The teenage midfielder, who returned to the Ipswich Town first team in the two games prior to the international break, was called into the Under 20 squad for training but subsequently replaced Trevoh Chalobah after his Ipswich Town team-mate suffered a minor injury.

He started in the Elite League game in Budejovice and played 80 minutes in midfield, before being withdrawn in a game which ended 1-1.

Chalobah was an unused substitute in the Young Lions 2-1 defeat by Italy last week, while Flynn Downes has also been training with the squad during the international break.

Kieron Dyer, who leads Ipswich Town’s Under 18s alongside Adem Atay, was part of the England coaching set-up for the week and was impressed with what he saw.
