Which young Reds have received international call-ups?

Tuesday 21 March 2023 12:53

While several members of Manchester United's senior men's side are joining up with their countries for the March international break, the Reds are well represented in the youth levels too.

Nine of United’s Academy players have been given the nod, and will play for the likes of England, Scotland, Norway and Colombia across the break.

Omari Forson and Kobbie Mainoo, who have enjoyed fruitful campaigns so far, have been selected for the Three Lions’ Under-19s and will hope to play a part in their three Under-19 European Championship qualifiers across the week.

England’s Under-19s take on Hungary, Iceland and Turkey on 22, 25 and 28 March, respectively.

Joining Forson and Mainoo in representing the Three Lions is 17-year-old goalkeeper Elyh Harrison, who has been selected for the Under-17s squad, for the upcoming Euro qualifiers versus Northern Ireland and the Netherlands.

Louis Jackson and Jack Kingdon have both been called up for Scotland’s Under-18s for two friendlies in Wales, while Isak Hansen-Aaroen will link up with Norway’s Under-19s for the final round of qualifiers for the European Championship, against Romania, France and Northern Ireland. Maximillian Oyedele has been picked by Poland's Under-19s, for their qualifying matches against Israel, Latvia and Serbia.

For nations outside of Europe, Zidane Iqbal (Iraq) and Mateo Mejia (Colombia Under-20s) have been rewarded for their impressive performances so far this term with call-ups.

Our youth players will take part in their matches on the same week as the senior international break, which we have previewed in our comprehensive guide.

Congratulations to all of our Academy players on their call-ups.
