Welwyn footballer Dominic Ball made his England U19 debut last night (Wednesday) coming off the bench in the Young Lions' 3-0 victory over Turkey.
The 18-year-old Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, who used to play for Welwyn Pegasus, featured during the second half of the game in Chester as the England U19s stretched their unbeaten run to 15 games under head coach Noel Blake
Ball, who has previously played internationally for the Northern Ireland youth set-up, came off the bench in the 58th minute with England leading 1-0 following a 22nd minute goal for Devante Cole, son of former England and Manchester United striker Andy Cole.
Ball replaced Chelsea youngster John Swift and England soon added a second goal through Chelsea’s Lewis Baker who netted a penalty and a third thanks to Aston Villa’s Callum Robinson.
Dominic’s brother Matt is a Northern Ireland U21 international on the books of Sky Bet League 1 Stevenage.
