England's U20s have faced Netherlands, Switzerland, Italy and Czech Republic so far this season

England U20s are back in action in November with a trip to Germany for Keith Downing’s Young Lions.

Germany v England

But it’s set to be one of the toughest of their campaign as they travel to Zwickau in eastern Germany for the game.
