England men's under-19s will travel to Walsall, Rotherham and Chesterfield in coming weeks to take on the Republic of Ireland, Armenia and Portugal

Ian Foster has named the England men’s under-19 squad he hopes will secure U19 EURO Finals qualification this month.

England host their 2022 UEFA U19 EURO elite round qualification group in March, with games against Armenia, Portugal and Republic of Ireland taking place as each side bids to qualify for this summer’s Finals in Slovakia. 

The Young Lions’ elite round qualifying will begin against the Republic of Ireland at Walsall on Wednesday 23 March (7.30pm kick-off), before a trip to Rotherham United to face Armenia on Saturday 26 March (2pm kick-off).

The Young Lions will then hope to cement their qualification when then take on Portugal at Chesterfield on Tuesday 29 March (7.30pm kick-off).

Foster has selected a 21-man squad for the triple-header, with several players who have featured for their senior Premier League side included.

Midfielder Tim Iroegbunam’s progression into the Aston Villa first team has seen him promoted to the MU19s, along with Arsenal youngster Brooke Norton-Cuffy, who is playing regularly on loan at Lincoln City, and Liverpool defender Jarell Quansah.
