Topic: Crystal Palace defender Marc Guehi to captain England U21s for Euro 20
Crystal Palace defender Marc Guehi has been named England Under-21s captain, manager Lee Carsley has confirmed.
The 21-year-old, who joined Palace from Chelsea for a fee of £18million over the summer, will wear the armband throughout the Young Lions' qualifying campaign for the 2023 European Championship.
“Mark will lead the squad for the whole campaign,” said Carsley.
“He is a player I’ve know for two or three years and straight away I was impressed with how mature he is, the way he talks about the game and influences the players off the pitch.
“The example he sets off the pitch as well as on it made it an easy choice.
