McNeil Wins First Cap

Clarets teenager plays full 90 minutes for England U20s

21 March 2019

Dwight McNeil won his first England cap but couldn’t prevent the Under-20s losing 3-1 to Poland.

McNeil played the full 90 minutes of the game at St George’s Park.

The winger earned his first national call-up after impressing for the Clarets since becoming a Premier League regular at the turn of the year.

And his progress was also recognised by being asked to step up and train with the senior England squad for a session on Tuesday as Gareth Southgate's side warms up for the start of their European Championships qualifying campaign.

McNeil, 19, is now due to fly out with the Under-20s to play in Portugal next Tuesday night.
