England U21 vs Romania U21 Live Stream: Watch the European Championship online

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

Oh England. The Young Lions lost their opening match against France U21 in heartbreaking fashion, taking the lead through an outstanding Phil Foden goal, having a man sent off, surviving two penalties, and conceding twice at the death, the knockout blow being a freak 95th minute own goal that flew into the roof of the net off the toe of Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The format of the European U21 Championship means that nothing but a win will do for Aidy Boothroyd’s side tonight. And even then, England will be up against it.

Only one team from each group is guaranteed a place in the knockout rounds. But since there are only three groups, the best runner-up will also qualify.

As things stand, Romania top Group C with France, who are also on three points, in second place. England and Croatia are both on zero points, but England are third thanks to goal difference.

The Tricolorii mici, who have the son of all-time great Gheorghe Hagi in their side, battered Croatia U21 4-1 in their opening match. Win or draw tonight, and England will be out.

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