Charlton's England links

With Ezri Konza the latest Charlton academy product to appear in an England shirt, it is a good time to review what our Academy achieves: 

Former Charlton chief executive Peter Varney recalls: 'Very moving interview with Sven Goran Eriksson tonight [on Channel 4] that was tinged with sadness. He was a regular visitor to The Valley and was always excellent company along with Tord Grip and gave Chris Powell and Luke Young their England debuts. A genuinely nice and warm person.'

David White adds: 'Couldn’t agree more, Peter. He told me many times how he loved the atmosphere at the club and in the boardroom.'
