England Under-21s were back in training on Monday morning as Head Coach Gareth Southgate took charge of his first session with the squad.
Watched from the sidelines by Roy Hodgson at St. George's Park, Southgate was joined on the training pitch by assistant coach Steve Holland as preparations for Thursday's game with Moldova started straight away.
Shooting practice was one of the elements of the session, with all the players taking part and the likes of Saido Berahino, Nick Powell and Harry Kane testing themselves against Jack Butland, George Long and Jonathan Bond.
And Southgate was pleased to see Hodgson taking such an interest in the Under-21s, before his senior squad arrive to begin training for their own game against Moldova at Wembley on Friday.
He said: “This is the beauty of being here, not only do the boys get to mingle with the seniors in the hotel and see how they train, but the Manager was watching them.
“I know he was really happy with the way they played last month and I know he’ll keep an eye on them.
“That crossover and interaction between them is really important."
