Sean Davis put in a lively performance as England's U21 team thrashed their Dutch counterparts 4-0 at Reading's Madejski Stadium earlier this evening.

A Darius Vassell thunderbolt, a Jermaine Defoe double and a Malcolm Christie strike meant that David Platt's reign as England U21 manager got off to a winning start.

England U21: Stuart Taylor, Young, Bridge, Davis, Terry, Barry, Greening, Dunn, Jeffers, Chadwick, Vassell.

Subs: Johnson, Bywater, Prutton, Riggott, Bramble, Pennant, Parker, Christie, Defoe, Wilson, Wright.

Fulham will play a Reserve team friendly against Crystal Palace at Motspur Park this coming Saturday. Kick-off is 11am.
