Molineux set for England under-21 action

The first of a Molineux triple header for England under-21s takes place on Tuesday evening, where qualification for next summer’s Euro 2021 Championship can be confirmed.

Aidy Boothroyd’s side welcome Turkey in the first of three ties to take place at Molineux, before Andorra and Albania visit next month, in the group's first home fixtures of 2020.

England’s youngsters are top of Group Three, having won six of their seven games to date, four points ahead of their closest challenges Austria, with a far superior goal difference.  

However, last Wednesday, England were surprisingly pegged back in the last minute by Andorra, who earned a 3-3 draw for their efforts – the first time Boothroyd’s men had dropped points.

Last September the Young Lions beat Turkey 3-2 in Kocaeli, where England under-21s' joint record scorer Eddie Nketiah scored twice and now, should they complete the double on Tuesday, England could book their ticket for the plane to Hungary or Slovenia for next summer’s tournament.


Tuesday, 7.30pm at Molineux.


Although the contest will be played behind closed doors, England and Wolves supporters can follow the action from home, live on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport Ultimate.
