International calls for two youth players
Two of this season’s first year scholars have recently received their first international calls at the end of what have been their first full seasons at Turf Moor.
Central defender Edon Pruti (pictured), a central defender who was signed from Stevenage last summer, has stepped up to become a regular in the team this season, more so with Bobby Thomas having moved into the under-23s in the second half of the season.
Pruti was called into the Albania under-19 squad for two friendlies last week against Macedonia, one at home and the other away.
Team mate Ne-Jai Tucker, meanwhile, is on his way to America to play for his country Bermuda at under-17 level. He’s been called up for the CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying Tournament to be played in Florida.Share this page :
