Winning Start For New England U21 Boss

Last updated : 14 September 2021 By Three Lions

Lee Carsley saw his side ease past Kosovo last week in their opening game under his charge and also their first on the road to qualifying for the 2023 European Championships.

A crowd of 5,781 in Milton Keynes watched first-half goals from Rhian Brewster of Sheffield United and Manchester City's Cole Palmer secure a comfortable victory.

Carsley told Sky Sports after the game that he expected something of a 'scruffy' display given the majority of his team had not played together before.

"It's effectively like a pre-season game for us."

England's next home game in the qualifying group is against the Czech Republic on Thursday 11 November and the 7pm kick-off will be held at Burnley's Turf Moor with tickets on sale from the FA Ticketing page priced at £15 for adults and £5 for concessions with discounts for Burnley FC season ticket holders and groups of 10 or more.

There is also the chance for fans in Chesterfield to watch England in action as the U20's host Italy on Thursday 7 October, again a 7pm kick-off.

Tickets for this one are available from Chesterfield FC and priced at £5 adults and £2.50 for concessions and under 16's.
