Leeds United defender Charlie Cresswell is set to feature for the Young Lions later this month, as they compete in the group stages of the Euro finals.
This year’s competition – which will take place in Georgia and Romania – will see the England Under-21s face Czech Republic, Israel and Germany in their group games. The top two sides in each group will progress to the quarter-final knockout stages of the contest.
England’s campaign begins on Thursday 22nd June when they take on Czech Republic, a team which they beat twice during their Euro qualifying campaign.
This is followed by a clash with Israel on Sunday 25th June, with a game against Germany on Wednesday 28th June bringing the group stages to a close.
Cresswell spent last season on loan at Millwall where he made 30 appearances in all competitions, his time at the London club being brought to a premature end after injuring his eye socket.
Despite the fact he was unable to assist his side to a Championship play-off place after the Lions suffered a crushing final day home defeat to Blackburn, Cresswell’s 5 goals and quality performances at centre-back quickly made him a fan favourite at The Den.
The 20-year-old already has 9 caps for England Under-21s, and will be hoping to get their upcoming campaign off to a positive start with a win against Czech Republic on the 22nd.
