Charles N’Zogbia made his French Under-21 debut last night in a comfortable France win against Wales in Grenoble.
N’Zogbia played the full game and hopefully this will be one of many caps he will receive with the Under-21 side over the next two years.
France were the better side but found it hard to score until an own goal gave France the win.
Charles N’Zogbia – now France Under-21 international at last
England Under-21s had a good win away against Montenegro last night, as they won fairly comfortably 3-0. It was the first game that Steven Taylor started as captain of the team so it’s a good start for young Steven. Stalwarts James Milner and Steven played the full game for England and it’s an excellent start to their European Under-21 Championship qualifying schedule. James Milner set a new record by being the most capped player ever at the Under-21 level with 30 caps. Congratulations go out to James. Goals from Onuoha, Agbonlahor and Surman gave England the 3-0 win in Podgorica.
It was a good start for new manager Stuart Pearce in his first game since taking the job full time. England’s next match is in Bulgaria on Tuesday.
