ARGYLE’S midfielder enforcer Josh Grant was presented with an England Under-20s cap by Director of Football Neil Dewsnip and Club Secretary Zac Newton before Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two fixture with Crewe Alexandra at Home Park.
Josh, on loan from Chelsea has made 28 appearances for Argyle this season, represented the Three Lions during the Maurice Revello Tournament in Toulon in the 2016-2017 campaign. (otherwise known as the Toulon Tournament)
Instead of receiving a cap for each appearance, youth players for England receive one cap for each year that they have played. Josh played four times during that competition in 2017- against Angola, Cuba, Scotland and the eventual finalists Ivory Coast.
The young Lions went on to win that tournament, beating the Ivory Coast in the final courtesy of a penalty shoutout. Bournemouth midfielder David Brooks had given England a first-half lead, although they were pegged back with nine minutes to play, also from the penalty spot.
Ike Ugbo; Elliot Embleton; Harvey Barnes; Calum Slattery and Ronaldo Viera all converted for England. Midfielder Jean Lazare missed the crucial kick for the Ivory Coast.
