The Football Association is in the market for a new coach to lead the Young Lions after disappointment in 2021
Aidy Boothroyd is stepping down as manager of England U21s, the Football Association has announced, with European Championship failure in 2021 bringing his five-year reign to a close.

The Young Lions will not be in the knockout stages of the major championship this summer after being sent packing at the group stage thanks to a dramatic late goal from their opponents in a 2-1 victory over Croatia which saw a quarter-final spot fall agonisingly out of reach.

Boothroyd can look back on success at the 2018 Toulon Tournament, while a number of promising talents have made a step up into the senior squad.
