England development players will be exposed to a comprehensive, varied and challenging games programme as early as possible in their international careers. 

A variety of European and international opposition - with fixtures against teams from each continent - will provide experience of unfamiliar conditions and surroundings.

Early exposure to a wide variety of different competitive situations and scenarios will prove crucial if our young players are to progress to senior international football.
