Calum Chambers expressed his happiness at rescuing a point for Saints' Under-21s at Manchester United on Monday.

The midfielder was playing his first game since returning from international duty with England's U19s, and put in a commanding performance as Martin Hunter's men played out a thrilling 3-3 draw.

It was Chambers' injury-time strike that rounded off the game but, with Saints having led with 20 minutes to go, the 17-year-old was somewhat disappointed the team didn't plunder all three points.

"I'm delighted to get the goal," Calum told Saints Player, "but we should have held onto the lead. 

"Obviously we didn't, so we had to take our chances when we got them and I thought I'd have a shot at the end.

"Luckily it went in – I looked back about three times to see if it did! It's another goal for me, which is good.

"I thought we deserved that draw, if not a win."

Chambers, along with Saints teammate Jack Stephens, recently spent time in Tallinn after receiving his first-ever call into the England Under-19 squad for their 2013 UEFA European Under-19 Championship qualifiers against Estonia, the Faroe Islands and Ukraine.

And, having helped the Young Lions top their group and scoring in the 6-0 win over the Faroes, the youngster was pleased with how his time away from the south coast went.

"It was a brilliant experience for me – I really enjoyed it," said Chambers. "I got myself a goal, which is good, and all the lads were great. 

"Hopefully I can go back soon in the future."
