says fans coming to Brighton on Monday night can see an exciting England Under-21s team in action.

The team are currently on a record-breaking eight-game winning streak, which stretches back to November 2011, and has also seen England keep clean sheets in all of those victories.
Steele, who now has five caps after coming on for Jack Butland late in Thursday’s 3-0 defeat of Romania
, has played a big part in that run.
The Middlesbrough stopper says whoever features for the young Lions at the Amex Stadium the crowd will certainly be excited.
“No matter what team plays, fans can expect to see a lot of flair in this Under-21s side,” Steele told TheFA.com. “We have some very quick and attacking players that excite fans.
“We have some good young talent coming through so no matter what players the manager picks they generally do get the fans off their seats.”
He continued: “We have been scoring a lot of goals and we want to carry that on going into Israel as that is going to be very important for us.
“To keep eight clean sheets on the bounce, no matter what level you are at, is an absolutely brilliant record. Every single person in the squad should be very proud of the run we are on at the minute.
“We are doing a lot of things right and teams are struggling to deal with the force that we are showing. As long as we can keep that going then Israel could be brilliant for us.
“People can sense that we are maybe on the verge of something special and that we could do well this summer.
“We have a great spirit and a really good set of lads, who are all in it together and that's all a manager can wish for, to have squad that is fully behind the lads who are playing.”
Steele is also looking forward to a return to Brighton’s Amex Stadium where he is unbeaten for Boro against a side who he believes play football in the right way.
The fans on the south-coast also impressed the 22-year-old and hopes they get behind the Three Lions when they take on the Austrians.
“Brighton are a very good team, something very different in our league,” he said. “They spread out and try to play, in my view, the proper way, how football should be played.
“They try and pass it and have had a lot of success coming up through League One and have established themselves in the Championship and are now pushing on for promotion.
“We were 1-0 up from the first half last season and pretty much under the cosh in the second half, their fans were doing everything to get behind their team and will them on.
“They stuck by their team and pushed them on to get the equaliser. They obviously made a big impression all the lads."
He added: “With England we tend to get a food following wherever we play, but to go to Brighton and their stadium will be great for us and good for the fans to get a look at some of the lads coming through for England.
“Hopefully we can give the fans something to shout about.”
