Basey wins under 21 cap

Stade Sportif Deich Ettelbruck

At the time of writing Grant Basey, who could well be Charlton's first choice for left back next season, is winning his first under 21 cap for Wales as they take on Luxembourg in Ettelbruck. Ettelbruck has a population of 7,500 and the stadium is home to FC Etzella, one of the Grand Duchy's more successful teams, although their Uefa Cup record has been poor.

Jonjo Shelvey has now played in two matches that England have won in the Under-17 championships being held in Hungary.

Good on Grant. Think he was substitued as a tactical measure.

We are back in the days when an 'obscure' u18 or u21 cap was cause for pride and celebration.
