Nathan Trott Eager For England U/19 Debut

March 22, 2017

Bermudian goalkeeper Nathan Trott hopes to make his England U19 debut against Norway on Wednesday, saying it “would be a great moment in my career, because this is what I need to take my career to the next level.”

A report  on West Ham’s website said, “Nathan Trott says it would be a ‘great moment’ to make his debut for England U19s in their European Championship qualifier against Norway on Wednesday.

“Trott has been one of the rising stars for Terry Westley’s U23s this season and was rewarded with a call-up after a string of top performances in the Hammers net.

“The 18-year-old goalkeeper travelled to St. George’s Park on Sunday to begin training with the Young Lions as they prepare for qualifiers against Norway, Spain and Belarus.

“It’s been pretty tough over the last few days because I’m still getting used to international football,” said Trott. “It’s my second call-up but my first time training with the team for a period of time.

“We train twice a day so it’s been a challenge getting used to the training schedules. It’s taken some getting used to but it’s going really well and I’m enjoying it.

“The style of play is quite similar to West Ham. We play really good football at West Ham but it’s a slightly different level here with England because you have the best players in the country playing here.”

“Bermuda-born Trott earned his first call-up to the England U19s in October, but injury meant he could not travel and make his debut for Keith Downing’s men.

“However, the youngster hopes he can stay fit and help England achieve their aim of qualifying for the European Championships in July.

“It would be a great moment in my career [to make my debut] because this is what I need to take my career to the next level,” Trott added.

“To play would be a brilliant opportunity and my family would be very proud. It would be nice to get on the pitch and help the team and it would be great for all the players if we could qualify for the Euros.”
