Fraizer makes Czechs pay!

Fraizer Campbell's fine form continued with the opening goal as England Under-21s beat the Czech Republic 2-0 in a friendly on Tuesday night.

The striker capitalised on defensive hesitancy to neatly lift the ball over goalkeeper Jakub Divis and into the far corner to hand Stuart Pearce's side the ideal start at Sheffield United's Bramall Lane.

Fraizer was one of three Spurs in the starting XI alongside Jamie O'Hara and Aaron Lennon. Meanwhile Tomas Pekhart, currently on loan at Southampton, played the first half for the Czech Republic.

Fraizer was soon back in the action, setting up a golden chance for James Vaughan, who fired over.

Aston Villa's Craig Gardner drilled home a free-kick to make it 2-0 after 55 minutes and Fraizer and Jamie almost combined for a third when Fraizer was brought down for a penalty - unfortuntely, Divis saved Jamie's spot kick.

Fraizer was substituted after 69 minutes, Jamie after 80 and Aaron played the full 90 - Fraizer was later named man of the match.
