​Boothroyd appointed England U21 boss

Former Watford and Coventry boss Aidy Boothroyd has been confirmed as manager of the England Under-21 team.

The Under-20 boss replaces Gareth Southgate, who vacated the role to become England manager.

"I've been at the FA three years; this is the logical next step," he said.

"I believe I am here on merit because I've worked in all four divisions and I've got an understanding of speaking to a League Two manager or a Premier League manager and the problems they have."
