Baker: England Under-21s can achieve something big

England Under-21 midfielder Lewis Baker has vowed they have no fear as they plot Euro 2017 glory.

The Young Lions are in the semi-finals of the tournament for the first time since 2009 after winning Group A in Poland.

They have moved to Krakow from their previous base in Kielce as they prepare for Tuesday’s last four game against Germany in Tychy.

And Chelsea man Baker insisted England are not frightened of any team, including favourites Spain – who they can only meet in the final.

“I think the pressure has come off us a little bit now because we got through the group stages and into the semi-finals,” Baker said.

“But I know the boys want to go as far as we can and we’re all looking to achieve something big.

“We’ve been in big games before like at the Toulon tournament last year when we won that.

“As a team and a squad we’re used to playing together in important matches so we’ll just take it in our stride.

“As you start playing more and more games the momentum starts building and the confidence builds and we’ve started playing like we know we can.”
