England U21 2-0 Norway U21 – Match Highlights

A superb solo goal from Danny Rose added to Daniel Sturridge’s opener to help England cruise to a 2-0 victory against Norway in their final friendly before the European Under-21 Championships

Stuart Pearce’s Young Lions showed their senior counterparts the way to beat supposedly lesser opposition less than 24 hours after Fabio Capello’s men stuttered to a 2-2 Euro 2012 qualifying draw against Switzerland.

Sturridge put England ahead inside nine minutes and Rose struck a brilliant second five minutes before the break. The home side should have added further goals in the second half after making a raft of substitutions, with Pearce’s understudies threatening to steal the show.

Several of his youngsters will travel to the finals in Denmark looking to stake a claim in Capello’s ageing squad and they will be expected to do well despite the controversial withdrawal of Jack Wilshere from the squad, as well as injuries to Andy Carroll and Micah Richards.
