England Under-21 boss Stuart Pearce was delighted with his side´s second-half showing as they thrashed Slovakia 5-0 in Norwich.

Kieran Richardson, Nigel Reo-Coker, Steven Taylor, Tom Huddlestone and Leroy Lita were all on the scoresheet at Carrow Road as England continued their build-up to the European Under-21 Championship in Holland.

Pearce told Sky Sports: "I was disappointed at half-time. We let the opposition pass the ball too much and gave them too much room. I said a few things and they reacted to that and put a good performance on."
