🌍 Harriott makes international debut

Winger wins first senior cap for Guyana

25 March 2019

It has been a whirlwind international break for Royals wide-man, Callum Harriott. Not only did he make his senior international debut for Guyana, he helped them qualify for the CONCACAF Gold Cup in the first place.

This now means Harriott will have a summer of an international tournament to look forward to, with 16 teams from across North and Central America as well as the Caribbean taking part to win the Gold Cup in June. 

Harriott played his part for the whole 90 minutes as the Golden Jaguars overcame Belize with a 2-1 win in Leonora on Saturday, securing Guyana's first ever appearance on the Gold Cup stage in the process.

Elsewhere on the international scene, Danny Loader came off the bench but couldn't salvage a result from a 2-1 defeat for England's Under-19s over the weekend, as they took on Greece.

Goals from Georgios Liavas and Apostolos Diamantis had the Greeks 2-0 up before Loader's introduction 20 minutes from time in their European U19 Championship Elite Qualifying match.

Wolves player, Morgan Gibbs-White netted for the Young Lions in added time, but they were unable to secure a point on the day. Loader and England will have to beat Denmark on Tuesday to stand a chance of qualifying for the summer's tournament, now sitting behind Greece by one point heading into their final match.

Young Scots, Jordan Holsgrove and Ben House (The latter is currently out on loan with League Two side, Swindon Town), both started for Scotland's Under-21s as they lined up against Sweden in Marbella on Monday lunchtime.

Closer to home, Chris Gunter watched on among the substitutes as Wales got off to a flying start in their qualifying campaign for Euro 2020, with a spectacular Daniel James strike seeing off Slovakia in Cardiff on Sunday.

Anssi Jaakkola was also an unused sub for Finland over the weekend, as Italy completed a comfortable 2-0 win over the Finns in European Championship qualifying.

Last but certainly not least, Yakou Méïté, away with the Ivory Coast's senior setup, was on the bench as they comfortably despatched Rwanda with a 3-0 win over the weekend, earning themselves qualification for the Africa Cup of Nations in the summer by finishing as runners-up to Guinea in Group H.

The Royals will be reporting back for training later this week, as the Championship returns with another vital game - as Preston North End get ready to visit Madejski Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
