Call-ups for Edwards & Novakovich

29 October 2014

Young duo get international nods

Our young duo Ryan Edwards and Andrija Novakovich have both received call-ups for their countries' youth squads.

Edwards has been called up by the Australian under 23 squad for a four-team tournament in the next international break, taking on Brazil, South Korea and China.

20-year-old Edwards has been a regular in our first team squad this season, making his debut in the opening game of the season at Wigan and being involved in 12 of our 17 fixtures in this campaign.

Striker Novakovich [pictured above] has been selected by the USA's under 20 squad for three games in Spain, when they take on Russia, Ireland and Canada.

The frontman has been in good form since joining the club this summer, and has already forced his way into our under 21 squad on a number of occasions.

Along with his fellow American Aleks Gogic, who is on our books as a goalkeeper, Andrija was recently part of a US film documentary that will be released in the coming months, featuring the likes of Tim Howard et al.
