Leeds United centre-back Charlie Cresswell will hope to help England Under-21s round off a fine week at the European Championships when they look to preserve their perfect start to the tournament on Wednesday evening
The young defender impressed during a season-long loan at Championship club Millwall and he could be handed a key role at Elland Road during the upcoming season as the Whites prepare for life back in the second tier. Cresswell’s form at The Den earned him a call-up to the England squad for the European Under-21 Championships and he joined the likes of Arsenal star Emile Smith-Rowe and Nottingham Forest’s Morgan Gibbs-White on the plane for the tournament.
The Three Lions youngsters have enjoyed a fine tournament so far, claiming 2-0 wins against the Czech Republic and Israel over the last week to ensure they will progress into the quarter-finals. Cresswell is yet to make an appearance but he could get an opportunity to add to his 10 Under-21s caps when his side round off their group stage fixtures on Wednesday afternoon.
