Duo help England U21s to victory

By SFC Media Thu 06 Oct International

Southampton’s Nathan Redmond and James Ward-Prowse helped England Under-21s seal 2017 UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualification.

A 1-0 victory against Kazakhstan away from home assured England of top spot in Group 9 with a game still to go in their qualifying campaign.

Fellow Saints Matt Targett and Jack Stephens were not involved, with the former missing out with a slight injury and Stephens an unused substitute.

There were just six minutes on the clock when Ward-Prowse and Redmond made an impact. The former found his teammate out wide, and he crossed for Demarai Gray, who finished confidently to give Aidy Boothroyd’s side an early advantage.

Ward-Prowse then went close to doubling the lead for the visitors, but his shot sailed over, before Mason Holgate’s looped cross hit the top of the crossbar.

One goal proved to be enough for Boothroyd’s Young Lions, as they confirmed their qualification for next summer’s tournament.
