Chelsea youngster Levi Colwill had an afternoon to remember on Wednesday after he captained England Under-19s for their European Championship qualifying victory over Andorra.
The 18-year-old Chelsea prospect was handed the armband by Ian Foster and helped the Young Lions keep a clean sheet during their 4-0 win in Stockholm.
Leading out your country is an honour only designated to a relatively small pool of players, so to do so at any stage of a professional’s career should be celebrated.

It is a nod to how well the 18-year-old has been playing domestically that he was named captain of the national side. He is enjoying life on loan with Huddersfield Town in the Championship, the youthful defender’s first full taste of senior football.
19 games into the campaign and Colwill has already racked up 14 appearances, one goal and an assist. During that time he has helped the Terriers (Huddersfield Town) to seven victories and five clean sheets.
