Ex-England Under-21’s: Where Are They Now?

By on June 17, 2015

With the 2015 European Under-21 Championship’s now well under way over in the Czech Republic, we thought this infographic would be of interest as it takes a look at the 112 players who represented the England under-21’s between 2000 – 2013 and asks; where are they now?

Worryingly for Roy Hodgson, only 49 out of the 112 went on to become full international’s, 3 chose to represent other nations while 14 players have never gone on to taste Premier League football.

12 players are currently without a club with only 47 plying their trade in England’s top flight, and 23 have since retired from the game. Of these 23 players, the majority have stayed in the game in coaching or punditry roles but 2 are unemployed while 1 is a car salesman.

The 112 players have amassed an impressive number of trophies over the years with 24 Premier League titles, 22 FA Cups and 6 Champions League trophies to their names. The most decorated player is Frank Lampard who has 9 major honours with Liverpool’s Jamie Carragher coming in second with six trophies.

Tottenham [14] easily provided the most players for the England under-21’s between 2000-2013 with the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool joint second on 9 players each.

The current England Under-21 side is due to kick off their tournament on Thursday night when they take on Portugal before facing Sweden and Italy in what is a very tough Group B. Hopefully the lads can do us proud.
