Man City kid Tutte assured of England future

England U19 boss Brian Eastick says he won't dump Manchester City midfielder Andrew Tutte.

England U19 boss Brian Eastick says he won't dump Manchester City midfielder Andrew Tutte.

The City midfielder, 18, was sent off just five minutes into his international debut in Tuesday’s one-sided 3-0 defeat to Spain at Bournemouth.

Tutte, an FA Youth Cup winner with City last season, was clearly upset with his red card for a high tackle on Raul Ruiz so shortly after replacing Everton star Dan Gosling.

But Eastick said: “Andrew still has a future with England as he’s only a young lad but there would be a question mark against him should he repeat that.

“If he carries on playing well for Manchester City we will continue to monitor him and he will certainly be in the frame.”
