Wilfred Ndidi wishes Leicester teammate good luck on Instagram

Despite the end of the Premier League season, some players are still yet to jet off on their holidays with the Nations League and Copa America taking centre stage.

The European U21 championship however has slightly gone under the radar, but the tournament is set to get under way on Sunday with England one of the early favourites to win it all.

With the side set to face France on Tuesday night, Leicester star Demarai Gray took to Instagram to share a video and message of them being ready for the beginning of the tournament.

Despite featuring heavily last season under both Claude Puel and Brendan Rodgers, Gray managed just four goals and the one assist in 34 Premier League games and even acknowledged that he needed to step up his contributions to the team.

With the Euros representing his final major tournament outing with the U21s, the former Birmingham City star admitted that he was desperate to end his time with the youth side on a positive note. He said (via the official FA website): “This is the biggest tournament outside of senior level this summer, it’s my last Euros, and I want to win it to end my U21s career on a high.”
