Norton-Cuffy called up for U20 World Cup

Brooke Norton-Cuffy playing for England U20s

Brooke Norton-Cuffy has been selected by England for this summer’s U20 World Cup in Argentina.

The defender, who has impressed on loan at Rotherham United and Coventry City this season, will travel with the Young Lions to the finals which starts on May 20.

Ian Foster’s side will kick off their campaign two days later when they face Tunisia before they face Uruguay in their second game. They‘ll then complete the group stage when they play Iraq on May 28.

The call-up is a culmination of a fine season for the 19-year-old, who made 21 appearances for Rotherham before switching to Coventry in January. He has matched that tally for the Sky Blues, helping his temporary club into the Championship play-offs where they will now face Middlesbrough. That form led him to receive his first three caps at under-20 level back in March.

Last summer saw him taste international success as a member of Foster's triumphant England side that won the 2022 UEFA Euro Under-19 Championship, playing in all five matches during the competition.

Brooke is the second Arsenal player to be selected for the tournament, with Marquinhos named in Brazil’s squad.

England are hoping to lift the trophy for the second time, having tasted success in 2017 when Ainsley Maitland-Niles was part of the successful squad.
