Engerland’s youth setups (and the young Tottenham Hotspur stars that are a part of the teams) are having a pretty awesome summer. Just weeks after Josh Onomah and Kyle Walker-Peters helped the Young Lions win the U20 World Cup in South Korea, England’s U19s are in the semifinals of the U19 European Championships.
Spurs only have one player in this team, but he’s one to watch. Marcus Edwards has started one match and come off the bench to earn an assist in each of England’s first two group stage matches, and while he was an unused sub in Sunday’s 4-1 thumping of Germany, he will hopefully play a big role in today’s match against the Czechs.
One-time Tottenham target (and recent Fulham signing, sob sob) Ryan Sessegnon and Nottingham Forest striker Ben Brereton lead England with three goals a piece, but we all know that Messi with an Afro is just biding his time waiting to put in five before halftime.
How to Watch
Date/Time: Wednesday, July 12, 2017, 5:00 pm (UK), noon (ET)
Venue: David Petriashvili Stadium, Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia
TV: Eurosport (UK, most European countries), not televised (USA, Canada, Australia)
The bad news is that nobody in the States or surrounding region is televising this match. The GOOD news is that apparently UEFA is going to be live streaming the match on its YouTube channel. We’ll embed the live stream here when it goes up.
EDIT: Apparently UEFA has disabled embedding on their live stream, but I’ve updated the above link to take you straight to the stream.
The usual match thread rules apply. Let’s go Afro Messi!
