Capped at U19 level but showing as no caps at U19 level.


Recommended Posts

I am managing in Gibraltar and I have just had cause to look at (23d) Finney (ENG) who someone wants to take on loan. 


We have recently ticked over to a new season so the European U19 Championship Prelim Qualifying C games at the bottom of the screen stand out. 

I wonder how many times he has played for the U19's I think so I look to the top and it tells me that he has "No youth caps". I know that he has dual Nationality thanks to his nickname so I look at his Profile - Information - Nationalities. 

If he had been capped at England at age group level it should tell us here. Nothing. 


So now I'm intrigued and I look at his form. 


He's capped at U18 level but not U19 level. :confused:


But the tournament he is playing in is the European U19 Prelim Qualifying. 

Why are U18 teams playing in an U19 competition? :confused:

Gibraltar have the Senior squad and 3 age group squads. There are no U23's which I am used to seeing elsewhere though. 


The U18's squad play in the Euro U19 Championship Prelims. 


The previous season they also played in the U19 Int League B Second Round Group 4. 


The U19's squad have just played friendlies this season. 



But did play in Euro U19 Championship Qualifying 2 and 3 seasons ago. 



Is this really how it's meant to be?
