    2019 UEFA Under-21 Championships

    The nine qualifying groups for the 2019 UEFA European Under-21 Championship in Italy and San Marino were decided by Thursday's draw in Nyon. A record 54 teams will be involved, with the first matches taking place in late March – nearly three months before the 2017 finals in Poland.

    2019 Under-21 qualifying group stage draw
    Group 1: Czech Republic*, Croatia, Greece, Moldova, Belarus, San Marino
    Group 2: Spain*, Slovakia*, Iceland, Albania, Estonia, Northern Ireland
    Group 3: Denmark*, Poland*, Finland, Georgia, Lithuania, Faroe Islands
    Group 4: England*, Netherlands, Ukraine, Scotland, Latvia, Andorra

    Group 5: Germany*, Israel, Norway, Republic of Ireland, Azerbaijan, Kosovo

    Group 6: Sweden*, Belgium, Turkey, Hungary, Cyprus, Malta
    Group 7: Serbia*, Austria, Russia, FYR Macedonia*, Armenia, Gibraltar
    Group 8: Portugal*, Switzerland, Romania, Wales, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Liechtenstein
    Group 9: France, Slovenia, Montenegro, Bulgaria, Kazakhstan, Luxembourg

    • The nine group winners will qualify automatically for the finals.
    • The four runners-up with the best records against the teams first, third, fourth and fifth in their group will go into the play-offs and be drawn into two ties to decide the last pair of qualifiers.

    Only 11 qualify from 9 groups so we have to come 2nd in our group, hope it's we are top 4 of 9 2nd place teams and then playoff against another top 2nd place team. Good chance of finishing 2nd mind.

    Galway United's Conor Melody called up. Gary Boylan & Regan Donelon from Sligo also in the squad.

    Anyone got the full squad?

    Of that squad, I think only Poynton and Melody, and maybe Curtis given our lack of strikers, would be likely to make a squad with English players. Noone and Feely could as well, but I don't think either is likely to play much with their club. Which is a shame because I think guys playing senior football are better equipped to play u21 ball than academy lads.

    Is there a reason Jamie McGrath and Sean Maguire were left out?

    Surely Maguire's overage?

    <EDIT>

    can't find the 2019 regulations on UEFA's site. but the 2017 regulations are here - http://www.uefa.com/MultimediaFiles/...0_DOWNLOAD.pdf - and was open to players born on or after 1 January 1994, Maguire was born in May 1994, so more than likely overage for the 2019 tournament

    2019 UEFA Under-21 Championships

    Could a mod maybe merge this with the already-existing thread for under-21 squads?: http://foot.ie/threads/189904-Under-21-Squad-Thread/

    I'd have posted this in that thread except for the fact it appears to be locked for some reason. Not sure why...

    Anyway, here's Noel King's squad for Ireland's upcoming under-21 European Championships group 5 qualifier against Kosovo in Tallaght on Saturday the 25th of March (1PM kick-off): http://www.fai.ie/ireland/news/king-...sovo-qualifier

    Italy and San Marino will co-host the UEFA U21 Championships Finals tournament. Ireland are grouped with Germany, Israel, Norway, Azerbaijan and Kosovo, who are entering the UEFA U21 qualifiers for the first time.

    The nine group winners advance to the finals with the four best runners-up entering a play-off to decide the final two spots in the tournament alongside the Italians.

    Renaming for this Championship qualification series.
    probably locked the last thread for the same reason as the other underage threads - one dedicated thread per qualification series and I'll move it to the archived match threads forum after the qualifiers end

    Should be able to make that game on Saturday week

    Nice to see some Harps representation there through Boyle. I don't recall the last time we had a player called up to a full under-21 squad.

    I can't understand why that match cannot be played in the evening, when there is no kids football on in Dublin.
    That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age

    Ciaran Gallagher was in one, wasn't he?

    O'Grady only relatively recently signed professional forms for Wednesday. Conceivably could be on the bench this Friday due to dearth of centre halves at the club right now.
    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    Nope. Ciaran has under-17 and under-19 caps but never under-21.
