Greg Lincoln's Young Lions are in Cyprus for the 2024 UEFA U17 EURO Finals this month


England men’s under-17s kick-off their UEFA U17 EURO Finals campaign this week, with a 21-man squad named ahead of the competition in Cyprus.

Young Lions head coach Greg Lincoln selected his players following a training camp at St. George’s Park before they arrived at their EURO base in Cyprus.

After emerging through two qualification rounds this season, winning five of their six games, England are one of 16 teams in the Finals which take place between 20 May and 5 June.

They play three group stage games, starting against France at the Ammochostos Epistrofi Stadium, in Larnaca on Tuesday evening (6.30pm BST).

Next up is a clash with Portugal at the same venue on Friday 24 May (6.30pm BST), before they take on Spain at the Antonis Papadopoulos Stadium in Larnaca on Monday 27 May (6.30pm BST) in their final group match.

With four groups involved, the top two nations from each group will progress to the knockout stages, which begin with quarter-finals on 29 and 30 May. Beyond that, the semi-finals will be held on 2 June before the Final takes place on 5 June.

“We’re delighted to have qualified for the UEFA Men’s Under 17s European Championships and are really looking forward to the tournament kicking off," said Lincoln, from the squad's base in Ayia Napa.

"For our players to represent England at a European Finals is a moment in their careers that they will remember forever.

"We would like to thank all clubs for their support with player selection and this will undoubtedly be a great development opportunity for all involved.

"The chance to play at a European Finals isn’t something that happens often. The players are committed to giving their best and taking as much learning out of this experience as possible.

"It’s a pivotal time in their careers, and opportunities such as this will play a huge role in their growth as individuals.”
