Nick Cox, Head of Academy, explained to us his excitement at what lies ahead for the Under-19s.
“Everyone’s really excited that we’re playing against top opposition,” he said.
“Of course, at this stage of the competition, all the teams left in it are really good teams, but you want to play against the very best.
“The boys want to make progress, they want to get to a final. That’s part of our thinking, but for me and for our staff, it’s about how do we regularly put our players up against the very best so that we can learn, develop and improve. So the chance to play a high-profile fixture against European opposition is one that we welcome.”
