Redmond will be a key player when Gareth Southgate's England U21 squad go head-to-head over two legs with Croatia for a place in the Czech Republic, starting at Molineux.
"I'm finding myself with four men on me at times," says Redmond. "I expect to be targeted during games or getting a kick every now and then. It's toughened me up a bit. I can accept a bit of a kick or a nudge in the back now.
"It helps when we go away to places like Moldova (last month) as you know what's coming from the foreign players, who like to stamp on your toes or elbow in the back."
