Turf Moor has been chosen to host England’s European Under-21 Championship qualifier against the Czech Republic.

The fixture – the Three Lions’ fourth match in Group B - will take place on Thursday, November 11 (KO 7pm).

“We are honoured to be hosting England U21s and bringing international football back to Burnley,” chairman Alan Pace told the club’s website.

“As a club with a passion for developing young homegrown talent, I am sure our supporters will welcome the opportunity to see the country’s most exciting players at Turf Moor and get behind England in this important UEFA Under 21 Championship qualifier.”

The Clarets were due to host a qualifier between England and Turkey back in March 2020, but the game was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Three Lions – now managed by former Republic of Ireland midfielder Lee Carsley – kick off their qualifying campaign against Kosovo on Tuesday, September 7.

Carsley – who took charge following Aidy Boothroyd’s departure - will be aiming to guide the England youngsters to the 2023 finals in Romania.

Burnley winger Dwight McNeil – who is no longer eligible for the Under-21 squad – helped the side reach the 2021 finals in Hungary and Slovenia, where they failed to reach the knockout rounds.
