City winger prepares for Under-21s play-off

NATHAN Redmond is happy to be involved with a united England Under-21s side ahead of their European Championship qualifying play-off against Croatia.

The Canaries winger has been an important member of Gareth Southgate’s squad throughout the campaign and will hope to make an impact in the first leg at Molineux on Friday (5.45pm).

Redmond says team spirit is high in the group leading into the game.

"Everyone enjoys training, everyone gets along with one another and there's not one lad in the team who's got a massive ego,” he said.

"It's not a team full of egos, but neither is it a team full of people who don't believe in themselves.

"It's full of young English players who are performing week in and week out in the Championship or Premier League and we look to bring our form here and fight for our place in the side.

"Everyone's humble, everyone's hungry, and we’re ready to play in the next two games."

The winger, who has started in all of City’s eleven Sky Bet Championship matches this season, believes Southgate’s outfit have got what it takes to be a threat against anyone.

“I think we've got the talent in the team to go and hurt most teams,” he told the FA's official website.

"We've shown in the qualifying stages we can score goals, we've scored 28, and we know what we're about.

"We all know what we want to achieve. We all want to pass the ball on the floor, we like to keep the ball.

"Playing for your country is a big honour for everyone involved, so it's spurred us on and now I want to qualify for these Finals and come up against some of the best teams and win it.”
