England U20s 'keeper Connor Ripley answers your questions on Twitter for FATV
Connor Ripley enjoyed an evening of fan interaction on Tuesday, with the England U20s ‘keeper taking on an extended Twit-Chat.
The Middlesbrough man sat down in the squad’s Belek base to answer your questions, before being called into a team meeting.
He then returned to provide more answers on a range of topics, which were all caught by the FATV cameras.
Ripley had got into his Twitter rhythm by now and after returning to his room, he then answered more of the questions which were still filtering through to his personal account @ConnorRipley
