England’s Under-20 side will take on their Romanian counterparts tonight, and one player who is excited ahead of the match is Jordon Ibe.
The Liverpool youngster, who joined Derby County on a season-long loan deal last week, is in the Under-20 squad for the first time.
The 18-year-old has been involved with the Under-18 and Under-19 squads, and this is certainly a sign of progress on his part..
Ibe seems to be relishing the prospect of playing at AFC Telford United’s New Bucks Head stadium tonight and took to social media to express his delight.
The youngster posted the following photo on Instagram on Thursday along with the message: ‘It's that time again, game day tomorrow..’.
Ibe is considered as one of the brightest prospects in English football and is expected to continue his progress at promotion-chasing Derby this season.
The teenager has yet to make his debut for the Championship outfit, but he is likely to do so when league action resumes after the international break.
Ibe is an ambitious young footballer who is determined to make it into the senior England squad sooner rather than later.
‘I hope to continue this development and, hopefully, progress through all the age groups and on to the senior side one day’, the Derby Telegraph quotes him as saying.
How long will it take Jordon Ibe to break into England’s senior team?
