He had been set to face Switzerland and the Netherlands.

Nmecha has represented his country at Under 16, 17, 18, 19 and 21 level but this would have been his first Under 20s appearance.

That means PNE’s international action rests with the Republic of Ireland, Alan Browne, Callum Robinson and Graham Burke on duty with Martin O’Neill’s side as they face Wales and Poland.
