West Ham youth players continue to get called up for national tournaments as the Hammers youth system continues to shine. Domingos Quina and Nathan Trott have both been called up for the U-19 UEFA European Championship in July.

This comes on the heels of Declan Rice and Martin Samuelson being called up to their full national teams earlier this summer.

Quina had been training with the West Ham first team for much of the last half of the season and was particularly impressive in PL2 this year. He is widely expected to go out on loan next season as Slaven Bilic looks to continue the young Portuguese midfielder’s growth.

Trott is a highly talked about keeper who will likely become the No. 1 youth keeper in the West Ham system. The departure of Sam Howes and Raphael Spiegel should pave the way for Trott to become the keeper of the future at West Ham.

Hammers fans will be disappointed that promising young defender Reece Oxford did not make the England U-19 team, however, given he’s moving to a new country it might be better that he not take part in the competition.

Hopefully this tournament gives some of the West Ham youth a chance to shine and prove to Slaven and the David’s that maybe they should get a shot at the West Ham first team.
