Where Are They Now? The England Team That Won The Under-17 European Championships in 2010

England won the UEFA Under-17 European Championships back in 2010, but where are the members of that Three Lions squad now?


The side, then managed by John Peacock, beat Spain in the final, with La Furia Rojo boasting future stars like Jese Rodriguez, Paco Alcacer, Gerard Deulofeu and Juan Bernat.


So, whatever happened to these esteemed and revered stars now? Well, read on and all will be revealed.

1. Jack Butland (Stoke City)

Jack Butland is one of the most successful players from the 2010 squad. The Stoke City  goalkeeper has nine England caps and was included in Gareth Southgate's 2018 World Cup squad.


Butland featured regularly in the Premier League before the Potters' relegation and made 45 Championship appearances during the 2018/19 season.

2. Bruno Pilatos (Free Agent)

Bruno Pilatos' career took such a turn that there are no pictures of the full back in the extensive 90min image bank.


After being released from his Middlesbrough contract in 2013, Pilatos joined non-league side Darlington. He then spent time with Crook Town and Jarrow Roofing , before joining Ytterhogdal in Sweden.

3. Luke Garbutt (Oxford United, on Loan From Everton)

Garbutt is one of the few players on this list who are still at the club they played for when they won Under-17 silverware with England. The left back has had loans at Cheltenham, Colchester, Fulham and Wigan. 


He has 11 caps for England Under-21s but has never made an appearance for the senior side. He spent the past year on loan at Oxford United but it doesn't look like he'll break into Everton's team any time soon.

4. Conor Coady (Wolves)

After leaving Liverpool in 2014, Coady signed for Huddersfield and made 48 appearances for the Terriers before joining Wolves a year later.


The tough-tackling defender is now one of the first names on the team sheet at Molineux and played a crucial role in their promotion to the Premier League and their seventh place finish in the 2018/19 campaign.

5. Andre Wisdom (Derby County)

Wisdom joined Derby County from Liverpool in 2017, for an initial fee of £2m that could potentially rise to £4m. The right back's last loan spell of his Liverpool career was at Red Bull Salzburg during the 2016/17 season. 


He is another player who was capped by England to Under-21 level but hasn't managed to break into the senior team. Wisdom has made just 11 league appearances during Frank Lampard's first year at Pride Park.

6. Josh McEachran (Brentford)

McEachran, a graduate of the Chelsea academy, had a number of loan spells before making a permanent move to Brentford in 2015 and settling down to enjoy his football.


The midfielder, whose younger brother George is currently at Chelsea, has played over 100 times for the Bees but has not featured in a Three Lions shirt since his last cap for the Under-21s in 2013.

7. Nathaniel Chalobah (Watford)

Defensive midfielder Chalobah joined Watford on a permanent deal from Chelsea in 2017, after racking up six loan spells including Nottingham Forest, Middlesbrough, Burnley and Napoli.


Chalobah received a call-up to the England senior squad for World Cup qualifiers in 2017, but did not make an appearance. Due to the imperious form Hornets duo Etienne Capoue and Abdoulaye Doucoure, Chalobah has struggled under Javi Gracia.

8. Ross Barkley (Chelsea)

Barkley has had the most success of anybody on this list. The creative midfielder has 22 senior England caps and 151 Premier League appearances to his name.


The 24-year-old moved from Everton to Chelsea for a fee of £15m in January 2018 and has slowly grown into a dependable midfielder under Maurizio Sarri, but faces competition for a regular spot from N'Golo Kante, Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

9. Will Keane (Hull City)

Keane left boyhood club Manchester United to sign for Hull City in 2016. The striker, brother of Everton defender Michael, is yet to hit 100 career club appearances, despite being 26 years of age.


The Stockport-born striker has been capped by every England age group from England Under-16 to Under-21.

10. Benik Afobe (Stoke)

Winning the Under-17s Euros is definitely Benik Afobe's career peak so far. After a myriad of loans away from Arsenal, the striker moved to Wolves. He conversion rate was good, scoring 23 goals in 48 games, before moving to Bournemouth.


Things didn't work out on the coast, and he returned to Wolves initially on loan before making the move permanent. However, Wolves decided to make a quick buck by sending him out on loan to Stoke and including a £12m obligation to buy, making a £2m profit.


He's managed eight goals and two assists in 45 Championships.

11. Connor Wickham (Crystal Palace)

Former Ipswich and Sunderland striker Wickham has endured serious issues with injuries over the last few years and last played for Crystal Palace in January, scoring against Tottenham in a 2-0 FA Cup win.


He scored in the 2010 UEFA Under-17 final and managed three goals during the tournament.

12. George Thorne (Derby County)

Central midfielder George Thorne joined Derby County from West Brom in 2014. His career has stagnated due to a number of serious injury problems since 2013.


He most recently helped Luton Town to promotion to the Championship after joining on loan in January.

13. Saido Berahino (Stoke City)

Berahino will be best known, unfortunately, for the drawn out saga that surrounded his transfer from West Brom to Stoke City in 2016/17. 


The striker has been criticised for his attitude and has failed to hit the ground running since his move to the bet365 Stadium.


He has been capped up to Under-21 level for England.

14. Rob Hall (Oxford United)

Forward Rob Hall joined Bolton from West Ham in 2013, and had loan spells at MK Dons before signing for Oxford United in 2016. 


His last England cap was for the Under-19s in 2012 and it's fair to say the winger has not fulfilled the potential he showed during his England youth days.

15. Sam Johnstone (West Brom)

Johnstone had all sorts of loan moves during the early stages of his career, spending time at Scunthorpe, Doncaster and Preston and failing to make a single appearance for parent club Manchester United.


He proved his ability during two seasons at Aston Villa, before joining current club West Brom for a reported £6.5m.

16. Ben Gibson (Burnley)

The 25-year-old centre back ditched Middlesbrough in August 2018 for Burnley, but is yet to dislodge the defensive partnership of Ben Mee and James Tarkowski.


Gibson received his first call up to the England senior team in March 2017, replacing injured Chris Smalling in the squad for a World Cup qualifier against Lithuania. However, he is yet to make his first cap.

17. Tom Thorpe (Free Agent)

Former Manchester United defender Tom Thorpe is currently a free agent, last plying his trade at Indian Super League outfit ATK (formerly known as Atlético de Kolkata).


Thorpe made one senior appearance for Manchester United and also played for Birmingham, Rotherham, Bradford and Bolton during his time in England. He moved to India in 2017 to play for then-manager Rene Meulensteen.


The defender has played for England up to under-21 level.

18. Luke Williams (Scunthorpe United)

Luke Williams joined joined Hartlepool in August 2018 after spending times at Middlesbrough and Scunthorpe, but is yet to make his Pools debut due to a series of injury setbacks.


He didn't score at Under-17 level, but netted once for the Under-19s and twice for the Under-20s.
