Norwich City winger Nathan Redmond was on target as England Under-21s breezed past Kazakhstan to maintain their 100 per cent European qualifying record.

Redmond fired home England's second goal at Coventry City's Ricoh Arena, after Chelsea's Ruben Loftus-Cheek had opened the scoring.

Chuba Akpom - on his debut - added to the scoreline and it should have been more as Loftus-Cheek and Akpom hit the woodwork.

Victory completed successive wins in their opening two Group Nine games in Gareth Southgate's side quest to reach Euro 2017.

England never looked in danger and doubled their lead on 69 minutes thanks to Jordan Pickford's brilliant vision.

The keeper picked out an unmarked Redmond with a stunning 60-yard pass and the Norwich winger cut inside before sliding past keeper Stanislav Pavlov at the near post.
