Watch England's stars of the future at the iPro Stadium.

Derby County are to stage their sixth England Under 21 international fixture at the beginning of March.


It was confirmed in December that the Football Association had selected the iPro Stadium as their preferred venue for the 2015 European Under 21 Championships Qualifier between England and Wales on Wednesday 5th March 2014 (6pm kick-off).


Derby has hosted five England Under 21 matches in the recent past since moving to their new home in 1997.


The Rams’ impressive track record has prompted the Football Association to bring the Under 21 side back to Derbyshire for the first time in seven years for the mouth-watering home nations clash with their Welsh counterparts.


There’s also an added incentive for Rams fans to attend the game too as Academy product Will Hughes and on-loan duo Andre Wisdom (Liverpool) and Patrick Bamford (Chelsea) are currently part of the England Under 21 squad, who top their Qualification group with five wins and a draw from their opening six matches.


Meanwhile in the Wales camp there are also two links as Derby full-back Kieron Freeman, who is on loan at Notts County, is a member of the Wales Under 21 squad – which is managed by former Derby player Geraint Williams.
