Swindon Town Academy's Botan Ameen earns Iraq U20s call up

Young forward called up for international youth side for the first time after impressive performances

14 May 2024

Swindon Town Academy forward Botan Ameen has received his first call-up to the Iraq U20 side following an impressive 2023/24 campaign.

Ameen has been called up to the national youth side following a strong showing in 2023/24, which saw him score regularly in both the Youth Alliance League and Merit League One, as well as scoring three goals in four games in the FA Youth Cup that saw Town U18s reach the quarter-final stage for the first time in a number of years.

The young forward has been invited to a training camp to prepare for the upcoming AFC U20 Asia Cup 2025 Qualifiers with Iraq U20s, as he looks to make his first international appearances for his country later this year.

His performances have also seen him training on numerous occasions with Town's first team, as he now looks to an exciting next step on the international stage over the next few weeks.

Good luck, Botan!
