England U19s tasted European Championship success again this summer

England Under-19s were celebrating European Championship glory in July 2022 following a 3-1 victory over Israel in Slovakia.

It was their first triumph since the Three Lions were successful in 2017 in Georgia, but what has happened to the 18-man squad that coach Keith Downing steered to victory?

Goalkeepers

Aaron Ramsdale

The Arsenal goalkeeper was at Bournemouth at the time and has established himself as the number one choice at the Emirates. Was part of the senior squad that finished runners-up to Italy at Euro 2020.

Nathan Trott

Born in Bermuda, Trott has yet to make his debut for West Ham but has enjoyed loan spells at AFC Wimbledon and in France with Nancy.

Defenders

Trevoh Chalobah

Has been at Chelsea since he was eight years old and made his first-team debut in the 2021 Super Cup final against Villarreal. Went on to make 20 appearances in the 2021-22 season and scored in the 4-0 victory over Juventus in the Champions League.

Jay Dasilva

Having been unable to force his way into the first-team at Chelsea, Dasilva had two loan spells at Charlton Athletic and then signed permanently at Bristol City in June 2019 after another temporary stay at Ashton Gate

Darnell Johnson

Was unable to break into the first-team at Leicester and after short loan spells at Hibernian, Wigan Athletic and AFC Wimbledon, has ended up at Fleetwood Town, for whom he made three appearances in the 2021-22 season.

Easah Suliman

Scored the first goal in the 2-1 win over Portugal in the final, and having failed to make the grade at Aston Villa, joined Portuguese side Vitoria Guimaraes in 2019 and spent last season on loan at another Primeira Liga side, Nacional.

Reece James

Firmly established himself as a regular at Chelsea and will have his sights set on being part of Gareth Southgate's squad for the 2022 World Cup. Has now made more than 80 appearances for the Stamford bridge outfit and earned 13 full caps.

Midfielders

Josh Dasilva

Having graduated from the Arsenal academy, Dasilva moved to Brentford and was part of the squad that took the Bees into the top-flight for the first time since 1947. He made nine appearances in their inaugural Premier League campaign.

Andre Dozzell

The son of former Tottenham midfielder Jason, Dozzell made his name at Ipswich Town just like his father and had made his debut at Portman Road before the tournament in Slovakia. He joined QPR in June 2021 and made 22 appearances in the Championship last season.

Tayo Edun

Made two appearances in four years at Fulham, but got his career back on track with a decent spell at League One Lincoln City. Moved up to the Championship with Blackburn Rovers in August and made 20 league appearances last term.

Jacob Maddox

Having featured at the Bristol City Academy, Maddox moved to Chelsea where he stayed for seven years and had loan spells at Cheltenham, Tranmere Rovers and Southampton. Moved permanently to Vitoria Guimaraes, but was on loan at League One Burton Albion last term.

Mason Mount

Mount, who scored England's first goal at the 2017 tournament in the 2-0 win over Bulgaria, is an established star at Chelsea following a successful loan spell under Frank Lampard at Derby and features regularly for Southgate's England team.

Ryan Sessegnon

Dujon Sterling

Forwards

Ben Brereton

Isaac Buckley-Ricketts

Started off at Manchester City and moved to the development squad, but a transfer to Peterborough was not a success and he ended up at National League North side Southport. Spent some time at Warrington Town on loan last season.

Marcus Edwards

Was hailed as a potential star at Tottenham but was never able to establish himself and had loans at Norwich City and Excelsior in the Netherlands. A decent spell at Vitoria Guimaraes led to a transfer to Sporting Lisbon, where he scored seven goals in 17 league appearances last season.

Lukas Nmecha

Born in Hamburg, but represented England at every age-group level, before switching to Germany Under-21s. Moved from Manchester City to Wolfsburg in 2021, scoring eight goals in the Bundesliga and has now made six appearances for Hansi Flick's full German side.
