England and Romania meet for the first time at the UEFA European Under-21 Championship final tournament this evening as the second round of Group C games take place.
The match takes place at the Stadio Dino Manuzzi in Italy and will be shown live on Sky Sports Football.
England are looking for their first points having conceded two late goals to lose 2-1 to France in their opening fixture, Phil Foden having opened the scoring.
In contrast Romania recorded their first ever finals victory on matchday one, beating Croatia 4-1 thanks to strikes from George Puscas, Ianis Hagi, Tudor Baluta and Adrian Petre.
This is the sides’ first competitive U21 meeting since October 2010, when they were paired together in play-offs for the following year’s final tournament.
England were 2-1 first-leg winners in the home first leg in Norwich thanks to goals from Jordan Henderson and Chris Smalling, going through by the same aggregate score after a goalless second game in Botosani.
Tonight’s match coverage starts at 5.00pm on Sky Sports Football with live streaming via Sky Go and Now TV.
