INTERNATIONAL WATCH | Amos starred for Northern Ireland U21s during the international break

15 October 2020

Amos started both of Northern Ireland’s fixtures during the break which brought a mixed bag of results including a 3-2 defeat to Finland U21’s and a very impressive 1-0 win over Ukraine U21’s.

Despite the defeat Amos had a great game on the left-hand side against Finland in which he played a great pass to Paul O’Neill, who finished nicely, to give Amos an assist to take away from a disappointing result.

Amos had another very solid game against Ukraine, and he forced a couple of good saves from their goalkeeper, the 1-0 victory was the icing on the cake to a very solid International break for Amos.

Liam Ravenhill was a later call up for Northern Ireland’s U21s squad for this International break. The 17-year-old gained the experience of being around the squad, however, he didn’t manage to make an appearance in either of the games.

Rovers also had two players selected to represent England during the International break. Josef Bursik was selected for England’s U21’s and Tyreece John-Jules was called up to England’s U20’s.

Josef Bursik was chosen to be on the bench for both of England’s UEFA Euro’s qualification games which included a 3-3 draw with Andorra and a 2-1 victory over Turkey. England achieved their qualification on this camp.

Unfortunately for John-Jules he picked up an injury while training with the U20’s squad before England’s first fixture.

New-signing Matt Smith joined Rovers on Friday following his return from Bulgaria with the Wales senior team. Smith and Wales played two Nations League matches in which they earned a draw and a win to remain top of the group.
