Jarell Quansah, a Liverpool academy defender, was named in Ian Foster’s 23-man squad for the U20 World Cup in Argentina. On Monday evening, Quansah took his place in the starting lineup as part of a back three, with Liverpool target Alex Scott in midfield. The game was decided by a first-half goal from Tottenham striker Dane Scarlett, with Quansah playing the full 90 minutes in La Plata. Scott, who is being tracked by Liverpool scouts ahead of a possible move from Bristol City, also played the whole game, and his interchange with Alfie Devine almost led to a second goal from Daniel Jebbison late on. England won the game 1-0 and are second in Group E behind Uruguay, who thrashed Iraq 4-0 in their opening game. Quansah played 16 times for Bristol Rovers this season, starting 15 of those games, and was a key member of the U19 Euros squad last summer. Another Liverpool defender, Luke Chambers, was also called up to the World Cup but turned down the invitation as he focuses on a relegation battle on loan at Kilmarnock.
