Manchester United star Wilfried Zaha has warned his England Under-21 teammates that they must improve on their finishing.

Zaha was in impressive form for England's 1-0 win against Moldova at the Madejski Stadium - but he was disappointed at his side's inability to kill the game off.

The home side dominated the match but were only able to breakdown Moldova's defence once through West Brom striker Saido Berahino.

Zaha, speaking to the Football Association's official website, said: "It was a good game really, we dominated it for most of the time and we just needed to take those chances.

“But all in all, we played well.

“We need to go back and work on our finishing, because we could have finished it early-doors tonight.

"We let go of a couple of chances and that might cost us in another game.”

The match was England's first game since Gareth Southgate replaced former boss Stuart Pearce as manager of the Young Lions and Zaha feels it may take his side a couple of games to gel as a team.

“It was my first game with some of these players and we all play differently and just have to understand each other really," added Zaha.

"But for a first performance together, it was a good game for everyone. The squad has gelled together really well, we all get on well and when we get on the pitch we're just on the same wavelength.”

Zaha, who played the full 90 minutes against Moldova, is likely to start for Southgate's side in their second 2015 European Championship qualifier against Finland on Monday.
