WATCH | Glen Johnson and Aaron Hughes help launch 2020 UEFA European U19 Championship

Former Liverpool and England defender Glen Johnson joined Northern Ireland legend Aaron Hughes at the launch of the 2020 UEFA European Under-19 Championship at the National Football Stadium at Windsor Park last night. 

Johnson, who also counts Chelsea and West Ham among his former clubs, linked up with tournament ambassador Hughes as the countdown to the competition got under way.

Northern Ireland will host the eight-team UEFA tournament from 19 July to 1 August next year, with matches being played in Belfast, Ballymena, Lurgan and Portadown.

Rising stars of European football are set to play at the event which will feature up to 16 matches over 14 days. There will be 12 group matches, two semi-finals and a final – plus there’s scope for a play-off following the group stages if required.
