Witness the next exciting crop of England’s young, fearless players in action in Burnley for their UEFA U21 EURO qualifier against the Czech Republic (kick-off 7 p.m.).

It will be the third occasion Burnley has welcomed the Under 21s, after previous fixtures against Portugal in 2014 and Latvia in 1995 - Burnley were due to host the game against Turkey in March 2020 before it was postponed.

Carsley’s side started their qualifying campaign against Kosovo in Milton Keynes in September, winning 2-0, before a 2-2 draw in Slovenia and 1-0 win in Andorra in October.

The Group G schedule continues in Burnley, with England’s first meeting with the Czechs at this age group since a 1-0 away victory in 2015.

In addition to hosting the Under 21s, Turf Moor has a rich history of hosting international fixtures including the Under 20s in 2005 - in a game won with a Richard Chaplow goal, with Gary Cahill also in the side - a rare men’s B international in 2007 against Albania, remembered for the performance of Besart Berisha, which earned a move to Burnley, and senior men’s and women’s matches

In 1927, Jack Hill and goalscorer Louis Page played in a 2-1 defeat to Wales in the Home Championship, and in 2003, Burnley-born Rachel Brown was in goal for the Lionesses against Australia.
