England U21 News and Form

England threw away an advantage in their opening game of the tournament. They had survived one penalty kick against them before Phil Foden produced a bit of individual magic to give the young Lions as second-half lead. They survived another penalty kick following that, but it was a costly one as Hamza Choudhury was sent off for a rash challenge in the box. That fully gave the French the upper hand in possession. England almost survived, but conceded in the 89th minute, before Aaron Wan-Bissake scored an own goal from a stoppage-time corner.

England did come racing out of the blocks and had the French on the back foot in the first fifteen minutes. But after that, they were poor in possession and losing Choudhury saw them lose even more of it. Now they need a response, they need a win to have a chance at getting to the semifinals as they did two years ago. This will be the first time England have met Romania at the Euro U21 Championship. England hold a W3 D2 L1 record against Romania. The loss against France is back to back defeats for England U21 by a 2-1 scoreline. They are winless in three (D1 L2). The pressure is all on them now.

Key-Facts – England U21 v Romania U21

  • England are winless in three games
  • This is the first meeting between the two
  • Romania are on a five match winning streak

 

Romania U21 News and Form

The Romanians produced a big 4-1 win over Serbia to open their Euro U21 Championships and that was their first ever victory in the Finals. That was a big score for them which leaves them top of the group after one round of matches. That’s a big haul of goals too. In their qualification campaign, the Romanians posted a W7 D3 L0 record edging out Portugal for the top spot. They are currently on an eleven match undefeated streak of form and have won their last five on the bounce.

Romania have also hit the back of the net at least twice in each of their last five games played. With England having to come out and be positive, this could be a good open, high scoring game. Romania will probably be targeting a big three points to keep their noses in front of France at the head of the table before going up against the French in the final round of matches. Romania to have three clean sheets in their last four.

England U21 v Romania U21 Predictions

England U21 to win: The young Lions have to put on a show in this one to get themselves back into the picture for at least a shot as the best of the runner’s up. Romania are not a pushover because they are in good form. But England to win & both teams to score looks a nice proposition.
