England Under-21s thrashed Slovakia in a friendly as Stuart Pearce's side rattled in four second-half goals.
Richardson scored England's first goal
Kieran Richardson's penalty put England ahead after Ashley Young was tripped.
Just past the hour Nigel Reo-Coker's deflected volley extended England's lead before defender Steven Taylor stabbed home the third goal.
Tom Huddlestone curled home the fourth while Leroy Lita grabbed the fifth with a calm finish, England going on to win a practice penalty shoot-out 4-3.
Pearce, the U21s coach, saw the shoot-out as good preparation for the European Championships which start next week in Holland.
Having famously missed a penalty in a 1990 World Cup semi-final shoot-out before redeeming himself against Spain at Euro 96, Pearce wanted to test his players under the pressure of match conditions.
The senior England team has not won a shoot-out since Pearce drilled in his penalty against Spain, and Sven-Goran Eriksson recently outlined his regret at not taking a "mental coach" to last year's World Cup.
England U21 coach Stuart Pearce:
"I was disappointed at half-time. We let the opposition pass the ball too much and gave them too much room.
"I said a few things and they reacted to that and put a good performance on.
"Ever since we met up for the training camp we have had a penalty shoot-out after every training session.
"We are learning from it. To have a penalty shoot-out in front of a crowd like that is invaluable experience."
