Chambers Nets In England Win

PUBLISHED

09:44 22nd March 2013

Southampton youngster Calum Chambers scored the only goal of the game as England's Under-19s beat their Turkey counterparts in Telford last night.

Chambers started the game at right-back, while teammate James Ward-Prowse captained the side and was deployed in midfield.

And it was 18-year-old Calum who broke the deadlock just after the half-hour, when his low ball from a tight angle deceived Turkey goalkeeper Onurcan Piri and snuck inside the far post.

Chambers was substituted 20 minutes from full time, while Ward-Prowse remained on the pitch for the entirety of the match on his first appearance as captain.

Utility man Calum now has six Under-19 caps to his name, with last night's goal being his second for Noel Blake's side. Ward-Prowse, meanwhile, was making his fourth appearance for the Under-19s.

Last night's game was England's final warm-up for their 2013 UEFA European Under-19 Championship Elite Round qualifying fixtures against Scotland, Belgium and Georgia in May.

Chambers and Ward-Prowse will now return to Southampton ahead of Easter weekend fixtures for the Saints First Team and Under-21s.

Meanwhile, at Under-21 level, Saints defender Nathaniel Clyne started for England against Romania at Wycombe Wanderers' Adams Park ground.

The right-back put in a resilient performance before being replaced by Adam Smith 16 minutes from time as Stuart Pearce's side ran out three-nil winners.

The game was the Young Lions' penultimate friendly before this summer's UEFA European Under-21 Championships in Israel.

Clyne will hope to feature again on Monday evening, when England take on Austria at the Amex Stadium in Brighton.

Luke Shaw was named in the England Under-21 squad for these two friendlies, but pulled out earlier this week after picking up a knock during Southampton's win over Liverpool last weekend.
