Leicester's Soccer Sevens Squad Named - 2017

Leicester City have now confirmed the Soccer Sevens squad that will head to Hong Kong this May.

Ben Petty will lead a group of ten players from the Development Squad out to the seven a side tournament this year and it takes place on May 27 and 28.

The squad:

Daniel Iversen

Darnell Johnson, Connor Wood, Josh Wright, Alex Pascanu

Liandro Martis, Hamza Choudhury, Lamine Kaba Sherif

Josh Gordon, Joshua Eppiah

Leicester head out on Tuesday May 23 and games last only 14 minutes.

Day One fixtures in full:

Saturday 27 May:
9:52am - Leicester City vs. HKFC Captain`s Select
11:35am - Leicester City vs. Kashima Antlers
1:16pm - Leicester City vs. Wellington Phoenix

Speaking to Petty explained.

'We are delighted with the squad we have picked. It has a good balance to it. We`ve selected Daniel Iversen in goal. Max Bramley went last year but we felt Dan deserved it this year after his performances. Connor Wood and Alex Pascanu are very versatile and we feel they can both move into midfield if need be. Josh Knight and Darnell Johnson, too, are very good one-on-one so I`m pleased with the backline. We`ve got Hamza Choudhury, who went last year and will be our captain, alongside Lamine Kaba Sherif and Liandro Martis in midfield which will give us some flair in the middle. Up front, we are taking Josh Gordon and Josh Eppiah as our two main attacking threats. They`ll bring pace and power to the side and, overall, I`m very pleased with the balance to the squad.'
