Normality was restored to English football yesterday when another Leeds prospect was selected for England duty.
Ronaldo Vieira has been called up for the England Under 20 team for this summers Toulon tournament, a prestigious event that showcases some of Europes emerging elite.
The Leeds youngster, who was signed from the i2i academy and handed his debut by Steve Evans last season had a choice of which nationality to play under; having been eligible for Guinea-Bissau, Portugal or England.
Vieira, who has risen to be a key player for Leeds this season under Garry Monk and has come on leaps and bounds over the season, making 38 appearances in all competitions and this could be the next step in his progression at Elland Road.
I believe that the 18-year old will come back with a better understanding of how young footballers in England progress and also having witnessed a different style of football to the rough and tumble of the Championship.
There's no doubt in my mind that Vieira will be key to Garry Monk's plans next season and having this opportunity can only better his footballing knowledge.
Congratulations Ronaldo, it'll be nice to see the name on the back of an England shirt for once!
