England will play against Switzerland, Portugal, and Croatia.

Cantwell had a fruitful season at Norwich City last season scoring six goals with a generally impressive performance both on and off the pitch.

Cantwell has remained an important figure in Norwich’s fight for promotion as they sit atop the Championship.

Cantwell began the season in and out of Daniel Farke’s side due to injury, but since scoring his first league goal against Cardiff in December he has kicked on, only missing two games.

England Under-21 will play Switzerland on Thursday at 5 pm March 25 in Slovenia.

They will then face Portugal at 8 pm on Sunday, followed by the final group fixture against Croatia on Wednesday at 5 pm.

Should they qualify from their group, England will then take part in the knockout phase which begins at the end of the season on May 31, due to the split nature of the tournament.
