England midfielder Matthew James knows they will be in for a tough game when they take on Scotland on Monday night.
The Manchester United player comes up against the Auld Enemy for the first time in his international career at Bramall Lane, as the Young Lions look to get the result which will take them to the European Championship Finals in Ukraine this July.
James, 17, is still a year young for the U19s, but has slotted into the midfield with ease over the last two games which saw victories over Bosnia-Herzegovina and Slovakia and he’s now ready for the third and final match with England knowing that if they avoid defeat against Billy Stark’s side, it will be them who progress.
“There’s a bit of rivalry there, it’s going to be on television so it should be a good game with both teams looking to go through,” James told TheFA.com.
“Given the situation, there will be a bit of pressure riding on the game but there are a few of us who have been in pressure situations before and I think we can deal with that.
“Every team wants to play and beat England, we know that as a country and as a team but if we concentrate we can get a result I’m sure.”You can be there to cheer on the Young Lions, call the Bramall Lane Box Office now on 0871 995 1889.
