The Under-21s last played in Milton Keynes six years ago when Gareth Southgate's team saw off Finland 3-0 thanks to a Saido Berahino brace and a goal from Michael Keane en route to qualifying for the 2015 edition of U21 EURO.
England have been drawn in qualifying Group Three and also face Andorra, Albania, Kosovo and Turkey.
