Keane's England goal glee

Manchester United's Michael Keane was delighted after scoring in England Under-21s' 3-0 home win against Finland on Thursday night.

The Stockport-born defender's opening goal propelled the Three Lions on to what was a comfortable victory in the UEFA European U21 Championship qualifying match, and the United protégé could not have been happier to net his second goal for the team.

"They seem to come in patches for me, but I'm always happy to get on the scoresheet," Keane told FATV. "It was a great ball in [from James Ward-Prowse] and I knew if I'd get in the right area I'd get a chance. Luckily it went in and it settled us all down."

However, despite being satisfied with both the result and the performance, the young defender urged caution and warned his team-mates not to get too carried away following the 3-0 win.

"We could have done with a few more goals and played a bit quicker. I'm happy with the result, but we won't be taking anything for granted," Keane added. "We'll prepare right for our next game [against San Marino] and hopefully when it comes we'll put some goals in the net."
