Norwich City trio Abu Kamara, Kellen Fisher and Brad Hills were all in action this afternoon as England U20s beat Sweden 2-1. 

Attacking midfielder Kamara and right back Fisher were both handed starts as they made their international debuts, with Hills a second half substitute in the clash in Croatia.

It bookends impressive campaigns for loan exports Kamara and Hills, who suitably impressed during loan spells at League One title winners Portsmouth and Accrington Stanley respectively. 

England ran out 2-1 victors in the clash, with Leicester winger Will Alves opening the scoring in the first half. Former Ipswich Town loanee Dane Scarlett doubled their advantage in the second period. 

Sweden netted a late consolation through Hammarby striker Deniz Gul, but it wasn’t enough to save the result. 

They played in an England side that included Jobe Bellingham, West Ham’s highly rated George Earthy and Tottenham striker Scarlett. 

Kamara played 66 minutes before being replaced by Millwall winger Romain Esse. Fisher was also substituted at the same stage for Roman Dixon. 

Hills replaced highly-rated Blackburn Rovers youngster Ben Chrisene just seven minutes prior to the City duo coming off. 

The trio will feature again for Ben Futcher’s side against Ireland on Tuesday. 

It marks the start of a big summer for the returning City duo, with places up for grabs in pre-season under new head coach Johannes Hoff Thorup, who is expected to integrate more youth as he starts his Canaries project. 

Kamara returns to Carrow Road hoping to build on a title winning campaign at Fratton Park where he played a key role in John Mousinho’s side winning the third tier title. 

Norwich are hoping for Kamara to make an impact in their squad in the Championship next season having scored 10 and assisted 11 in 51 matches for Pompey in all competitions.

Hills will also be in contention for a place in Thorup’s squad having won player of the season at the Wham Stadium, impressing on his first loan away from Norfolk. 

The boyhood City fan will be competing with other returning defenders Emmanuel Adegboyega, Jaden Warner and Jonathan Tomkinson for inclusion in the squad next season. 

City’s first team squad return for pre-season testing later this month.
