Nathan Bishop features for England U20s

19-year-old keeps clean sheet in 4-0 win

12 June 2019

Nathan Bishop was in action for England U20s on Tuesday night as the Young Lions ended the Maurice Revello Tournament with a convincing 4-0 win over Guatemala.

It was the perfect way for the Southend shotstopper to make his U20s National Team debut, keeping a clean sheet to ensure Paul Simpson’s side ended the tournament in style following three group-stage defeats.

All four goals came in the first half, two from George Hirst, a penalty from Eddie Nketiah and then another from Dwight McNeil.

And Bishop expressed his delight at featuring at international level for his country.

"It was an honour for me to play for my country alone but to top it off with a clean sheet feels amazing," he said.

"For me the experience was incredible being around a variety of different players from all different clubs with all different attributes I could learn from. 

"It was hard at times and testing but a great challenge, and to finish it off with an England cap made it an incredible experience for me and I’m looking forward to seeing what next season holds.”
