England Under-21s gave themselves a timely morale-boost by hitting Scotland for six in this evening's friendly clash at Bramall Lane.

Roy Hodgson was in charge of the side, who won thanks to goals from Nathan Redmond, Raheem Sterling, Connor Wickham (2), Ross Barkley and Tom Carroll.

The only real negative point for the Young Lions came shortly before the interval when midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah sustained an injury from a Tony Watt tackle and had to depart the field on a stretcher.
