ENGLAND MU21S WILL PLAY THEIR REMAINING HOME U21 EURO QUALIFIERS AT HOME OF WOLVES

England MU21s will return to action on home soil with three autumn fixtures at Molineux Stadium in October and November.

The Young Lions are in pole position to qualify for the 2021 UEFA U21 EURO Championship and will welcome Turkey, Andorra and Albania to the home of Wolverhampton Wanderers for their three remaining home qualifiers.

Earlier this month, Aidy Boothroyd’s squad won 6-0 in Kosovo before a 2-1 victory away to Austria to stay on track for the next stage of the tournament, with a 100 per cent record at the top of qualifying group 3 after six games.

After an away fixture in Andorra on Wednesday 7 October, Molineux will host Turkey on Tuesday 13 October (7.30pm BST) before Andorra arrive on Friday 13 November (7.30pm BST kick-off) and the group concludes with the visit of Albania on Tuesday 17 November (kick-off TBC). All three fixtures will be broadcast live on BT Sport.

With fans currently not permitted in stadiums due to COVID-19 guidelines, the decision was taken to stage the remaining three home qualifiers at one venue, although trials are taking place across sport that could lead to supporters being able to return in the near future.

We remain committed to working with the Government and should the situation change, then supporters will be notified.

Molineux is a popular home for the Young Lions with the last MU21s’ fixture at the stadium coming in March 2018 when goals from Demarai Gray and Jake Clarke-Salter helped ensure a 2-1 victory over Romania in the Cyrille Regis International.

The venue also hosted a memorable 2-1 win against Croatia in the first leg of a 2015 U21 EURO qualifying play-off in 2014 and a goalless draw against Poland in 2008.
