Sepp Makes Netherlands U21 Debut

12 October 2021

Sepp van den Berg made his Netherlands U21s debut on Tuesday evening in a 5-0 victory over Wales U21s.

The defender, on loan at Preston North End from Liverpool, came on as a substitute in the 60th minute, when the 'Young Lions' were already five goals to the good, and he helped his nation see out the victory.

Van den Berg had only previously been an unused substitute in two games for the U21s, including their 2-2 draw last week against Switzerland's U21s, after earning his first call-up to the age group in September.

They continue their EURO 2023 qualification campaign, which has seen them take seven points from a possible nine so far, in November as they face Bulgaria and Gibraltar.

Elsewhere this international break, first-year scholar Josh Seary featured twice for the Republic of Ireland U19s.

They faced Sweden on two occasions in Marbella, both games finishing as a draw, with the full back starting the first of those matches, while in the second he came off the bench in the 57th minute.

Meanwhile, first-year professional Lewis Coulton took part in a week’s training camp with Scotland's U19s at Fleetwood Town's Poolfoot Farm.
