Villa's Gardner: England U21 players aware of expectations

England's U21 players know there is greater expectation on their young shoulders to win this summer's European Championships.

"We are aware of the coverage," said Aston Villa midfielder Craig Gardner. "It's a massive tournament and the season has finished, so we are the only team playing and the whole of the country are going to be watching us.

"Everyone in the camp is relaxed, the spirits are high and everyone is really confident. We just want to get out there now."
