England’s Under-21s recorded a comfortable 4-0 friendly victory against Sweden on Tuesday night, reports Eurosport.
A raft of second-half substitutions spoiled the flow of the game, but England were always in command and manager Stuart Pearce will be pleased with this performance, considering he was missing the likes of Southampton’s Luke Shaw, Raheem Sterling of Liverpool and Manchester United defender Phil Jones through injury.
Shelvey impressed many with his control in the middle of the park, while inexperienced Tottenham right-back Adam Smith also caught the eye with some impressive runs forward.
The Under-21s have now recorded seven successive wins, and seem to be preparing perfectly for the Euro 2013 finals later this summer which take place in Israel.
