England drawn with neighbours in qualifying group for Euro 2015
England will line up against neighbours Wales for a place at the 2015 UEFA European Under-21 Championship in Czech Republic.
Three Lions Coach Stuart Pearce took time out of his schedule preparing his side for this summer's Finals in Israel to be at the draw for the next qualifying campaign.
And he saw the Three Lions placed in a six-team group alongside the Welsh, Finland, Moldova, Lithuania and San Marino.
With the Czech hosts already gauranteed a place in the last eight, there were 52 nations in Thursday's draw in Nyon who were split into five pots – England were among the top-seeds in Pot A – and were drawn into ten qualifying groups.
As usual, the ten group winners and the four best runners-up will earn a place in the play-offs to determine the seven sides destined for the showpiece event alongside the hosts.
However, qualifying fixtures won't start until August at the earliest for the Three Lions. For them, Italy, Israel, Norway, Germany, Spain, Russia and Holland, their is first the matter of the 2013 Finals in June to concern themselves with.
And on Tuesday night Pearce's side continue their preparations for this summer against Sweden in Walsall.
