England Under-21 manager Stuart Pearce is relishing a return to Norwich's Carrow Road for the UEFA European Championship play-off against Romania. Carrow Road has been selected for the first leg of the tie which will be held on Friday October 8.

Pearce said: "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 to the picth, generates some great noise and we'll want to recreate that with a big crowd there.

"The game is massive for England and our young players to give them some cutting edge experience."
