Squad for U19 Euro

England head coach Keith Downing selects 18-man party to take to Georgia

Monday 26 Jun 2017

Head coach Keith Downing has finalised his 18-man squad for next month’s European Under-19 Championship in Georgia.

The squad features six players from Chelsea, including defender Reece James who has the chance to extend a golden summer for England, having been part of the squad that won the Toulon Tournament earlier this month.

U19 Euro Fixtures
  • Group B
  • 2.30pm (BST) Monday 3 July: v Bulgaria
  • 2.30pm (BST) Thursday 6 July: v Netherlands
  • 5pm (BST) Sunday 9 July: v Germany

The Young Lions, twice U19 Euro runners-up, kick-off their Group B campaign against Bulgaria on Monday 3 July in Tblisi.

Then Downing’s youngsters meet the Netherlands – who boasted the meanest defence in qualifying, conceding just one goal in six matches – on Thursday 6 July.

The group stage concludes against Germany, the only former winners that will appear in Georgia, on Sunday 9 July.

The top two teams from each group will progress to the semi-final stage.
