Five stars of the U21 Euros so far: Asensio, Mawson, Neves, Zima, Meyer

The Under-21 European Championships is down to the final four with England taking on Germany and Italy against Spain. Here are five young players to have taken the tournament by storm already.

Marco Asensio -- Spain

Marco Asensio has had a quick rise with Real Madrid.

Really, this tournament hasn't told us anything we don't already know about Marco Asensio. Of course he was sensational in Spain's first game against Macedonia, scoring a hat trick and occasionally looking like he was playing opponents a few years younger than him.

"He is a player that...

Paul Simpson: English coaches proving worth with youth team successes

The FC crew discuss the differing impacts of England's victory at the U-20 World Cup and Venezuela's run to the final.
Fresh off winning the U20 World Cup, many are hoping England's youngsters can kick on in the Premier League.
England's Dominic Calvert-Lewin has described his U20 World Cup winning goal as life-changing after they beat Venezuela 1-0 in the final.

World Cup winner Paul Simpson insists English coaches are proving they are good enough to take the top jobs.

The former Carlisle boss guided the England under-20s to World Cup glory in South Korea earlier this month.

Boothroyd, England U21s having fun with pressure ahead of Poland test

Two goals in a nine-minute span in the second half helped England overturn a 1-0 deficit to see off Slovakia.

England Under-21 boss Aidy Boothroyd hopes the Young Lions will be able to give Poland the boot at Euro 2017 after his bargain shoe buy.

The manager has been spotted wearing a pair of London brogues on matchdays as he tries to guide England to glory.

The shoes, which were reduced to £39.99 from £75 when Boothroyd found them on the high street, include a streak of blue suede which has stood out on the touchline.

Victory over hosts Poland in Kielce on Thursday would book England a last-four...

England U21s need to step up after riding their luck at the Euros in Poland

Two goals in a nine-minute span in the second half helped England overturn a 1-0 deficit to see off Slovakia.
England manager Gareth Southgate reflects on his team's loss to France.

England's Under-21 side are riding their luck. Had it not been for Jordan Pickford's penalty save against Sweden, they would have lost their opening game. Had it not been for a second half fightback, they would have lost their second game against Slovakia too. England need a win against hosts Poland to ensure qualification, though a draw may be enough. Either way they will have to improve dramatically if they're to emulate the success of other England's other young lions.

This has been an unexpectedly...

Alfie Mawson says England U21s have shown they can 'hack' Euro pressure

Two goals in a nine-minute span in the second half helped England overturn a 1-0 deficit to see off Slovakia.

Defender Alfie Mawson believes the England Under-21s have shown they can "hack'' the pressure at Euro 2017.

The Young Lions face hosts Poland on Thursday for a place in the semifinals following their comeback victory over Slovakia.

Mawson scored the equaliser before Nathan Redmond completed a 2-1 win in Kielce on Monday and put England top of Group A with one game left.

A dressing room inquest at half-time helped inspire their recovery after Martin Chrien's opener and Mawson feels the Young Lions...
