Adam Lewis has been called up to the England U17s squad for their Euro Qualifiers against San Marino, Armenia and Portgual. Lewis made headlines last month when he scored a spectacular goal for England in their 3-0 win over Italy. After this performance which included that 35th minute strike into the top corner, Lewis has earned another chance with his national side.
Three games will take place in the next couple of weeks, with the first game against San Marino coming a week today on 29 September. Steve Cooper’s side then play their next game just 48 hours later, but they take on Armenia. Their third and final game comes on 4 October when they face Portgual, in what arguably is their toughest test of the three ties.
Liverpool midfielder Lewis will join with Cooper, who has experience coaching Liverpool youngsters. Cooper was the manager of the Reds’ U18s side in what is more than likely one of Liverpool’s more succesful teams, in terms of quality of the players. After spending six years with the club, he was appointed England U16 manager in October 2014.
It will be Lewis’ fourth international game in total, with his one and only England U16 appearance coming in November 2014, and his other two coming for England U17s. The Three Lions are in Group 9 of the Championship, and with be looking to qualify for the tournament.
