England won their second match of the Nordic Tournament, beating Denmark 2-0 in Kauhava.
Just 24 hours ago, Kenny Swain’s side got their season off to a flying start with a 5-0 victory over the host nation Finland and they followed it up with another impressive display against a resolute Danish side.
It was 0-0 at half-time but two goals inside four minutes saw England run out victorious. On 69 minutes, Birmingham City’s Nathan Redmond put the Young Lions ahead before Crewe Alexandra’s Max Clayton sealed the win on 74.
England’s final group game of the Nordics is on Friday, against Iceland.
