    Also the main reason I opened this was another fantasy league to get beaten in, http://en.u21fantasy.uefa.com/UEFA/15816/userhome.do

    England have very decent team.

    Butland

    Jenkinson Chambers Stones Garbutt

    Chalobah
    Hughes Ward-Prowse

    Redmond---------------------Lingard

    Kane

    Not sure what formation they play, they still have Berahino, Ings, Loftus-Cheek, Tom Carroll and Michael Keane in the squad. This is without Sterling, Shaw, Barkley who are eligible but missed out for various reasons.

    I'm not impressed by the English team. Not at all. I think the team clearly shows the state of the league in terms of giving the chance for their own youngsters.

    England would be impressive IF they actually sent their best squad, but they never seem to send their best. Than they wonder why they don't perform better.

    Look as some of the names other teams are sending: William Carvalho, Andre Ter Stegen, Max Meyer, Emre Can etc.

    Tbh that's not even the first choice of players who are eligible for U21s. IIRC players who are 23 are also eligible as they were 21 when qualification started.

    Butland
    Jenkinson/Chambers
    Jones
    Stones
    Shaw

    Wilshere
    Shelvey/Ward-Prowse

    Sterling
    Barkley
    Ox

    Kane

    I think all these players are eligible and that's a great team when it comes to U21.

    Jordon Ibe, Eric Dier, Berahino are all highly rated also who play regularly.

    I agree that in PL young players don't get much chance especially English players for top clubs and also England ever sends their best teams to the U21 competitions as clubs don't release all eligible players.

    English FA would rather let Barkley rot on the bench of the senior squad than start for the U21. Beautiful.

    Well Denmark is a size of 5,2 million people. This could have been their lineup if it wasn't because of injuries or clubs not allowing their player(s) to be selected.

    Busk (FC Copenhagen)

    Scholz (Standard Liege) - Okore (Aston Villa) - Vestergaard (Werder Bremen) - Boilesen (Ajax)

    Christensen (Chelsea) - Eriksen (Tottenham) - Højbjerg (Bayern München)

    Sisto (FC Midtjylland) - Yussuf Poulsen (RB Leipzig) - Fischer (Ajax)

    Okore, Boilesen, Eriksen, Lucas Andersen (Ajax), Casper Sloth (Leeds) and Cornelius (FC Copenhagen) were not selected. Lasse Vigen (Fulham), Emil Bergreen (Eintracht Braunschweig) and Frederik Sørensen (Juventus/Verona) are some of the substitutes. Only Christensen and Busk are not playing regularly in their clubs first teams. Yes the English team are better when it comes to the individual names but I see much smaller countries participating both in this championship and in its qualification (like Denmark) which I'm more impressed of watching. We are talking about England, the inventor of this game and the country with great football tradition, and not Russia, Turkey ect.

    Serbia could have great line up but...

    P.Rajković (Crvena Zvezda)

    M.Petković (Crvena Zvezda) - M.Nastasić (Schalke) - U.Spajić (Toulouse) - N.Petrović (Partizan)

    M.Jojić (Dortmund) - D.Brašanac (Partizan)

    F.Kostić (Stuttgart) - F.Djuričić (Benfica) - L.Marković (Liverpool)

    A.Mitrović (Anderlecht)


    Knowing that "we" play great in this young tournaments and so poor in senior level, this team could've won EC 2015.

    Serbia with enough talent to field a u20 World Cup team and U21 Euros team.

    When the senior team lost, everyone was calling for us to skip over this current generation and move towards youth. Then the youth and go out and pull a Guarin, forgetting how to shoot at a target.

    di biagio is making a lot of questionable decisions. bardi over sportiello? bianchetti over romagnoli? sabelli over biraghi? viviani over crisetig? baselli over benassi or cataldi for that matter? he's literally playing benchwarmers and serie b players over people who start and impress for their clubs in serie a. no verde, sala, el shaarawy, jose mauri in the squad?

    Watching the game Italy against Portugal right now and it is so nice to see half of the Italian team is practically owned by Inter. This feeling is even nicer if you remember that no one of them will get a real chance here

    Much better performance from Azurrini tonight, really should have won. Good games from Crisetig and Benassi.
