Holders England will face FYR Macedonia, Hungary and Latvia in this spring's UEFA European Under-19 Championship elite round.

The draw was made by last season's Netherlands captain Dani de Wit, who received the 2016/17 Respect Fair Play trophy from UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin on behalf of his team, but did his nation no favours by matching them with Germany, given a bye to this round alongside fellow top seeds Portugal.

Group 1:
Germany*, Netherlands, Norway, Scotland

Group 2: FYR Macedonia, England (holders), Hungary, Latvia
