England national under-16 football team, also known as England under-16s or England U16(s), represents England in association football at an under-16 age level and is controlled by the Football Association, the governing body for football in England.

The head coach is Steve Cooper, who was appointed in October 2014.[1] He is assisted by Dan Micciche.[2]

Competition history[edit]

Between 1925 and 2014, the England under-16 team competed in the annual Victory Shield tournament against Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Since World War II, England had won the Victory Shield outright thirty-five times and had been joint winners with Scotland eight times, with Wales twice and with both Scotland and Wales twice.[3] However, in April 2015, the Football Association decided to withdraw from the tournament "for the foreseeable future" with the stated aim of replacing it with matches against European and global opposition.[4]

In 2005, the team made their debut in the annual Montaigu Tournament, held in Montaigu, France.[5] England have won the competition three times, in 2008, 2011, and 2015, defeating the hosts France in the final on all three occasions. In 2008 and 2011, England won in a penalty shoot-out after a 0–0 draw,[6][7] while in 2015 they won the final outright by 3 – 1.[8]
