Two young City stars will be heading down South America way for the Under 20 World Cup in a few weeks time.
Defender Reece Wabara, who made his senior City debut in the final game of 2010/11 at Bolton, and striker Alex Tchuimeni-Nimely have been named in the England squad that will head for Colombia in late July.
Alex already has some World Cup form in his locker, having scored in the 2009 Under 20 tournament, while Reece made his international bow when selected by Brian Eastick against France last February.
In a game loaded with World Cup 'previous', England will face Argentina in Medellin on 1 August, and that's not the only fixture between the two countries that could feature some young City talent. Alex Henshall and George Evans are part of the English squad preparing to face the south Americans in tonight's Under 17 World Cup last 16 clash in Pachuca, Mexico.
Follow their progress on The FA.com from 9pm UK time tonight.
