Sky Blues trio set to miss Peterborough clash following international selection

THE SKY Blues will be without three key players for the trip Peterborough on Good Friday following international call-ups.

Leading scorer Adam Armstrong has been selected once again for England Under-19s as they face Georgia, Greece and Spain.

Armstrong, who has bagged 19 goals in 33 appearances this season, travelled with the young Lions to Spain on Sunday.

He will also miss the home fixture against Colchester next Tuesday but will return in time for the trip to Gillingham on April 2.

Teenager James Maddison will also miss the Peterborough clash after being called up to represent England for the first time in his career.

The 19-year-old has been chosen to represent England Under-20s when Keith Downing’s side host Canada at Doncaster’s Keepmout Stadium on Easter Sunday.

It is the first time Maddison has been selected to represent his country and the tricky midfielder tweeted: “Unbelievable feeling to get called up to represent my country @england thanks to everyone for the kind messages, very much appreciated.”

Defender Jack Stephens will be hoping to make his second appearance for England Under-21s when they travel to Switzerland this Saturday.

Gareth Southgate’s side travel to Switzerland for the European Championship qualifier looking to extend their unbeaten run in Group 9 to five matches.

It was a debut to forget for Stephens who was sent off  during the 0-0 draw against Bosnia and Herzegovina back in November last year and like Maddison, he will be available for the home match against Colchester.
