This evening, Aidy Boothroyd brings his England Under-21 side to Stadium MK for their EURO U21 Qualifying clash with Austria.
Boothroyd and his team took to the Stadium MK turf on Monday night to prepare for the clash and adapt to their new surroundings.
Following the session, Boothroyd had nothing but admiration for Stadium MK and the job Chairman Pete Winkelman has done.
“We’re really looking forward to it, first of all, what an amazing Stadium, and what a great pitch,” The Under-21s Manager told iFollow MK Dons.
“It’s a great job done by the Chairman and it’s obviously a Club that is very, very well run. I’ve managed here before and was treated really well too, I’m looking forward to coming back and showcasing our England team that is packed full of talent.
“It’ll be a very tough game, they are a strong and quick team - it’ll be a difficult game. We’ve got some good players though and a style of how we want to play, we look forward to hopefully winning the game and putting in a good performance."
Boothroyd noted how the game in Milton Keynes is a chance for fans to see the upcoming generational talents that are looking to break into the Senior Squad in years to come.
“Anytime that we can take our games around the country, it helps people understand what we are trying to do and look at some of the talent we’ve got.
“I think it’s a good opportunity for people to say, I was there and I saw the likes of Callum Hudson-Odoi and Phil Foden in person,” it’s important that fans see who is coming through because these boys are chomping at the bit, they are not only hungry but talented.”
