And welcome to the live blog for England U21 vs Portugal U21!
Tonight’s game is a must-win for Aidy Boothroyd’s young Three Lions, after losing the Euro U21 Championship group stage opener against Switzerland.
And to make tonight’s game even more important, Croatia are currently beating Switzerland 1-0, leaving England the only team in Group D without a point.
Their opponents, on the other hand, got off to a winning start as they comfortably beat Croatia.
In terms of team news, Boothroyd could stick with the starting XI that started against Switzerland.
The U21s boss has a host of talent at his disposal and he needs to get a tune out of his team.
The likes of Max Aarons, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Dwight McNeil, Eddie Nketiah and Emile Smith Rowe all started in the tournament opener and all have Premier League experience.
As for Portugal, they’ll most likely stick with a winning formula. A win all-but confirms their place in the knockout stages.
