Wildsmith in contention as England face Portugal

17 November 2014

Aidy Boothroyd’s England Under-20 squad face Portugal in Coimbra this evening.

Joe Wildsmith will once again be in the young Three Lions squad.

The Owls keeper was an unused substitute last Wednesday as England suffered the disappointment of a stoppage time equaliser against Canada at the Goldsands Stadium.

Exeter City’s Christy Pym got the nod between the sticks as England remained unbeaten this season.

Boothroyd said: “Portugal are a very good side. They were runners-up to Germany in the Under-19s Euros last year and this is pretty much the same group.

"They are a very experienced team with over 500 caps at all age groups between them – which for such a young age is fantastic. So they will be streetwise and battle-hardened."
