Erico In International Action

26 March 2014

Reds youngster Erico Sousa was in international action last week for Portugal Under 19s.

The first-year professional, who graduated from the Academy last season, made his début for the Under 19s against Qatar in a preparation fixture.

After featuring as a 53rd minute substitute, going on to help his side secure a 1-0 victory, Erico told barnsleyfc.co.uk "I've always dreamed of playing on the international stage.

"Playing with great players from different teams was great and the type of football was really good.

"I thought I did okay. Hopefully they'll call me to come back."

A skilful, attacking midfielder, Erico has featured regularly for the Under 21s this season.
