England’s Men’s Under 20s (MU20s) head to Colchester United FC tomorrow night (Tuesday 29th March) when the Young Lions welcome Germany, with a 7:30pm kick-off at the JobServe Community Stadium.
Four days after the MU20s’ trip to Poland, where they slipped to a 2-0 defeat in Bielsko-Biala following two second-half goals, Essex fans can now look forward to welcoming the squad for their next prestige fixture. Since the start of the 2021/22 season, Andy Edwards’ side have comfortably beaten Romania and the Czech Republic, drawn with Italy and lost to Portugal.
Edwards said: “I know Colchester is a venue that has served England teams well in the past, with various men’s development and women’s fixtures having been staged there successfully. We look forward to returning to Essex with another exciting crop of Young Lions. As all England fans know, a fixture against Germany always stirs excitement, and this occasion will be no different.”
