Young Lions to continue their U20 World Cup preparations at the Academy Stadium next month


England men's under-20s will host Germany at the Manchester City Academy Stadium on Wednesday 22 March (7.30pm GMT kick-off).

Ian Foster’s age group are preparing for this year’s FIFA U20 World Cup in Indonesia, having qualified as U19 European champions last summer.

And Germany will be the first opponents of a three-match March camp for the Young Lions, before they look to shine on the world stage in the late summer.

After the Germany fixture, the MU20s squad will then head to the Marbella Football Centre in Spain to take on fellow finalists USA (Saturday 25 March) and France (Tuesday 28 March).

The draw for the U20 World Cup is due to be staged in Bali on 31 March with eight qualifiers from Asia and Africa still to be determined in the forthcoming international window.
