Weston Homes sell-out for England U21s

Weston Homes sell-out for England U21s

The latest England U21 game to be played at the Weston Homes Community Stadium will be a sell-out.

All 10,000 of the tickets for England's Euro 2013 qualifier with Iceland have been sold for the game at Colchester's home.

U21 manager Stuart Pearce had this to say: 'it's great to see we'll be playing at Colchester in front of a full-house. We enjoyed our last visit there a year ago, winning 3-0 against Lithuania, so we'd be pleased for a similar outcome this time around to send the supporters home happy afterwards.

'Our two away wins in Iceland and Norway earlier this month have put us is a good position in the group.

'There is plenty of work to do yet, but we'll keep building and hopefully when we meet Iceland again in Colchester, the sell-out crowd will be right behind us to give the players an extra lift.'

The game is played on Thursday 10th November, with a 7.30pm kick-off time, and can be seen live on ESPN if you are not at the stadium.
