Stuart Pearce's England Under-21s will return to action next month with a match at Wolverhampton Wanderers' Molineux Stadium.
Fresh from a 3-0 victory over the Republic of Ireland on Tuesday, the U21s will be taking on Poland on Tuesday 25 March. Tickets for the game are priced just £10 for adults and £5 concessions.
Victory over Ireland has left the Under-21s all but certain of qualification for the European Championship play-offs.
Competition is fierce for places in Pearce's side and the young players will be looking to stake their claim in the match at Molineux. Wolves winger Michael Kightly will be among those hoping to be named in the squad on his home soil.
Pearce said: "Interest in the Under-21s is extremely high at the moment and that's shown by us playing in front of sell-out crowds in our last two games in Milton Keynes and Southampton. We'd be delighted to see a full house at Molineux next month, it's a stadium I always enjoy visiting with a passionate crowd.
"We believe the result against Ireland will mean we have enough points to qualify for the play-offs but we won't be taking our foot off the pedal now. We have up to 30 players now all pushing for a place in this team and everyone is fighting for a spot.
"With players like Gabby Agbonlahor being called up to the senior squad, the players know that they can make that step up if they do well for the Under-21s."
England top their qualifying group for the 2009 European Under-21 Championship after recording six wins and a draw from their seven games. Their one remaining qualifier will be against Portugal in September. In preparation for this game, the match against Poland next month will be followed by a friendly against Wales in Wrexham on Thursday 15 May and a further fixture in August.
The two-legged play-offs will be held in October with the Under-21s aiming to secure a place in next summer's Finals in Sweden. Pearce's team reached the semi-finals of the 2007 European Championship losing out narrowly on penalties to the hosts and eventual winners Holland.
England's Under-21s will play at Molineux for the third time. Most recently, England took on Poland in a goal-less draw at the stadium in 1996. England have faced Poland 14 times at Under-21 level, recording seven wins and three draws. The last meeting was a 4-1 victory for the Young Lions at Hillsborough in 2005.
Tickets will go on sale on Thursday 14 February for the match on Tuesday 25 March. Kick off is 7.00pm. Tickets, priced £10 adults and £5 concessions, will be available from the Wolves Ticket Office on 0871 880 8433 or via www.wolves.co.uk
