Wifried Zaha says he enjoyed his return to England Under-21 action against Moldova as the Three Lions got their new campaign off to a winning start on Thursday night.
The Manchester United winger put in a lively performance as new Head Coach Gareth Southgate’s team secured a 1-0 victory over Moldova at the Madejski Stadium.
And the 20-year-old admits it was a deserved three points as England began their campaign to reach the next Euro Finals in Czech Republic in 2005, but is keen to show a bit more prowess in front of goal ahead of Monday’s match with Finland.
He told TheFA.com: "It was a good game really, we dominated it for most of the time and we just needed to take those chances.
"But all in all, we played well.
"We need to go back and work on our finishing, because we could have finished it early-doors tonight.
"We let go of a couple of chances and that might cost us in another game.”
It was Zaha’s first game with the Under-21s since the summer’s Euro Finals in Israel, with a new look squad of players in place under Southgate.
And after a week of preparation with the group at St. George’s Park, the former Crystal Palace ace was pleased with the way the squad have worked together.
"It was my first game with some of these players and we all play differently and just have to understand each other really,” he added.
"But for a first performance together, it was a good game for everyone
"The squad has gelled together really well, we all get on well and when we get on the pitch we're just on the same wavelength.”
