England men’s Under-21s have discovered who they will face in the qualifying round for the 2025 UEFA European Under-21 Championship.
There will be 52 teams looking to secure one of the 15 spots alongside hosts Slovakia, with matches taking place between March 2023 and November 2024.
Teams were classified on the basis of the coefficient ranking system and separated into six pots, with England in Pot 1.
There are seven groups of six teams and two groups of five, with the nine group winners and the three best runners-up (not counting results against sixth-placed teams) qualifying directly for the Finals in 2025.
The other six runners-up will then take part in two-legged play-offs for the remaining three spots in November 2024.
