Wanderers To Host England U21s!

england u21s

Wanderers are to host England men's under-21s in a UEFA U21 EURO qualifier in March.

The Young Lions will face Luxembourg at the Toughsheet Community Stadium on Tuesday, 26th March (KO 7pm).

England will be back in action for the first time in 2024 when they face their next set of games in the race to qualify for the U21 EURO Finals in Slovakia in the summer of 2025.

And following their trip to face Azerbaijan on Friday, 21st March, Lee Carsley’s squad - which is currently second to Ukraine in Group F - will return to home soil for their second game of the international window which will be staged at Wanderers.

It will be the first time England MU21s have played a game at the Whites' home ground since September 2002, when the Young Lions shared a 1-1 draw with Yugoslavia*. Shaun Wright-Phillips scored the goal that day, in a team containing the likes of future full internationals Jermain Defoe, Jermaine Jenas, Michael Carrick and Gareth Barry.

The fixture could also see a return to Bolton for England goalkeeper James Trafford, who spent a successful 18 months on loan with Wanderers from Manchester City between January 2022 and May 2023.

England kicked-off their campaign last September against Luxembourg, when goals from Liam Delap, Cole Palmer and Callum Doyle secured a 3-0 win in Differdange.
