West Ham youngsters Reece Oxford and Sam Howes play for England U19’s tonight LIVE on Eurosport 1 at 6.30pm. Unfortunately, both Hammers remain on the bench as they did not make the starting line-up.
After the failure of England’s senior side at Euro 2016, attention turns to the U19 side who will be aiming for European Championship success in Germany.
England face France tonight in Group B in the tournament in the Arena Heidenheim, Heidenheim followed by the Netherlands on the 15th July at the Donaustadion, Ulm.
Their final Group B game is against the young Croatian team on Monday 18th July at Arena Heidenheim again.
The first and second placed sides from Group A and B will progress to the semi-finals on Thursday 21st July before the final on Sunday 24th July at Arena Sinsheim, Sinsheim.
Let’s hope Reece and Howes can do better than the English senior team did at the Euros. Update: England beat France 2-1 in their opening game.
