Southampton defender Sam McQueen played the full game for England Under-21s, as they thrashed their Denmark counterparts 4-0 in Randers.

The left-back was given the opportunity to impress coach Aidy Boothroyd ahead of this summer’s European Championship finals and he duly turned in a strong performance.

McQueen himself went close to scoring in the 25th minute, only to be denied by keeper Jeppe Hojbjerg.

By then, though, the Young Lions were already 2-0 up, through efforts from Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Solly March.

They continued their dominance after the break, with Cauley Woodrow extending the advantage, before Loftus-Cheek added his second of the night to round off the scoring.

McQueen’s Saints teammate Jack Stephens, who played the full game in last week’s visit to Germany, was an unused substitute.
