England national under-18 football team, also known as England under-18s or England U18(s), represents England in association football at under-18 age level and is controlled by the Football Association, the governing body for football in England. The team is coached by Kevin Betsy. [1]

Contents

The team competed in the FIFA International Youth Tournament (later taken over by UEFA) and its successor, the UEFA European Under-18 Championship, and was often referred to as England Youth. [2] [3] After the tournament was renamed to the European Under-18 Championship, England won twice more, in 1980 [4] and 1993. [5] In 2001, eligibility rules changed and the competition was rebranded as the UEFA European Under-19 Championship.

Nowadays, the under-18 banner is used for participation in international friendlies. The 2017 Toulon Tournament was also composed largely of under-18 players. [6] [7]
