Every match broadcast live only on Sky Sports</em>
England’s best and brightest young talents are off to Euro 2019 this summer – catch the whole tournament only on Sky Sports.
While England’s senior side head to Portugal for the Nations League finals, which you can also watch live on Sky Sports, Aidy Boothroyd’s U21s travel to Italy and San Marino looking to bring home the European U21 Championship for the first time since 1984.
When are England’s games?
England are in Group C and kick-off their tournament against joint-second favourites France in Cesena at 8pm on Tuesday live on Sky Sports Football. 13 goals have been scored in the last three games between the sides.
The Young Lions are back at the same ground five days later when they face Romania, competing in their first U21 European Championships since 1998, on June 21 at 5.30pm, and then travel to San Marino’s national stadium for their final group game with Croatia, whose senior side knocked England out of last summer’s World Cup, at 8pm on June 24.
Who will be in the England team?
Leicester duo James Maddison and Harvey Barnes, Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden, Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Fulham winger Ryan Sessegnon were all named among Boothroyd’s recruits on the plane to Italy.
Maddison in particular was a surprise absence from Gareth Southgate’s full England squad for the Nations League earlier this month, but the Three Lions boss said: “It will be good for them to get that tournament experience again. We think, for them, that is the next stage of their development.”

Presenter David Prutton will also be joined in the Sky Sports studio by expert pundits Liam Rosenior, Jamie O’Hara and others across the tournament, with Guy Havord and Adam Smith keeping you up-to-date with all the latest from inside the England camp every day on Sky Sports News.
When’s the final?
The final will be held in Udinese’s 25,144-capacity Stadio Friuli at 7.45pm on June 30.
How does the tournament work?
There are three groups of four teams in Italy and San Marino – but as four will qualify for the semi-finals, the three group winners will be joined by one best-placed nation who finish second in their group.
If the best-placed runner up is from Group A, they will play the winner of Group B, but if they come from either Group B or Group C, they will play the winner from Group A.
