England Under-21s will face their penultimate Euro Qualifier
with Kazakhstan in the city of Aktobe next month.

Gareth Southgate’s squad will make the longest trip of their campaign so far for the game, which will be played at the Tsentralniy (Central) Stadium, home of FC Aktobe, on Thursday 6 October.

UEFA European U21 Championship
Group 9 Qualifier
4pm (BST), Thursday 6 October 2016
Central Stadium, Aktobe

The venue holds 13,500 fans and FC Aktobe are renowned as one of the best-supported clubs in the Kazakhstan Premier League.

And the Three Lions know that a victory over their hosts in that game will be enough to secure top spot in Group 9 and automatic qualification for next summer’s Euro Finals in Poland, with a match to spare.

Earlier this month, Southgate's team took another step towards the Finals with a 6-1 victory over Norway in Colchester where a hat-trick from Marcus Rashford and goals from Nathaniel Chalobah, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Lewis Baker secured an impressive scoreline.

Our final group match follows a few days after the trip to Kazakhstan and takes place on home soil on Tuesday 11 October, when Bosnia & Herzegovina are the visitors to the Banks’s Stadium in Walsall.
