Gustav Engvall has been called up to represent Sweden in this summer’s UEFA European Under-21 Championship.
The City forward has been named by head coach Håkan Ericson in his final 23-man squad for the tournament in Poland.
That means Engvall could line up against England – and possibly Tammy Abraham – in the opening match of the competition on Friday, June 16th.
The 21-year-old returned to his home country in March, signing on loan for Djurgardens IF until July, in a bid to boost his chances of playing at the Euros.
A return of five goals in 11 appearances has done the trick, earning Engvall the call-up he craved.
“It’s excellent news,” City head coach Lee Johnson told bcfc.co.uk. “I’m delighted for Gustav – he went back to Sweden to get game time and he’s scored a few goals, which is exactly what we’d hoped for.
“It’s very important for him and us to get that tournament exposure. That was part of mine and Gustav’s conversations before allowing him to go on loan, and we wish him well in the competition.”
Sweden boast an excellent record in the tournament. Not only are they the reigning champions, having beaten Portugal on penalties in the 2015 final, but they have reached at least the semi-finals in each of their last three appearances.
After opening the competition against England in Kielce, the young Swedes will hope to make an impression against hosts Poland (June 19th) and Slovakia (June 22nd) in Lublin.
Tom Lindsay will retire from professional rugby at the end of his contract, following sixteen years in the game.
