Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse wants to do the international double and make it two wins out of two for Gareth Southgate’s new England U21 side.
Ward-Prowse made his debut in their 1-0 win over Moldova on Thursday night and hopes to take momentum into this evening’s clash with Finland.
Another debutant, Saido Berahino of West Bromwich Albion, scored England’s only goal in that game and Ward-Prowse hopes the duo can combine with the rest of the team to provide a fruitful match once again.
“We’ve analysed their weaknesses and their strengths and our training has been based around how we can deal with that,” He told FATV.
“But we’ll be going out to play our normal pressing and passing game to hopefully try and beat them.”
It was a comfortable win for Southgate’s men against Moldova but one criticism would be that they should have been more critical in front of goal.
“We were really decent, but a bit disappointed with our standards in the first half.
“We could have moved the ball a bit quicker, but credit to them with their last-ditch defending at the end.
“It was 1-0 and maybe it could have been four or five, but we’ll be out to score some more goals on Monday night,” 18-year-old Ward-Prowse said.
He also commented on making his debut declaring: “It’s always nice to come into the squad and get in there straight away. I’m absolutely delighted to get the start and long may it continue.
