Leeds United defender called up for UEFA European U21 Championship Qualifiers

Charlie Cresswell has been called up to England U21’s for their upcoming UEFA Euro U21 Qualifiers. 

Lee Carsley has included Cresswell in every England U21 camp since he took on the role in July 2021. The Leeds man has made two appearances so far, coming off the bench for his debut in the final minutes of a 3-1 win over Czech Republic at Turf Moor in November, before making his first start days later in a friendly away to Georgia. 

This season for Leeds, Cresswell was one of several academy graduates to support the first team and make their Premier League debut. 

The 19-year-old started and played the full 90 minutes against West Ham at Elland Road and went on to make four further Premier League appearances off the bench.
