Callum Gribbin has been called up for England's Victory Shield fixture against Northern Ireland.

Gribbin scored two goals against Ajax U13s in the warm up game to Van der Sar's testimonial.

Looked a talented player based on that first game of the Slovakian tour. Similar to Wilson in style, very good balance and quick feet.

Impressive video, even more impressive given he's only 15. Reminded me of Januzaj in the way he moved with the ball.

He is doing good for a 15 year old to be playing with the U18's, hope to see more of him as the season goes on

Was at the away Blackburn Academy game today and this lad has tonnes of potential, I was very impressed with his all round game

Blackburns academy teams seem to have done pretty well over recent years. I would like to get to more of the games myself but struggle for time. I will take in the leighlife sports village games as it is in walking distance for me

Watching that made me realise just how impressive he was, there were a few passes or skills I didn't realise were him while watching the game the other night as I had the game on low volume.

His vision is really good. Defence splitting through balls between the centre half and full back particularly.

Good news that. Lots still to work on but an exciting prospect. Glides with the ball at feet, bit like Ravel in that aspect.
