Mattock makes England U21 debut
Leicester City's Joe Mattock made his England Under-21 debut today. At the age of just 17, Mattock became the second youngest player ever to represent England at this level.
Mattock played the full 90 minutes in England's U-21 European qualifier against Bulgaria, which England won 2-0, goals from Agbonlahor and a penalty from James Milner.
Mattock, who made his Leicester debut in April this year, had previously made appearances for England at U-17 and U-19 level before being called up by U-21 manager Stuart Pearce as a late replacement in the squad along with fellow City player Richard Stearman.
Mattock signed a three year contract with Leicester in the close season keeping him at the club until 2010.
Richard Stearman, who was also called up to the U-21 squad was an unused substitute for the match.
Both players will travel to Portugal for England's next qualifier on the 20th.
