Joe Wildsmith on England Under-21 duty

17 March 2016

Owls goalkeeper Joe Wildsmith has received a call-up to the England Under-21 squad.

Gareth Southgate’s side face Switzerland in a UEFA European Championship qualifier in Thun.

The game will be staged on Saturday 26 March at the Stockhorn Arena, with kick off at 6.00pm.

Wildsmith has been involved in the England Under-21 set-up since back in October, when he was elevated from Under-20 to 21 level.

Also in the squad between the sticks is Sunderland’s Jordan Pickford and Brighton’s Christian Walton.

Of his achievements on both the domestic and international stage, Wildsmith said: “It’s been a big season for me so far and I’m very proud of what’s been achieved and there are a lot of people to thank.

“The gaffer has been brilliant with me and Andy Rhodes has shown a lot of faith in me and I hope I’ve repaid them a little with my performances.”
