Gunn given his England debut
Norwich City’s Angus Gunn was set for his England Under-16 debut in this afternoon’s international against Slovenia in Koper.
The 15-year-old Academy ’keeper has been kept waiting for his first cap by the postponement of England’s Victory Shield matches against Northern Ireland and Scotland, re-scheduled for next month.
Their only match in this season’s home nations competition so far was a 4-0 defeat in Wales, in which he did not appear.
“It’s a whirlwind trip but they are here for a purpose. This is a great opportunity for us to play some continental opposition and it prepares the players for what is to come, in this case, the final two Victory Shield matches,” said Swain.
The son of former City ’keeper and manager Bryan Gunn made his FA Premier Academy League debut for the club against Crystal Palace 10 days ago.
