Much has been made about the state of English football following the dismal performance of the U21s at this summer's European Championship.

But Peter Taylor's U20s have the opportunity to restore some pride and coach Ehiogu thinks the build-up has been positive ahead of Sunday's opening game against Iraq.

Former Aston Villa and Middlesbrough defender Ehiogu said in the Daily Star: "There are a lot of good people working hard behind the scenes to get the players ready for the tournament when it starts.

"And we are ready - everything is in place."

England have already been in Turkey for more than a week as they prepare for the tournament and that has benefited the squad.

West Ham United defender Dan Potts said: "We want to come top, so we're only thinking about our performances and how we can win and qualify for the next stage.

"It's been a good week of training but now as the game is getting closer we're starting to take a look at the opponents. The build-up has been good and we want to get off to a good start."

Nottingham Forest defender Jamaal Lascelles added: "The Iraq game will be a massive match.

"We need to go into it like we did against Uruguay - confident and lively. And if we get after them from the start we should be okay."
