Nathan Trott said it would have been a “great moment” to make his debut for England U19s in their European Championship qualifier against Norway, but unfortunately he was not named in the squad.
Trott has been one of the rising stars for Terry Westley’s West Ham Under 23’s this season and was rewarded with a call-up after a string of top performances in the Hammers net.
The 18-year-old goalkeeper travelled to St. George’s Park on Sunday to begin training with the Young Lions as they prepare for qualifiers against Norway, Spain and Belarus.
“It’s been pretty tough over the last few days because I’m still getting used to international football,” said Trott. “It’s my second call-up but my first time training with the team for a period of time.
“We train twice a day so it’s been a challenge getting used to the training schedules. It’s taken some getting used to but it’s going really well and I’m enjoying it.
“The style of play is quite similar to West Ham. We play really good football at West Ham but it’s a slightly different level here with England because you have the best players in the country playing here.”
