Luton Town defender James Justin made his full debut for the England U20s during last night's 0-0 draw with Switzerland.

The young right back was one of nine changes to the side that had beaten Holland 3-0 on Thursday, in which the Hatters' academy product had got on for the last 16 minutes.

However, Justin was in from the start for the clash played in Winterthur, as was former Town starlet Jay DaSilva.

Wolfsburg's Kaylen Hinds came as close to anyone to breaking the deadlock early in the second half when, after DaSilva’s brilliant dribble, he shot against the crossbar from the edge of the penalty area.

However, Switzerland came back into the game as Janjicic Vasilije and then Manzambi Neftali both shot into keeper Aaron Ramsdale’s side-netting.

Justin was replaced just after the hour mark by Manchester City's Demeaco Duhaney and will now hope to win selection for the matches against Italy and Czech Republic next month.
