England U21 vs France U21 Live Stream: Watch tonight’s European Championship clash online

England’s U21s are in action at the Stadio Dino Manuzzi tonight, where they’ll face France’s U21 in their opening match of the European U21 Championship. Our guide reveals all you need to know to watch England U21 vs France U21 online whether you’re in the UK or abroad, including full live stream details and the kick-off time.

The England squad (listed in full at the bottom of the page) looks very strong indeed. There’s a strong Leicester presence, with the exciting Harvey Barnes, James Maddison, Hamza Choudhury and Demarai Gray all involved.

Aidy Boothroyd can also call on the likes of Phil Foden, Morgan Gibbs-White, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Mason Mount, and Tammy Abraham − all extremely talented players who’ll be hoping some Premier League club managers will be watching on.

England, whose group also includes Romania and Spain, can’t afford to slip up tonight, with only one team from each group guaranteed a place in the knockout rounds. There are three groups altogether, so the best runner-up will also qualify.

Unfortunately for the Young Lions, France’s U21 squad also looks formidable.

Without further ado, here’s how to tune into the game.
