Norwich City winger Nathan Redmond scored a brilliant long range goal as England Under-21s thrashed Guinea 7-1 in their second match of the Toulon Tournament in the south of France.
Redmond's spectacular strike just before half-time put Gareth Southgate's side 3-1 ahead in Aubagne - and the goals continued to flow after that.
You can see the highlights in the video above. Redmond's goal is at 2.40.
The comfortable win made it two wins out of two after Thursday's 1-0 victory over Portugal and sets England up nicely for tomorrow's final group game as Paraguay.
Guinea had stunned England by scoring after just 45 seconds when Thierno Diallo's scuffed effort took a bounce off the turf to wrong-foot one-time City Academy starlet Angus Gunn, who was making his debut at under-21 level.
England soon got into their stride however and equalised when Cauley Woodrow crossed to the far post for Jack Grealish to volley home.
England took the lead on the half-hour mark when captain James Ward-Prowse slotted home from the penalty spot after Naby Sampou was adjudged to have blocked John Swift.

The turnaround was complete four minutes later, when Redmond took aim from 30 yards to fire home an unstoppable shot.
And on the stroke of half-time, Grealish had his second of the night, when he ghosted past two defenders before drilling a low shot into the bottom corner.
The Three Lions added a fifth less than ten minutes after the re-start as Grealish set up Woodrow for a shot which was saved by Ousmane Doucoure before bouncing back off Mohamed Toure and creeping into the bottom corner for an unfortunate own goal.
Woodrow got the goal his endeavour deserved soon after when he found space on the left to slot a low finish past the exposed Doucoure to make it six.
And the Fulham striker had his second soon after when a raking pass from Nathaniel Chalobah sent fellow substitute Duncan Watmore clear down the left. He placed a cross to the far post where Woodrow arrived to side-foot home from close range and complete the scoring.
By that time Redmond was on the bench, having been replaced by Chelsea's Kasey Palmer on 54 minutes.
Gunn, the son of former Norwich goalkeeper and manager Bryan Gunn who is now at Manchester City, played the full game.
