England Under-21s to face Wales at Liberty Stadium

Thursday 17 Apr 2014
Swansea City's Liberty Stadium will host England v Wales

England Under-21s will make the short trip across the border for their Euro qualifier with Wales next month.

Gareth Southgate’s side currently sit top of Group One in the race for the Euro Finals in Czech Republic next summer, with just three games remaining in their group schedule.

And they will be in action at a Premier League venue on Monday 19 May, as the game is being hosted at Swansea City’s Liberty Stadium.

The two nations met as recently as March, when a goal from Nathan Redmond was enough to secure a 1-0 victory over Geraint Williams’ team at Derby County’s iPro Stadium.

England’s visit to Wales will be followed by the Toulon Tournament in southern France, where the Three Lions will face Brazil, Colombia, Qatar and Korean Republic.

Southgate will name a 30-man squad for the Wales game next month, with those players who are too old to compete in Toulon dispersing after the match in Swansea.

England have now played all of their home games in Euro qualifying, with two more away games remaining after May’s match in Wales.

They include an away double-header in September with trips to Lithuania on Friday 5 September and then Moldova on Tuesday 9 September.

After that, the seven nations who have qualified from the groups stages will be paired together in the Play-Offs, with only eight nations competing in the Finals in Czech Republic.

Tickets for the game are available now from the Liberty Stadium ticket office on 0844 815 6665, priced at £5 for adults and £2 for senior citizens. Any fans planning to buy on matchday are advised to arrive at the ground in plenty of time to avoid potential queues.
