stadium:mk: Hosts England U21 clash with Finland in November

Gareth Southgate's men face Finland at stadium:mk on November 14 and San Marino at Greenhous Meadow in Shrewsbury five days later.

The team kicked off their qualification campaign with a 1-0 win over Moldova and a hard-fought draw with Finland earlier this month.

By the time they reach their November games they will also have travelled to San Marino and faced Lithuania at Ipswich's Portman Road, both of those games coming in the mid-October international break.

"It's always good to be back on home soil for our qualifiers and hopefully we can get the results we want from these matches," Southgate said.

"It's a busy start to the qualifying campaign for us, but we want to try and be in control of the group going into next year."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
