Tom Huddlestone and Ben Alnwick are on familiar ground as England Under-21s prepare for European U21 Championship qualifiers at Spurs Lodge.

The Spurs pair have taken part in two training sessions at our training base with the second this Tuesday morning, September 4.

After a warm-up, manager Stuart Pearce and assistant Steve Wigley turned their attention to tactical work while goalkeeping coach Martin Thomas put Ben, Joe Hart (Manchester City) and Joe Lewis (Norwich, on loan at Morecambe) through their paces.

England travel to Montenegro on Friday (September 7) and Bulgaria next Tuesday (September 11) in their opening qualifying matches in Group C. Pearce's men reached the semi-finals of the tournament in Holland in the summer, losing on a penalty shoot-out to the hosts and eventual winners.
