first_img Aidy Boothroyd’s side are preparing for next month’s Euro 2017 competition 1 England Under-21s will begin their final preparations for Euro 2017 with a pre-tournament training camp. The meet next week is ahead of next month’s competition in Poland where the Young Lions open the championship against Sweden on June 16. Boss Aidy Boothroyd will use the time to assess the fitness of players while also running the rule over some new faces at St George’s Park.Uncapped Wolves goalkeeper Harry Burgoyne is expected to link up with the group which will be selected to attend training rather than being an official provisional squad. Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham scored 26 goals on loan at Bristol City this term and hopes to be included in the final squad after breaking into the Under-21 side this season.“It’s going to be tough but our aim is to win and do the best we can. I wouldn’t say we’re under pressure but we are going to do our best,” he said.“I have confidence going into it but it’s never going to be easy. Hopefully I’ve done enough this season to get into the team. If I have I’ll work as hard as I can.”England face holders Sweden while they also play hosts Poland and Slovakia in Group A. The Young Lions will be based in Kielce, in the south of Poland, with the semi-finals and final being held in Krakow.last_img
