Winning return for Reo

West Ham's Nigel Reo-Coker captained England under-21s to victory over Poland at Hillsborough tonight.

The 21-year-old midfielder missed Friday's 2-1 defeat at Leeds with an ankle problem but was back to his best tonight as England breezed past the hapless Poles.

Anton Ferdinand - who was hauled off during Friday's shock 2-1 defeat against Austria - also played the full game and will be pleased with his performance.

England opened the scoring through Chelsea's Carlton Cole on 18 minutes before Jerome Thomas of Charlton doubled the lead just three minutes later.

A third was added through Newcastle's Steven Taylor eight minutes prior to the break before Poland scored their only goal of the night on 39 minutes; Marcin Kikut notching what would prove to be a consolation strike.

Worse was to come for the Poles with 13 minutes remaining when Pawel Strak was given his marching orders; England capitalised on the extra man advantage by adding a fourth two minutes from time; Taylor grabbing his second of the night.

Good news for West Ham is that both Reo-Coker and Ferdinand appeared to come through the game unscathed.
