England men's under-21s put in their final EURO preparations on home soil before setting off for Slovenia earlier this week.

The Young Lions face Switzerland, Portugal and Croatia in the group stage of the 2021 UEFA U21 EURO Finals, which have been split in two this campaign.

Only two nations from each of the four groups of four who are out in Hungary and Slovenia will progress into the knockout stage, which will see them return in May and June to contest the quarter-finals, semi-finals and the final.

And Aidy Boothroyd's squad were hard at work at St. George's Park earlier this week, before travelling to Slovenia on Tuesday afternoon ahead of Thursday's opener with Switzerland (2pm GMT, live on Sky Sports).

They will then face Portugal on Sunday 28 March (8pm GMT, live on Sky Sports) before the group finale with Croatia takes place on Wednesday 31 March (5pm GMT, live on Sky Sports).

Our cameras were at the national football centre in Burton to see the squad in training too, so watch via the media player above or below.
