​Southampton winger Redmond aware of breaking Shearer's record

Southampton winger Nathan Redmond says that he is aware that he stands on the verge of breaking Alan Shearer's England U21 goal scoring record.

The 23-year-old scored his tenth goal for the Young Lions in the 2-1 win over Slovakia in European Championships on Monday. As things stand, Redmond finds himself just three goals short of Shearer's all-time record of 13 goals.

He said: "I'm aware, I'm just going to keep plugging away for the team and if the chances come take them.

"I've thoroughly enjoyed my Under-21 and England youth team career as a whole. The whole development stage has got me to this point."
