England will face Chile, Iraq and the African Under 20 Championship winners in the FIFA U20 World Cup group stage in Turkey.
The Young Lions have landed a mixed group where they’ll be looking to beat Iraq but will face stiff competition from Chile. They will be joined by the champions of the current African Youth Championship, who will also provide a fierce test.
