THE YOUNG LIONS ARE HEADING TO STAFFORDSHIRE!
The grassroots community in Staffordshire will soon have a great opportunity to watch the next generation of England stars in action, with Aidy Boothroyd's England Under-21s side set to face Andorra at the home of Stoke City on Thursday 26 March (7.45pm KO).
In what will be the first of two key UEFA European U21 Championship qualifiers in March, the Young Lions will face Andorra at bet365 Stadium before taking on Turkey at Turf Moor in Burnley on Monday 30 March (7.45pm KO).
England sit top of qualifying Group 3 with four wins in four. In their opening fixture the Young Lions beat Turkey 3-2 in a closely-contested game away in Izmit, with Eddie Nketiah scoring twice and Reiss Nelson sealing the win.
Stoke City chief executive Tony Scholes said: “We are proud to have been chosen to host the UEFA Under 21 Championship qualifier between England and Andorra.
“We look forward to welcoming fans from both countries to the bet365 Stadium and showcasing Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire.”
