England U21 seeks to end title drought

England U21 is looking to start with a good momentum with a win against the Czech Republic U21, as they aim to end their title drought. England failed to win a title in continental championships for 39 years already. As for Czech Republic, they last won a title during the 2002 tournament, and are aiming to end their title drought as well. These two teams have already met for five matches that these two teams played, England won three matches. The Czechs on the other hand have only one win, while the remaining one match ended in draw. Moreover, England is coming into this game losing just one of their last 11 matches, winning nine. As for Czech Republic, they are winless in their last five matches, losing to two of those matches. This meeting will be on June 23, 2023, at 12:00 AM (GMT+8).

England is coming into this match from a 2-1 loss against Croatia, which does not give them a good momentum here. They were able to book their spot in the contest after finishing at the top of their group in the qualifiers. Although they lost to their last match, England are still fortunate that they can have a source of confidence here. Their loss against Croatia is their only loss in their last 11 matches, so they still have the momentum. England only have two titles in their names, with their last title being recorded in 1984 in the contest. Since then, they failed to get another title, finishing in the last four in three editions since. However, in 2009, they were able to bag the runners-up medal, their best finish yet since 1984.

England is boosted by the presence of Emile Smith Rowe, as he will be playing in this match, being the only player for the senior team. Additionally, Noni Madueke, Oliver Skipp, and Jacob Ramsey are also leading England here.

Czech Republic might not have a good momentum coming into this game, as they last played as a nation in March. On that match, they were held to a 1-1 draw against the Netherlands for their friendly match. The Czech were able to book their spots in the contest, after finishing at the second of the same group with England in the qualifiers. A 2-1 win against Iceland in the aggregate helped Czech Republic to book their spots in the contest during the qualifiers. However, they are currently in a five-game winless run, where they lost to two matches. In the contest, Czech Republic is doing quite well, winning the contest during the 2002 edition. Moreover, in 2000, they finished as the runners up, which means they are doing well in the tournament.

Unlike their opponent, the Czech does not have any members who plays for the senior team. Nonetheless, despite their lack of experience, expect this squad to storm all odds in the contest.
