    England u19 started their Euros campaign with a 2-0 win over Bulgaria, goals from Chelsea's Mason Mount and Fulham's Ryan Sessegnon. We probably needed to make sure of that win, with the Netherlands and Germany up next.

    England U19s beat the Netherlands 1-0 to secure a place in the next round. England comfortably better throughout the game missing a host of chances, but finally got the only goal in the last 10 minutes.

    I could miss something here but wins by a two-goal-margin by Germany and the Netherlands would send England home.

    Ended 4-1,England suffering two early injuries but carried on undisturbed. 2-0 up before Germany pulled one back. Two more quickfire goals secured a comfortable margin of victory. 3 out of 3, group winners.

    Germany are knocked out thanks to the Netherlands' result.

    ....only for the U21, not for the U20 and U19. And it was (is still) a good summer for England's youth football.

    England was dominant here and won deservedly. Good luck for the semi-final against the Czechs!

    That is the thing - we are just delighted to win one competition.

    You guys make it sound disappointing!

    Those results are not telling the whole story.

    Take a look at our Under 21 squad which missed out to qualify for the euros 2011 and finished 3rd in their group behind the Czechs and Island with only collecting 2 wins, both against San Marino i guess. They were not even able to beat Northern Ireland:

    Today its the who is who of the world football. Some names who took part:

    Mats Hummels, Thomas Müller, Marco Reus, ter Stegen, Ilkay Gündogan, Andre Schürrle, Mario Götze als many many more

    We've not done too shabby ourselves with the U20, U19, U17, I certainly can't remember a summer like it!

    The problem/challenge for us, as you allude to above, is bringing those players though to fruition with senior football. Something Germany, Spain and France for example have done very well with previously successful youth crops. Only time will tell on that, I've not hugely optimistic, but its as good a base to work from as any.

    Of course it never tells the whole story. I've only pointed out, after your post about the good summer for Germany's youth teams, that it was only a good summer for the U21 (and not the U20, U19) and the U21's who played in the Confed Cup. Of course we have had some talent in the (actual) U20, U19, too but that wasn't what I meant

    btw: This is the thread about "The Future of England 2.0" and not about Germany's.
    I have never a problem to congratulate England's youth teams when they beat us (or are reaching a semi-final, a final (like the U20 WC)). Never saw a post from you where you congratulate (only writing about here that England could go home if this or that happens (which didn't happen) but maybe I've overread it?).

    Get in! 93rd minute winner to beat the Czech Republic. Stylish finish from a corner. Well done U19s. Losing count of all these finals this summer :lol:

    And that's Portugal turned over, England U19 Euro winners. Add that to the U20 world cup and the Toulon, quite the haul this summer from England's youth.

    Congratulations to the English U19 team. Well done, boys! Quite some success for England's youth teams this summer. I like that (if it's not Germany who wins the title I always want a british team (so normally England ;) ) to win it instead. At least the youth can fulfill it)

    Shame 90% of the fuckers will never play senior football at any decent level really aint it?

    Well, not in England anyway.
