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.

Because there is no under-20 competition at UEFA level, England's under-20 side has generally only played competitive matches when it has qualified for the FIFA U-20 World Cup, which is held every 2 years. England are the reigning champions of this competition, after defeating Venezuela in the final of the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup.[1] Starting in the 2017–18 season England U20 will contest the Under 20 Elite League.

The team is currently coached by Paul Simpson.[2]
