Reading goalkeeper Alex McCarthy won his third cap for England Under-21s during Monday's 2-1 friendly defeat to Iceland. The Royals youth product had already played 90 minutes and kept a clean sheet in the 4-0 win in Denmark last Thursday and was handed another 45 minutes against Iceland at Deepdale. Meanwhile, midfielder Ethan Gage captained Canada Under-20s to a 2-1 win over Guadeloupe in the first of a series of CONCACAF World Cup qualifiers. And Mikkel Andersen has been part of the Danish Under-21s set up over the international break, but had to be content with a place on the bench during a 2-2 draw with Ukraine.
