The England national under-17 football team, also known as England under-17s or England U17(s), represents England in football at an under-17 age level and is controlled by the Football Association, the governing body for football in England.

In July 2015, Steve Cooper was appointed to coach the squad with assistance from Mike Marsh.[1]

Competition history[edit]

UEFA European Under-17 Football Championship[edit]

The England under-17 team compete in the annual UEFA European Under-17 Championship. In 1984 they finished in third beating Serbia 1-0 in the third place match. England were the hosts of the 2001 Final Tournament, with the English reaching the semi-finals where they lost 4-0 to France on 3 May. They finished fourth, losing the third place play off match 4-1 to Croatia. They finished third in 2002 in Denmark and fourth again in 2003 in Portugal and 2004 in France. The 2007 tournament saw England finish as runners-up in Belgium. In the final, held at the Stade Luc Varenne in Tournai, they lost 1-0 to Spain on 13 May. In 2008, they failed to qualify for the finals. They reached the final tournament in 2009, but finished bottom of their group.[citation needed]

In 2010 the England under-17 team fared much better in the group stages, winning Group B with maximum points - ahead of Turkey, Czech Republic and Greece. This saw them qualify for the semi-finals of the competition, hosted in Liechtenstein, where they would meet Group A runners-up France. Thanks to two first half goals by Connor Wickham, England won the game 2-1 and rendered Paul Pogba's second half effort a mere consolation. Victory against the French would set up a final with 2007 and 2008 champions Spain, who themselves had beaten Turkey. In the final at the Rheinpark Stadion the scoring was opened by an Andre Wisdom own goal when the defender deflected a cross by Spain's Gerard Deulofeu into his own net. It took eight minutes for Wisdom to atone for his error, when he headed in on the half-hour mark to make the score 1-1. Despite Spain dominating much of the first half, Ipswich Town's Connor Wickham scored his third goal of the competition just before the break when the 6'3" striker maneuvered around three Spain defenders and slotted the ball past goalkeeper Adrián Ortolá. England held onto their 2-1 lead in the second half as it proved enough for captain Conor Coady to lift the trophy. The victory represents England under-17's first ever UEFA European Under-17 Football Championship title since the annual competition began in 1982.[citation needed]
