Blues Men’s International round-up

As a selection of Blues players sign off from Men’s international duty, takes a dive into the last of the action from the break.

On Monday, George Hall played the entirety of England Under-18s remarkable 3-3 draw with Denmark at the Marbella Football Center. The Young Lions trailed by a deficit of three early in the second-half but roared back to earn a draw in Spain. This came four days on from Hall playing 25 minutes for Ryan Garry’s side as they beat Sweden 3-2.

Neil Etheridge earned another international cap as he kept goal for the Philippines on Tuesday against Singapore. The Azkals were, however, beaten by a 2-0 scoreline for the second time in the FAS Tri-Nations Series, having lost out to Malaysia last Wednesday. These matches were being used to prepare for the third round of 2023 AFC Asian Cup qualification matches in June.

Jordan James was a part of the England Under-20s side that overcame Germany on Tuesday evening. Andy Edwards’ team impressed at Colchester United’s JobServe Community Stadium to win 3-1, with James coming off the bench in the second-half of the victory.

On the same evening, Scott Hogan came off the bench to help the Republic of Ireland beat Lithuania in Dublin. At the Aviva Stadium, the Blues frontman played the final 13 minutes and had a fourth international goal ruled out for offside before teammate Troy Parrott struck a late winner.
