Rose and Kelly give England youngsters victory
England under 21s defeated Uzbekistan 2-0 with Fabio Capello watching on in a match they dominated but struggled to find the net. The breakthrough eventually came in the 64th minute when Tottenham’s Danny Rose fired in the rebound from Daniel Sturridge’s blocked shot.
Liverpool defender Martin Kelly doubled the lead 11 minutes from time when Uzbekistan keeper Sanjar Kuvvatov made a right hash of his fairly harmless header.
England’s new goalkeeper Frankie Fielding but in a good display, but it was the performance of Everton youngster and captain for the evening Jack Rodwell that will have really impressed Capello.
