England’s group opponents will be Guinea, Brazil and South Korea at showpiece this Autumn.

The Young Lions were drawn in Group B and will kick-off their campaign in Chile against the west African nation on Saturday 17 October, the tournament’s opening day.

Three days later they will take on the Samba Boys, with whom they fought out a memorable 2-2 draw in the USA last November. They conclude their group stage by lining-up against South Korea on Friday 23 October.

Due to the timing of the tournament, the England squad that qualified by defeating Spain on penalties in May will have moved up to U18s level, although they will still be eligible to participate in South America.
