Eddie Nketiah is back in the England u21 squad after breaking their goalscoring record, but Joe Willock misses out despite his strong form.
The FA announced their England u21 squad for the upcoming break on Friday. The u21s will face Andorra on Friday, 13th November (7:30pm) before hosting Albania on Tuesday, 17th November (7:25pm), with both games on BT Sport.
Fresh from breaking the all-time England u21 goalscoring record, Eddie Nketiah will return to the squad this month. However, Reiss Nelson misses out with the knee injury we exclusively revealed on Thursday.
Additionally, Joe Willock isn’t involved for the third international break in a row this season. He was previously a regular with the England youth teams, and he appeared in the u21s over both the October and November breaks last year.
But he seems to be out of favour with Aidy Boothroyd. Despite a Man of the Match performance against Molde FK on Thursday, he misses out again.
There’s a lot of competition in midfield, with the likes of Jude Bellingham, former Gunner Josh Dasilva, Ebere Eze and Curtis Jones all involved. Still, if Willock starts playing more regularly for Arsenal, he’d surely hope to find a way back in.
For now, Nketiah remains the sole draw for any Arsenal fans without an interest in England, Andorra, or Albania to tune in.
