England U21 6-0 Scotland U21 – Friendly – 13th August 2013

Soccer - International Friendly - England U21s v Scotland U21s - Bramall Lane

To be beaten by a side which had Jonjo Shelvey as the number 10 and Connor Wickham as the centre-forward is nothing to be proud of, but to be hammered 6-0 by them should be a great cause of embarrassment.

Scotland’s U21 side were torn to shreds on Tuesday night at Bramall Lane by an England side managed by none other than Roy Hodgson, who saw his youngsters win with ease.

Nathan Redmond and Raheem Sterling put the Three Lions 2-0 up before half-time while soon after the re-start, Scotland and Spurs ‘keeper Jordan Archer produced a right howler of a mis-kick (on 4:10) to let Wickham lob home England’s third.

Ross Barkley netted the fourth before Shelvey then made it 5-0 courtesy of a superb effort. The drubbing was finally topped off by Tom Carroll as the future looked bleak for Scottish international football.

    Lovely goal from Shelvey, nice assist too. Seemed to be playing deeper than the number 10 suggested, roughly where Swansea want him. What a howler from the Scottish ‘keeper for the third though. Never seen one quite like that.

    Shelvey and Wickham both looked quite good from those highlights, think you’re beinga bit harsh on them, Alan.

    “Future of Liverpool” he said. “Invest in talent” they said.

    Why in the blue effs did we get rid of Shelvey..?
