The U21 European Championships are in full swing and the group stages reach their finale this evening, with the standout fixture seeing Germany and Italy go head-to-head.

Both sides, as well as the Czech Republic, have a chance of finishing top of Group C and securing a passage to the tournament’s semi-finals, with Germany currently in the driving seat having won both of their matches so far.

Italy need to win to secure top spot, whereas Germany just need a draw, so it will be a difficult test for the Italians – but their squad is bursting with young talents, making a combined XI from the two nations look very good indeed.

Not only are some of the best youngsters in the world on show, many of these players have a point to prove ahead of the forthcoming campaign as they seek first-team football for their clubs and some have a chance of making their nations senior squads for the World Cup next summer.

Expect plenty of scouts to be in attendance and a wealth of transfer rumours regarding these players to appear over the next week or so, oh how we love silly season!
