Lee Carsley has made his pick for Young Lions' four games in June as they target MU21 EURO qualification
England men’s under-21s are back in action this summer with four games in their UEFA U21 EURO qualifying group.
Lee Carsley’s side face Czech Republic, Kosovo, Albania and Slovenia in June and the head coach has named a 24-strong squad for the games which all come in the space of ten days.
The squad remains largely similar to the one selected for duty in March which saw the Young Lions collect wins over both Andorra and Albania, but there’s a return to the group for both Ryan Sessegnon and Emile Smith Rowe.
England go into June’s fixtures sat in second place in their qualifying group, but face a mouth-watering first game against top-spot Czech Republic on Friday 3 June to kick-off their schedule.
