 away defeat to Portugal, in which he played the full 90 minutes.

All three goals in that game came in the second half, with Yazalde opening the scoring before Fabio Coentrao secured Portugal the win. A late consolation goal for the ten-man Ireland came from Everton's Shane Duffy.

Chelsea's Under 20s contingent saw Jack Cork line-up for England against Montenegro and a 5-0 thrashing. England players Fabian Brandy and Tom Cleverley both found the net twice, while Tope Obadeyi finished the scoring in the 90th minute.

Would just like to point out the outstanding achievement of Jeffrey Bruma getting his first call up and making his debut for the Dutch U21's side at the age of 17. This lad is as big of a talent as Kakuta, the difference is that Bruma is a centre back........

He is certainly a highly talented lad. He is miles ahead of anyone else his age at our or any other club in the centre back position. Will be interesting to see how Chelsea develop him...
