England Under-21s will face Germany in Tuesday’s European Championship semi-final.

The Young Lions had to wait until Saturday evening to find out their opponents in the last four, after finishing top of their own group with a victory over Poland on Thursday.

And they can now tailor their preparations knowing that they will meet Germany in Tychy, after Stefan Kuntz’s side qualified for the semi-final as the best second-placed team following a 1-0 defeat to Italy on Saturday evening in their final Group C game.

The two sides are already mildly familiar with each other, after meeting in a pre-Euro friendly in Wiesbaden back in March.

Germany edged that game by a single goal, a first-half strike from Hoffenheim’s Nadiem Amiri, in a fixture which saw both teams experimenting with their squads during the build-up to Poland 2017.

The game will be the first of Tuesday’s two semi-final games, kicking-off at 5pm BST with Spain meeting Italy in Krakow later that evening.

Aidy Boothroyd’s squad arrived at their new base in Krakow on Friday, after previously playing all three of their group games in Kielce.

Following a free day for the players on Saturday, it’s back to work on Sunday with a training session planned for the squad as they turn their attentions to Tuesday’s game.
