Young Lions Learn Fate in European Under 19 Championship Draw

Noel Blake will be eager to show Europe what his young lions are made of.

England will face France, Croatia and Serbia in the European Under 19 Championship, which kicks off in July.

Hosts Estonia will meet the holders Spain as well as Portugal and Greece.

England will be glad to avoid Spain, who always pose a constant threat at this level. But they must be wary about the challenge that the French will pose to their bid of winning this year’s tournament.

The tournament begins on the 3rd July with two groups of four teams with the top two sides progressing to the semi-finals. The top three placed teams in each group will automatically qualify for next year’s FIFA Under 20 World Cup, so everything is up for grabs.

The Lillekula Stadium in Tallin will be host to the final which takes place on Sunday 15th July.
