    England to face Israel, Italy and Switzerland at Under-17 Euro Finals


    Final arrangements have been made for the upcoming UEFA Under-17 European Championships held in England during May 2018.

    These championships have in the past seen players such as Thierry Henry, Sergio Ramos, Mario Gotze, Cristiano Ronaldo, Luis Figo, Wayne Rooney and Cesc Fabregas start to make their way on the international stage.

    England U17s will kick-off the U17 Euro Finals on home soil against Israel, following Thursday’s draw.

    All 16 nations involved in the Euro Finals, which takes place across the Midlands and South Yorkshire next month, were involved in the draw at St. George’s Park.

    Steve Cooper’s Young Lions head up Group A alongside Switzerland, Italy and Israel with their first game taking place at Chesterfield FC on Friday 4 May.

    Their second game will be against Italy at Walsall on Monday 7 May, before they head to Rotherham on Thursday 10 May for their final group match against the Swiss.

    The draw was made by England’s record goalscorer and tournament ambassador Wayne Rooney, who played in this tournament in Denmark back in 2002, and UEFA’s youth and amateur football committee chairman John Delaney.

    Three more venues at Burton Albion, Loughborough University and St. George’s Park will host fixtures from the four groups before the competition progresses to the quarter-final and semi-final stages.

    The final will be played at Rotherham United on Sunday 20 May.
