    Solly March picked for the England Under 21's

    Just heard that Solly will be in the England squad to take on Germany and Denmark which will be announced later today.

    Good to see him getting the recognition he deserves. Still feel he will be a future England international - hopefully alongside Dunk.

      He was aged 22 at the start of the calendar year and will be 23 in July so surely he can't be picked as over the age limit.

      Think the age is relevant at the start of the qualifying campaign - have no idea when this was but may help...

      Otherwise - have no idea how he is included.

      Players born on or after Jan 1st 1994 are currently eligible to play Under 21 games and in this summers European U21's championship.

      It is always taken from their age on the 1st of January the year the qualifying tournament started, the current qualification process started in 2015.

      The above post is simply my opinion. I am not bullying you, should it differ from your own.

      He is eligible as International Competitions use dates of the calendar year for their youth age groups where as in England we use school years. For example a player born September 2000 is an Under 18 in England but an under 17 in Europe.

      Thank you that clears things up. Seems a crazy rule though.
