We can put things right, says Ward-Prowse

James Ward-Prowse says there is an onus on England under-21s to put things right after a number of tournament disappointments.

The Young Lions, captained by the Saints midfielder, drew 0-0 with Sweden in their opening Group A game.

And with only one side able to progress, their must-win game against Slovakia takes on additional importance, which is further reinforced by the hurt of previous occasions.

“There’s six or seven of us from the last time so we’ve all got those feelings and that hunger to get things right,” Ward-Prowse said.

“We want to make sure that we’re not having those same feelings again… it’s not a nice feeling when you don’t reach the level that you should do.

“The team and the way that we were playing two years ago... we should have gone on further. But that gives us all an incentive.”
