in full international debut
DATE: 30.05.2018 - THE CUNNING FOX - BLOG
George Thomas made his full
international debut when coming on as a 2nd half sub in a friendly
v. Mexico. The game taking place in Pasadena US, ended in a draw in
front of a 82 000 crowd
George Thomas has this season mainly played in the U.23 side at
Leicester City, but from time to time been involved in the first
team, being named on the substitution bench, but he has not yet made
his full debut in the first team.
Thomas joined from Coventry City last summer, switching first team
play at League 2 level with a chance to become a Premier League
player at a very young age. He was allready at that time a regular
in the Wales U.21 set up.
To see the progress of young players at the Leicester City academy,
with also Hamza Choudhury making his England U.21 debut a few days
ago, is thrilling and hopefully will make it possible to get more
players through to the first team.
Andy King was the other Leicester City player in action in Pasadena,
playing all 90 minutes and showing the skills needed to still be
part of a set up under Claude Puel. But again AK might be
eager to player more regular first team football in the future.
Wales manager Ryan Giggs had to bring in a number of new faces for
his trip to US, since a number of his best players were absent, one
of them, Gareth Bale showed what type of player he is v. Liverpool,
what a goal.
Steve Beaglehole and his development staff at Leicester City are all
doing a grand job in bringing talent forward. Harvey Barnes and
Callum Wright are two other players who are also involved in England
Claude Puel has shown during last season that he is not afraid to
bring forward young talent. We just have to wait and see how this
all will progress, and how Leicester City will develope through the
TCF loves to see youth players coming forward and we can see a
pattern, but not yet convinced how this is organised and controlled
in combination with players allready established in the first team.
Too many youngsters at once can be a challenge, and to have the
right blend is always important. But of course great to see that
players in the academy is getting full international debuts.
