The U21 European Championships kick off on Sunday 16th June, with Italy the hosts for this years competition. Unlike senior level, the U21 Euros are played every two years and it gives the finest young talent on the continent the opportunity to impress on the big stage.
The hosts come into it as favourites to go all the way but they're expected to face strong competition from the likes of France, Germany, Spain and of course England, who are led by former Watford boss Aidy Boothroyd.
He has a very strong squad to call upon which includes the likes of James Maddison, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Demarai Gray along with several others - so hopes are high that they can build on their semi-final finish two years ago and win it for the first time since 1984.
But it won't be easy, there are some very strong nations on display in Italy over the next few weeks with some top, top players. Some of these are already regulars for elite clubs around Europe and after looking through some of the squads, we've selected 5 players we think you should look out for over the next few weeks.
