Norwich City's Carrow Road stadium will host the first leg of England U21s European Championship qualifier against Romania next month. Stuart Pearce's side will host the Eastern European nation on Friday October 8, before travelling to Botosani for the second leg. "We're looking forward to the game but we know it's going to be tough. The Romanian's have qualified strongly against some good opposition so we'll need to be really well supported on the night so I'd urge everyone to come along and see us in action," said Pearce. "The game is massive for England and massive for our young players to give them some cutting edge experience of big international football matches at a great venue. "We've had some decent results at Norwich before and we've always been helped by a very passionate support. The atmosphere they create at Carrow Road, where the fans are really tight in to the pitch, generates some great noise and we'll want to recreate that with a big crowd there."
