Each international break is the opportunity for several players who took part in the Maurice Revello Tournament to make their international debut. Over the last days, some of them earned their first international cap.
Harvey Barnes and Reece James (England)
We talked about Barnes and James as players to follow in Premier League this season. Maybe, we'll watch them as well at the Euro 2021 as both Leicester City attacking midfielder and Chelsea defender made their England senior debut against Wales (3-0) during this international break. James has had even the opportunity to play then the Nations League games against Belgium (2-1) and Denmark (0-1). The Maurice Revello Tournament 2017 winners seem to have a brilliant future ahead of them...
Nicolas Diaz (Chile)
Since participating at the Maurice Revello Tournament 2019, the 21-year-old defender enjoyed an astonishing rise. After making a promising debut in Liga MX since joining Mazaltan on July (10 games started, 2 goals), Diaz has been handed his first international caps with La Roja during the World Cup 2022 qualifiers. Diaz was included in the starting XI against Uruguay (1-2) before coming off the bench few days later against Colombia (2-2).
Bingourou Kamara (Senegal)
Runner-up of the Maurice Revello Tournament 2016 in France, the 23-year-old goalkeeper has decided to represent Senegal at the senior level. His switch of allegiance has been confirmed over the last days as Kamara made his debut with Lions de la Teranga during the friendly against Morocco (1-3). This international debut caps the current good form of Kamara who regained his spot in the Strasbourg's starting XI since the start to the season.
Dara O’Shea and Jason Knight (Ireland)
They are now six Irish youngsters to have made their international senior debut after playing the Maurice Revello Tournament 2019. After Lee O’Connor, Aaron Connolly, Adam Idah and Jayson Molumby few weeks ago, Dara O’Shea and Jason Knight benefited from this international break to make their Ireland debut.
The 21-year-old defender O'Shea started the Nations League game against Finland on Wednesday while the 19-year-old promising forward Knight came off the bench as he replaced... Molumby !
The Irish new wave seen at the Maurice Revello Tournament 2019 is starting to force its way in the Ireland senior squad.
Loïc Négo (Hungary)
Runner-up of the Maurice Revello Tournament 2011 with France, the native of Nantes made his international debut with... Hungary ! The Fehervar player is living in Hungary since more than five years and has acquired meanwhile the Hungarian citizenship. That's why he was able to represent this national team during this international break. The 29-year-old defender took part in the Nations League games against Russia (0-0) and Serbia (0-1), playing as well the Euro 2021 playoff against Bulgaria (3-1).
