England U21 0-0 Poland U21

Middlesbrough winger Adam Johnson holds off a challenge
Middlesbrough winger Adam Johnson was England's stand-out player

An inexperienced England Under-21 side drew a blank in a friendly against their Polish counterparts at Molineux.

Stuart Pearce gave five players their debuts, but it was Middlesbrough winger Adam Johnson who stood out.

The 20-year-old had a first-half penalty claim turned down after one of several breathtaking runs.

Striker Frazier Campbell had a chance to add to his growing reputation near the end when he met Jamie O'Hara's cross but saw his shot deflected wide.
