England U21 comfortably defeated Wales 2-0 in last night's friendly in Wrexham.

Tom Huddlestone and Theo Walcott, both in the full squad for the internationals against the United States and Trinidad and Tobago, were on the scoresheet in the first half.

Huddlestone opened the scoring from the penalty spot, then Walcott doubled the lead for Stuart Pearce's youngsters when his finish deflected in.

England boss Fabio Capello also saw Joe Hart, Gabriel Agbonlahor and David Wheater play.

Pearce has backed his five players to feature under Capello when they meet up with the senior squad.

"We've got a squad of 31 in the seniors and the bottom line is you might lose a couple through injury - it's a perfect opportunity with the two matches to look at one or two of them.

"If any of these get on the pitch they will do themselves credit."
