Young Lions will have their work cut out at the Euros

Published Add your comment

England have been handed arguably the toughest possible draw for next summer's UEFA Under-21 Championship finals after landing Spain, Czech Republic and Ukraine in the group stage.

Stuart Pearce's men, who were runners-up in 2009 and semi-finalists two years earlier, appeared to pay the price for narrowly failing to secure seeded status for the tournament in Denmark as they found themselves in a strong looking Group B.

Group A looks on paper to have been much easier, containing hosts Denmark, Switzerland, Belarus and Iceland, who were seeded ahead of England by the narrowest of margins.
