Ap­piah in U18 squad

Nottingham Post - - SPORT -

TEENAGE sen­sa­tion Arvin Ap­piah has been called into Eng­land’s Un­der-18 squad for a four-na­tions tour­na­ment later this month.

The re­ward comes just a week after the Not­ting­ham For­est young­ster made his se­nior de­but, grab­bing a goal in the Reds’ de­feat at Bur­ton Al­bion in the Carabao Cup.

Ap­piah will travel with Neil Dews­nip’s Young Lions squad to Mur­cia in Spain for the tour­na­ment with the Nether­lands, Repub­lic of Ire­land and Bel­gium.

The Young Lions will face games kick­ing-off on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 15, against the Nether­lands at the Pi­natar Arena, and the 17-year-old will hope to keep up his im­pres­sive re­cent record while away on in­ter­na­tional duty.

They will then take on the Repub­lic of Ire­land two days later be­fore they round off their fix­tures against Bel­gium on Mon­day, Novem­ber 19.

Ap­piah was in the squad last month for wins over Czech Repub­lic and Swe­den, with Ap­piah grab­bing a goal in the 4-0 win over the Swedes, as well as scor­ing in the penalty shoot-out win over the Czechs.
