After the unprecedented success of England’s development teams in 2017 and interest in youth football at an all-time high, these are exciting times for the Young Lions.
The UEFA European Under-17 Championship has also provided a platform for many of Wolves’ current promotion winners to cut their teeth at a major tournament.
Alfred N’Diaye and Willy Boly were members of the France squad in 2007 and 2008 respectively while Ivan Cavaleiro and Ruben Neves were selected by Portugal in 2010 and 2014 respectively, with Neves being named in the team of the tournament.
Even more notable, however, was on-loan Benik Afobe and Conor Coady being part of the England squad that won the tournament for the first time in Lichtenstein in 2010.
Afobe was on the scoresheet in the Young Lions’ opening-game victory over the Czech Republic. After England beat Spain 2-1 in the final, the striker was also named in the team of the tournament.
