Rave reviews arrive from England camp as Elliot Anderson sends new message to Steve Bruce

It looks like Elliot Anderson has taken his opportunity with both hands after being handed his first call-up to the England U19 squad.

The Athletic’s Chris Waugh reports that he’s ‘excelled in training’ – wowing teammates with a host of impressive goals – and also caught the eye in a friendly against Arsenal’s U23’s, operating in the No 10 role.

Not only that, The Chronicle’s Mark Douglas claims that Anderson shone against the Gunners, with him helping the Young Lions to a 6-1 win.

Here’s what The Athletic’s Chris Waugh had to say after hearing rave reviews from St George’s Park:

Elliot Anderson has made a positive impression on England U19 duty this week, by all accounts.

Not only has he excelled in training, scoring impressive goals, he also played well as a No 10 vs Arsenal U23s in a friendly.

Will that warn him a place on #NUFC’s bench? Who knows…

Bruce denied him a loan move to Championship side Luton in January, yet he’s failed to include the 18-year-old in his matchday squads of late – never mind hand him some much needed first-team minutes.

With him clearly too good for U23 football in the Premier League 2 and passing the England test with flying colours so far, it feels like time to blood him in.

His age has been used against him when Bruce discusses his lack of game time, but his fearless displays for club and country suggest he might just be ready to play some part in our relegation battle.

  1. On the bench? Like the Longstaffs, because they have the awesome Shelvey and Hendricks ahead of them, right? God help us.

  2. We have him and the longstaff brothers, all 3 have massive potential but under Bruce they will perish, we have history of this, look at Armstrong and Toney, both told they weren’t good enough for Newcastle and now both are proving that they’re currently better than us, let’s hope we can get a capable manager in that can and will utilise the great young talent we have at our disposal

    Both good at a lower level,No one thought Either were going to make it and neither could have challenged for a starting place ,The fans would have slaughtered the club for lack of ambition if they had of kept them, Who says they are good enough now !both unproven at the top level and are either of them a better striker than Gayle or Wilson..your only valid point that I agree with is the manager is ****e
