Leeds United’s Lewis Cook sends message following England Under-19 action

Leeds United’s Lewis Cook was part of the England Under-19 squad for the ongoing international break.

Cook is considered one of the best players in English youth football, and he has taken to his personal Twitter account to send a message following his recent appearances with the Three Lions’ Under-19 side.

Cook was named in the squad for there three Under-19 qualification games for Euro 2016, appearing in two of them, and sitting on the bench for the opening game against Macedonia.

He even managed to pick up his first assist for the Young Lions, setting up Tammy Abraham of Chelsea for the only goal in a 1-0 victory over Finland on Saturday.

England have topped their group, securing their passage to the Elite Phase of qualifying, the final stage before the Finals tournament in Germany next summer. Finishing atop their group ensures Aidy Boothroyd’s team will be guaranteed a favourable draw in the elite stages.

Cook will be hoping to continue his rise in the Under-19 side in the elite stages, and then in the finals tournament next summer, if England get there.

He has picked up five caps, and if he continues his good form with Leeds this season - and his establishment as one of the best midfielders in the Championship - Cook should find no trouble being named in Boothroyd’s squad for the foreseeable future.
