He has over 60 England youth caps to his name but Nathan Redmond insists his international hunger is as strong as ever, as he looks to take his next step.

The 21-year-old Canaries winger is away with the England Under-21s for a European Championship qualifier against Kazakhstan in Coventry tonight. He will be hoping to pick up his 25th cap at U21 level and his 64th youth cap overall, having represented England through the age groups since playing for the U16s.

Now that he is becoming an established force for Norwich in the Premier League, Redmond hopes his continued U21 experiences will boost his chances of senior recognition.

'I'm just trying to work hard here (at City) to give myself the best chance to get into the senior squad, that's one of the aims for this season, to get into one of those squads,' Redmond said.

'We've only got one game, but I always relish the chance to go and represent my country because it's a proud moment.'

Redmond is currently one of the senior members of Gareth Southgate's Young Lions squad.
