England national under-20 football team, also known as England Under-20s or England U20(s), represents England in association football at an under-20 age level and is controlled by the Football Association, the governing body for football in England. The current manager is Peter Taylor who was appointed in March 2013 replacing Brian Eastick who had managed the team during the 2009 and 2011 tournaments.
Because there is no under-20 competition at UEFA level, England's under-20 side currently only competes when it qualifies for the FIFA U-20 World Cup, which is held every 2 years. Qualification for this competition is achieved in view of performance at the preceding summer's UEFA European Under-19 Football Championship.
