England U21 v Germany U21: Match preview

This summer’s European Championships are fast approaching and England U21s are preparing for the tournament with two testing home friendlies, the second of which sees Aidy Boothroyd's side take on the defending European champions at this age level.

Friday night saw England held 1-1 at Ashton Gate by a resilient Poland side after Dominic Calvert-Lewin's opener was cancelled out by a quite sensational free-kick by Sebastian Szymanski. 

Calvert-Lewin netted in the 13th minute of the contest after great work down Poland's left-hand side by Reiss Nelson teed up the Everton forward for an easy finish.

But after England's goalkeeper called for his defence not to form a wall, the Legia Warsaw midfielder punished the Southampton stopper with a stunning effort from 35 yards that curled up and over the wall into the top corner.

An England side featuring the creative talents of Phil Foden, James Maddison and Kieran Dowell would regroup and set about attempting to pick apart Poland's defence but found the visitors to Ashton Gate a resilient outfit.

Nelson and Dowell hit decent efforts just wide of the post while Everton's Jonjoe Kenny was denied joining his club team-mate on the scoresheet by the woodwork.

But despite the result, Boothroyd insisted he was "secretly pleased" with the way his team performed despite lacking the killer instinct in front of goal.

The result means the former Watford coach has guided the Young Lions to an impressive unbeaten run that now stands at 19 games and he will be hoping to extend the winning feeling into the summer and beyond.

And now England take on an even tougher test against the Germans as they continue preparations for this summer's European Championships in Italy and San Marino.

Boothroyd's side have been drawn in a group featuring France, Romania and Croatia after finishing top of their qualifying section.

Boothroyd has a glut of exciting options available to him even after Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Tammy Abraham's withdrawal through injury and Callum Hudson-Odoi's promotion to Gareth Southgate's senior squad.

And he could yet rotate his team to give some others a chance when they face Germany on Tuesday night at Bournemouth's Vitality Stadium on the south coast.

Leicester trio Demarai Gray, Harvey Barnes and Hamza Choudhury, Bournemouth's Dominic Solanke and Everton's Tom Davies were all substitutes against Poland and will be hoping to start. 

The likes of Fulham's Ryan Sessegnon and Tottenham right back Kyle Walker-Peters meanwhile were left on the bench and will be raring to face the defending European champions. 

But there were impressive performances in defence from Bristol City's Lloyd Kelly at his home stadium as well as a man-of-the-match display from Chelsea loanee Fikayo Tomori. 

So Boothroyd faces a balance to figure out his best formula ahead of the Euros. Beat Germany and the Young Lions will be riding high on confidence heading to this summer's competition.

England U21 v Germany U21: Team news

Chelsea winger Hudson-Odoi had been expected to make his debut for the U21 in these fixtures but has instead been called to the senior squad following injury to Manchester United's Luke Shaw.

Maddison has returned to the U21 set up after missing out on Southgate's senior squad while Wan-Bissaka and Abraham returned to Crystal Palace and Aston Villa with injuries. 

Germany's team features impressive Monaco defender Benjamin Henrichs, Huddersfield midfielder Abdelhamid Sabiri, Manchester City's on-loan striker Lukas Nmecha and Borussia Dortmund midfielder Mahmoud Dahoud.

England U21 v Germany U21: The managers

England U21 manager Aidy Boothroyd after the 1-1 draw with Poland: "We didn't have the final end product tonight. There were a lot of balls cleared by their defenders. We needed a bit more composure. But that is what the games are for.

"The whole point is to try to different things. They are big and strong and unbeaten in qualification. We dominated but could have ended up losing. It is a livener because there are good teams in the European Championships.

"We make mistakes but we have to learn from that. We switched off for their goal, but I am secretly quite pleased. Another win can lead to complacency. It is a reminder that international football is tough."
