Manchester United add two academy graduates to Champions League squad: report

Manchester United have added Angel Gomes and Ethan Hamilton to their Champions League squad, with the pair being named on the B list, reports The Sun.

A player can be included in the squad if he was born after January 1, 1996 and has been eligible to play for the club for two uninterrupted years since their 15th birthday. As a result, both Gomes and Hamilton are eligible.

Gomes has featured for the u19s in the UEFA Youth League this season, although United were recently eliminated from the competition, suffering a defeat to Liverpool in the last-16. He’s an attacking midfielder who’s represented England at u16, u17 and u18 level and has a bright future.

The highly-rated 17-year-old has two first-team appearances for the Red Devils and has been in the matchday squad in the FA Cup. Gomes started the campaign playing in the u18 Premier League before featuring in the Premier League 2 for the u23s in 2018.

As for Hamilton, the 19-year-old has also been a regular in the Youth League, making eight appearances, and is a familiar face in United’s u23s. He’s yet to make his first-team debut for the Red Devils but did make the bench in United’s FA Cup fifth round win over Huddersfield.
