Man Utd recruit Zaha nets in England U21s victory over Romania

On-loan Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha opened his England U21 scoring account as Stuart Pearce's side beat Romania 3-0 at Adams Park on Thursday night.

The 20-year old, who signed with Manchester United in January, scored a sublime goal in the first half with a darting run that ended in a beautiful curling finish to set up the Young Lions' eighth straight victory.

Second-half goals from Liverpool's Jack Robinson and Aston Villa's Blackpool loanee Nathan Delfouneso further guided Pearce's men to another win ahead of this summer's European championships.

The England U21s have not lost since November 2011 and haven't conceded a goal during their eight-game winning streak.
