The finals also act as a qualification mechanism for the FIFA U20 World Cup, which takes place in New Zealand in June 2015.

To secure qualification for the U20 World Cup, England must first qualify for the U19s finals, and then finish among the top six in UEFA's annual tournament.

Noel Blake's side secured their place in the Elite Round after finishing top of their First Qualifying Round in Slovenia last September.

They were last in action in March, when they beat Turkey by 3-0 in Chester.

Tickets are now on sale for games at both venues, priced at £3 for adults and £1 for concessions.
